I got the clock set properly and am inside the clock tower. I know the required number to set on the gear mechanism and I know what all the levers do. However I can't seem to work the levers in the correct order before the weight hits the floor. Can someone help with the sequence (spoiler)?

SPOILER- This is sort of hard, so I don't think it's much of a spoiler. Without focusing on the numbers at first, operate just the right lever several times and reset the puzzle. Operate the left lever several times and reset the puzzle. Compare what happens for a brief pull versus a continuous pull. You will notice that a single brief pull of the right lever turns the top and middle rings together. But holding the lever continuously turns the top one once, and the middle one continues. The same concept works for the left lever, except the bottom ring moves once while the middle ring continues. With this understanding, reset the puzzle and pull in this sequence: (1)Pull right lever once briefly. (2)Pull right lever once briefly (3) Pull left lever and hold on until the sequence is correct then LET GO! Puzzle solved! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif
