clock fix?

Has anyone fixed a clock that is only right twice a day??

Has anyone seen a tach that fits in the clock space?? I really dont need the clock but hate looking at one that doesnt work,,,or a hole.

Or maybe a tach where the tach was in these cars and the gas gauge where clock goes???

OR was there a clock delete blank that fits there??

Re: clock fix?

I haven't seen a "clock delete" plate. Clocks are an option so technically they can't be deleted, they just are not ordered. I've only had one car with a clock, that one had a lens in front of the clock as a separate piece. The rest have a "plate" there that is part of the dash carrier. I've never owned a 69 with a tach but I think there might be a center gas gage available for cars with tach and no console and console gages

Re: clock fix?

I had a small tach that fit in the clock space many years ago. It was a stewart warner and was the same size as a regular guage but that was back in the mid 80s.

Re: clock fix?

You could try a aftermarket tach or just replace the dash pod. All the replacements I've seen at classic, ricks etc all come without the clock cutout. Or order a replacement or rebuilt clock available at the same places and flea-bait.

Re: clock fix?

You could have your clock repaired. I had mine fixed but it only lasted two years. I then had a new quartz movement installed and now it keeps perfect time.

Re: clock fix?

Does someone sell the quartz retro fit as a kit or do you have to send your old clock in?

I did the quartz replacement on my 68 years ago. Still works great. Easy to do, too.

Re: clock fix?

Re: clock fix?

Mine died too, rather than spend a fortune having it rebuilt I used a small hobby store clock battery operated type. It mounted right in the same center hole, I had to change the battery after 2 years but this worked for me all that is missing is the shaft that worked the clock hands from the front.
