Unlock the lever at base if it isn’t already.
I am going to teach you how to level clock without using the spirit level. We are going to look at the balance, which is the true level that matters. Think of it just like a plumb bob or hanging a washer on a string.
Follow balance tube down and see where stop collar passes through the hole in lower bridge to see if it is level by looking for a gap in the hole. Collar should cover the hole.
If not, then level it with leveling screws in the front
Set the time. Only moving clockwise
Look under the 12 on the dial and spot where the roller is resting on fork
Turn balance that direction
Move the roller 270 degrees and let go
Carefully slide the lid back over the clock
You would rather err on the bellow drum than snap the minute hand off and break center-wheel
The balance will naturally loose motion as it comes under the power of the mainspring
When you spin balance it is under your kinetic energy
You will not know if the clock is going to run or keep time for quite a few hours. And it is best to allow it to run a week at least to categorize it as a running clock
