I'm always happy to have misinformation corrected!
Perhaps my memory is faulty, but I seem to remember seeing an old photo which showed typical wooden headstocks, with at least one stay sticking up, but little or nothing left in the way of wheels. Would you have any idea of when swing-chiming motors were installed? and on how many bells? That certainly would not have been how the bells were chimed when a semitone was first added.

I'm afraid this is not true.
They were hung for swing chiming by motors and controlled from the organ
