Clock accuracy

The clock in my 69 is not accurate. Are they adjustable?

Re: Clock accuracy

They are clean-able. If it is original there is a winder that winds the clock every so often. A watchmaker shop can look at it. Or you can purchase just new quartz guts for an old original to keep the look and the sweeping second hand, or you can but a new replacement quartz unit that has a jumping second hand.

Re: Clock accuracy

I have a quartz replacement in mine, but if I remember this correctly, on the OEM clocks if it runs too fast wind the arms a few full times counter clockwise and if it is too slow do it clockwise.
