Its funny ya know, this thread has inspired me to get my own clock sorted. 

So i rang a mate and said.....  can you fix a clock?

Next week, he's getting a clock to sort out for me.


Do you have the clock in your CDV ( Dino ) in working condition for the show circuit ?
( now thats a very silly question i would be thinking )
When at the shows you should inspect the other cars for a running clocks
Bet you might find NONE of them running like yours will be unless you are with other Cadillacs ( not sure other year Cadillac clocks are of such high quality )

How are you feeling my fearless leader regarding your leg recovery ?
Hope the subject is history


Tony, I took one of my best looking clock and sent to Clock Works (www.clockwks.com) about 15 years ago and had it converted to quartz so I do not have to set the time (unless I disconnect power.) You lose the slight tick movement with the second hand as it become smooth, however, clock face and looks stays original, and you have the ultra precision of quartz. I think I spent about $109 back then and sure it is a bit more now, but WELL WORTH IT!

You mean your Clock is not original - with the stock 2 minute click -- UH OH !!!
Not sure about this at all
That could be the tie braker at the GRAND NATIONALS --LOL !


Neither is my Pertronix and Edelbrock. Think about the clock they (the judges) would not know about the clock or Pertronix unless you tell them. So.. how much hush money do I need to send!  The thing about CLC judging and most similar type judging is it is based on the appearance of original, as delivered new from the factory.  To be honest there is not original to my car... including the hood, left fender, transmission, windshield, tires, etc, etc. etc.  A lot of my car parts are of course off of original 1963's and 1964's, but not original to my car. I have quite a few reproduction items on my car such as mirror, chrome, etc.  And of course there is the issue of my car came from the factory Bahama Sand and ended up Sierra Gold, an original color for the year but not for that car. So... mostly original in appearance, … even the clock, and distributor cap, although what lurks behind/beneath is anything but original.

Now i have to fix my clock also, Dang It !!

Oh man, yesterday, I popped the clock out of the Fleetwood.

I had just relaxed back into the seat and put my clock in my lap and the door still open when the wife walked past.

She said, (with an odd look) "What are you doing?"

I said, "I just got my clock out" and gave her a goofy smile.

She just shook her head, muttered something about me having an unhealthy connection to the car and she may have used the words.... sick, weird... I think the F bomb came out... oh bugger. 

Why am i thinking the next time you are Judging the winning car in the 63-64 Cadillac Grand National event ----you will take a minute to see if the clock has -----the very special and unusual two minute click --it came with when factory stock and is still keeping the CORRECT TIME OF DAY ---PRICELESS restoration detail

I will get a grip now -- but the clock in my 64 has been such a very remarkable enjoyable experience for me and many others


Operation is a criteria,.. and very important, but we do not say measure the up/down speed of antennas, how far the wipers spurt out water, speed of the power windows, wiper back and forth rate, lumens of the headlights, air pressure in the tires, or the precise second hand movement of the clock. (that would be the Corvette Club! LOL). We do good just to see if it adequately works given the several hundred items we have to check in 30 to 40 minutes.

Yes. I can attest to that having attended my 1st Grand National last year. I got tired just watching the inspection. Next time, I'd probably enter in the Touring division instead of Primary. I believe they are judged by the same criteria but Touring would allow a higher place prize: (ie 80 points = 2nd place in Primary, but 80 points = 1st place in Touring). I do have items that are not authentic (radiator overflow reservoir, radial tires, alternator, etc.). These changes are modern improvements for drivability which I don't plan to change but I do understand they result in deductions per the judging criteria. At any rate, I had a great time at the GN & recommend it to all!

Thats hysterical especially the corvette club --LOL !!!!!

Oh well, our Fleetwood is officially off the road for a short while now.

A good mate knows his stuff and is fixing the clock for me. He was camping about an hour from here, so first thing, I ran the clock over to him. (He lives 2 hours plus from here)

I just can't bring myself to drive a car with a hole in the dash.

Hmm, I could draw a clock on some cardboard for the interim I guess. At least it would tell time like the clock did .... :-) LOL

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…
