Clock Servicing or Conversion to Quartz through Clock Works

I had my 64 Coupe Deville Dash Clock serviced through Clock Works probably 6 to 8 years back and it has worked great except having to reset it from time to time.  In recent months it has sometimes stopped (a tap usually brings it back to life) and while it probably just needs cleaning and I do appreciate the original spring action electro mechanical workings, I decided to let Clock Works convert it to quartz and just sent it out for conversion yesterday. In doing so I obtained updated pricing and other information and thought I would share the details with everyone. .

Converting Dash Clock to Quartz
Per Clock Works: This movement should run 10 years without the need for periodic service and keep much more accurate time than the original type movement. Unlike some conversions, our installation will not alter the hands or face of the clock and will run off your car’s existing wiring. The original set stem remains functional.

- Cost:  $159.95 plus shipping + $13 return shipping in the US.
- Warranty: 2 years
- Turnaround time should not exceed a few days.
 
Servicing & Refurbishing the Original Dash Clock
- Cost:  The price to service the original movement is $59.95 with a possible $30 coil charge if the electrical coil is damaged and needs replacement. Add $13 return shipping in the US.
- Warranty 1 year

Converting Rear Seat 75 Series (Limo) Clock to Quartz
 - Cost: $169.95 to $189.95. Various clocks were used for this application so the actual
cost will depend upon which clock was used.  Add $13 return shipping in the US.
- Warranty: 2 years
- Turnaround time should not exceed a few days.


NOTE: Wisconsin residents must add 5.5% sales tax to the price of parts and service.

Additional Notes:

Two Brands brands: Borg and Westclox.
Our dash clocks were supplied by Borg and WestClox. Once removed you will see their name stamped on the back of the casing. 

To Remove:
Grip outer chrome rim firmly and rotate clock counter clockwise about 1/6 turn or to about the 10 o'clock position and pull straight out. (It usually takes a very firm grip.....no sissy gripping if you want to remove the clock!) Disconnect light and power connector being careful not to touch inside of power connector to metal. It is enclosed in a hard plastic shield and can just be laid down on the lip of the opening until ready to reinstall the clock, however, if you will have it unplugged for a length of time or moving wires around you might want to put electrical tape over the end.  

Cleaning:
There has been more detailed info posted on cleaning these clocks however, I have found a blast of compressed air to remove the dust and debris will often bring them back to life. The tuner lubricant cleaner that Radio Shack sells is also good to clean the inner components of the clock (and many other electrical/mechanical components).

Also See this Blog for discussion with pictures for removing and more:

Thanks Jason for the kind remarks on Craig's behalf.....

Craig is a brilliant guy and completely enjoyed his seminar on clocks, gauges and speedometers at the 2012 GN, however, Clock Works will rebuild/refurbish for $59 and warranty for a year and their turn around time is very fast.  With Craig you get quality craftsmanship from an expert that enjoys his hobby immensely so if not in a hurry and don't mind spending a little more might be a good alternative.

Speaking of Craig I do need to get his seminar uploaded to our new YouTube Channel.

Just a note Craig is a busy guy cause his work is perfect... Turn around time for the clock could be,a couple of weeks...but I assure you it is worth the wait, for his work....

You can also send you original clock out to Craig Wood at McVeys in Merriam Kansas. Craig is the Einstein of early Cadillacs and will rebuild the clock motor to original specs for around a 100. Plus shipping. Craig did my clock 3 years ago and it works perfectly..
You can reach Craig at 913.722.0707.

Upper A Arm Rubber Bumpers

Posted by Gene McIlroy on August 12, 2019 at 1:30pm 3 Comments

I have found a very good replacement part for the Upper A Arm Bumpers.  The top part is identical to the originals the bottom can be used as is or after a few minutes with a belt sander can be ground to the V shape as the originals were.  The replacement bumpers are for a 2001 to 2005 S10 Sanoma or Blazer.  Part number is on the box in the photos.  First photo is the box next to the box is the S10 part and an original.  Next photo shows my sanded down part next to an original.…
