clocks

Looking for ideas on clock replacements or repair sources for my 71 &73. I have the old 73 clock and could probably replace the works. The 71 dial is printed onto the contol panel and I also need works and hands.

Also any ideas on instrument sources which would fit the original control panel holes?

You might try checking the classifieds in Hemmings Motor News. There are several firms that rebuild automotive clocks, and one of them may be able to help you out with rebuilding the '73 clock and the works for the '71 clock.

http://www.hemmings.com/

The website doesn't have all of the advertisements found in the actual periodical, but will give you an idea of what might be available.

Good luck with your projects!

Kevin

I still have not yet done any disassembly on mine. But I have a plan.
I picked up an assembly manual, now I know how it comes apart

If you are looking for a quick, cheap fix you might go to a hardware store or craft store and pick up a battery powered "movement" kit that includes the inerds for making a clock. They run about $5 each. They use a single AA battery runs about a year or two on each battery.

We did this on a cheap kitchen wall clock and used wall paper and self-adhesive numbers to re-do a clock to make a "custom" clock face to match our kitchen. When we re-wall papered the kitchen again a couple of years ago, we re-wall papered the clock face, too, and have a "new" custom clock.

All you would need to do is remove the lock washer and insert the shaft that holds the hands through the face plate and re-apply the lock washer and attach the hands. You can get different styles of hands and cut them to length with tin snips.

time for a clock question

My clock does not work with a new battery. It is loose from the control faceplate. How do you remove it from the faceplate? It's to big to get through the hole, it does not seem to unscrew? After I get it fixed, how was it/can I mount it to the faceplate? MPJ BTW, 1973 Tradewind.
