This is the one hundred and third puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Clarence. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out which way the bucket will move when the handle is turned clockwise.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Think about the direction that each cog will move, starting from the one connected to the crank.

    The direction that each cog moves will change depending on cogs, pulleys, and ropes connected to it.

Hint Two
    When two cogs connect, the second one will move in the chain. The pulleys will change the direction in which the rope moves.

    When a pulley is connected to a cog or another pulley, the direction will be reversed if the rope is crossed and stay the same if it doesn't cross.

Hint Three
    The first cog with the crank handle attached to it turns clockwise. The rope connected to it doesn't cross, so the cog connected to the rope will also turn clockwise.

    The next connection is between two cogs, so the direction will reverse to counterclockwise. Keep moving through the chain of cogs, pulleys, and ropes in this manner.

Super Hint
    The final cog will move clockwise.

    So will the bucket go up or down?

What a complicated mechanism for moving one lousy bucket, eh?
