You have a combination of parts there. The suspension spring is for an old antique longcase clock. The Bob and wooden pendulum  rod it for a Hermle, German  movement. I think your best bet would be to post pictures of your clock movement.

then we would know what you may need.

hope this helps.

Hi

Picture is below and i can see how how the suspension spring connects and I have tried it and that works fine.

Its slightly annoying as I sent pictures to the people I got the parts from and purchased the bits they suggested, I note the rectangle block at the end of the spring is threaded so I assume the rod would screw into that ? 

Thanks in advance

Regards

John
