The spring winds up and releases fine. I did not wind it ALL the way. I took it about 1/2-3/4 but I didn't want to risk damage. The round SWIRL piece the rotates to ring the bell needs to be put back onto the shaft to actually ring the bell.
Right now it spins but does not hit the bell. There are some scratches and signs of use, but no rust and great color! Please see pics for more details.
