I used quite a complex way of setting garter holes in the correct position in relation to pulley position, drops and draws, wheel diameters, and tangents etc. There must be an easier way.
Have you compared the offending bell with any of it’s neighbours, which you don’t think have a short handstroke and going from what you find there?
Just a thought

      A bell in our group is suspected of having a short handstroke . My thought is that this is something that can be measured with the bell down ( of course ).

      If a line is taken from the garter hole to the gudgeon and another from the gudgeon to the pulley an angle is formed between the two . Too little resulting in a short handstroke . 

      Am I correct please and if so what is accepted to be the correct angle ?
