What kind of clock is it? My 67 has a battery powered traditional clock with hands and my 83 has a digital LED clock. I replaced the clock mechanism in the 67 with one from a crafts shop and kept the original hands. Works great, and was under $10. A photo of yours would help.

Hi,

Welcome. If the clock face is still there you can get a battery powered replacement body and hands at Michaels. We replaced our movement and painted the hands to make it match the original.

Twinke, Is this roller for the tambor in the eyebrow cabinet or one of the bigger overhead storage cabinets? I just threw out a complete unit from a '75 Sovereign but I'll have some from a Safari soon.

The problem I had with the Michael's stuff was that you had to change the hands also . I was lucky enough with a local clock repair shop to find a replacement mechanism that would take the original slip on hands . I'll try to find out what brand and model , may take a few days till I'm back that way .

Hello Twinke74,
I did the same as Vaughn in my 70' Caravel; same as Vaughn did; twice as I have had the unit for 25 years. For the Cerritos units, it is usually mounted in the control panel module; I recommend you take it out first and take the old one to the craft shop to match the length of the stems and also reuse the hands if they are in good shape and tight. The new clocks use a AA battery whereas my original unit used a C cell; however they run in the new quartz mechanisms for about 2 years very accurately where as the old C cell went out in about 6 months and never kept really good time.
Tambor for the Cerritos units differed from the Jackson center units, yours might have been plastic by 74; I replaced all of mine with the plastic style in the early 80's just after I bought my unit and they are still in great shape. I worked in the factory in the late 60's as a consultant. I do not think there were many 74 units built at the Cerritos plant; the vintage site has the facts I think.
