I am the original owner of a 67 Camaro S/S with a mechanical clock mounted as part of a three gauge cluster (oil pressure/alternator/clock) mounted on the console.

The clock stopped working years ago - where can I get the clock repaired?

Several options:

I think Year One may offer a repair kit.

Look for a local speedometer repair shop. They can usually repair all types of automotive gauges.

Hemmings usually has several advertisements for this type of repair.

And finally, North Hollywood Speedometer and Clock. They are located just outside of downdown LA. They did both the clock and tach on my '68 tic-tock-tack and it was perfect. They also do work on Jay Leno's cars. (818)761-5136

I fixed mine myself.... there is a set of contacts that energize a coil the activates the rewind mech... look at the points to see if they are dirty..... if the clock will wind when you apply 12volts to the lead then it can be that it is just dirty [that was what was wrong with mine].. I cleaned it by using lacquer thinner lightly and then oiling had to repeat this step many times over 3 days to get all the old thick oil out .. the oil has to be light machine oil like for a sewing machine.... heavy motor oil wont do it.... any way if this doesnt do it then you can send it out... best choice is to change the works to a Quartz setup price around 80-90 bucks then it will stay accurate

I fixed mine but it didn't last. The best bet is to get a quartz conversion. I got one from Ricks First Generation but any Camaro parts catalog will have them. They are real easy to swap and work great.
