Q: Clock Repairing
Does anyone know of somone who repairs these clocks? Mine lights up but the hands don’t turn.
A: I have the original clock in my 1969, I just took it out and opened it up. I redressed the contact points and oiled the gears. I powered it up and it worked. It wasn’t that complicated.
A: There are a few companies listed in Vintage Parts 411, Year One, and Hemmings Motor News catalogs that repair these.
A: Go to the electronics store and get a product called ‘Blast Off’ to clean the clock mechanism. Then use a tiny bit of very light oil, run the thing hooked to the battery for several days before reinstalling. If this doesn’t work consider having it converted to a quartz.
A: I sent mine out to a company to have rebuild it using a quarz movement. It’s kept perfect time now for 3 years and you can’t tell any difference. Junk the mechcanical movement – they’re not worth the money. I spent about $100.
