The Eureka Electric Clock 

Eureka movement parts

Picture showing Front and Back plate, Steel armature, regulator piece and front cover

The balance pivots run on ball bearings, this clock has two but I have seen them with three. Make sure they are clean and lightly oiled.

When, and if, you dismantle the bearing housing take care to find the thin paper washer between the glass disc and the retaining ring.

Some pictures below of a different style of Eureka which has the balance wheel behind the
 dial. This clock was recently purchased at a  clock fair,  held at the Birmingham Motorcycle Museum, a great source of old clocks and bits--well worth a visit.
