The clock adjustment knob is threaded onto the shaft. From memory I have used needle nose lock pliers to hold the shaft and regular pliers to turn knob off the shaft. You can use some cloth to help protect the shaft and knob from scarring.

Thank you for respond .I did try and I can't move the knob.I'm afraid to brake it.

I slipped a bit of heat shrink over the ends of 2 pair of long nose plyers. (spelling?)

Once heated, it grips both pretty good.   

I did what Kevin suggested and it did work!! I used WD40 first and later I used heat shrink over pliers and still it was very hard to move that knob.And finally I was able to move the knob.Now I do have another question.The plastic cover for clock and headlight instrument -how we can restore them?My plastic on headlight instrument is foggy and have some scratches.

Thank you

Paul

Its a neat trick huh. :-)

If it is a Borg clock, I have new a chrome bezel and a new lens for 50.00  Just email me at  russ85747@Hotmail.com if you are interested.

On the back it say Westclox Lasalle.

It is hard to tell how much your clock lens might clean up using the lens cleaning solutions available at auto parts stores, however, the chrome bezel looks like it will clean up considerable. Some you already have some degree of pitting I would take 0000 steel wool and soak with WD40 and lightly go over it being careful not to go over the lens with the steel wool.   I do have some Westclox front bezels and lenses but not sure of they would be better than yours once cleaned up.

What do have are some excellent instrument cluster bezels. The main clear lens is $35, or $55 with the black backpiece. If interested shoot me an email to jasonedge@nc.rr.com with shipping address.

The new parts wont fit.

Check out ,www.ClocksAndGuages.com they did my clock. Happy with results 

I do have restored clocks for sale. 150.00 with your old clock sent to me.  Comes with a new chrome bezel and lens.

There are two brands of clocks used in our year cars
Borg and Westclock
The Borg ( German ) internal mechanisum is very much superior to the Westclock and the one in my car that ran for 42 years non stop - unbeliveable !
I have one of each
The Borg has been repaired by me ( a broken wire in the wire wraped magnet ) and back in the car still keeping perfect time for 54 years and still going like --the Everready Rabit
The clock in our cars Has to be one of the very best clocks ever used in any car with the results i have had
A very nice suttle thing that does Amaze the people viewing the car and have them understanding the quality Cadillac went to in these years to use the best possible materials available in its time slot
The fact the clock is still always running does amaze both myself and my wife who often comment about that when in the car
Only when you get the clock to run can you understand what i am saying about the experience

TIME --to blow some car lovers minds with your running clock for 54 years in my case

Enjoy

Which way does the connector for the window cut out, normal, emergency switch go?

Started by john kilbourne in 1963/64 Cadillac Specific Discussion 3 hours ago. 0 Replies

The connector has three evenly spaced ports. It looks like it could go either way. I, idiot, made careful notes and then lost them. The wires are red, white black stripe and yellow black stripe. Continue

So after cruising around a bit and waiting in a line, the temp gauge got to a little past half way. I got out of the line and the car just died. It's like there's no battery. The clock has no power,…Continue

64 Power Servo vacuum leak

Posted by Kent Prows on June 27, 2020 at 4:02pm 0 Comments

I finally got around to fixing a leak in my heater core.  I decided to check to see if there were any other obvious issues while I had everything torn apart.  When I put a vacuum directly (bypassing the transducer) to the power servo it gets to about 10" and then slowly leaks back to zero.  The fan will not go to full and the mode door will not open completely.  I have read a couple of other posts that said they repaired the power servo leaks.  How?  Does anyone have one to sell?  I just…
