A 'D1ZF 15000' console clock in semi-working condition :s

By that I mean the hands move with the stem, and if I manually

rewind the main spring, the clock ticks down until the points close.

The points and coils are burned and will need fixing, or you could go for a quartz replacement. A friend fixed my coils and points then installed a capacitor bank to fire the coils so no direct energy from the battery is used. I call it my 'smoke proof' clock and it keeps perfect time as currently installed in the Grande.

Thanks. If I can't make it work it's always 5 o'clock somewhere. :D

Mine is set at 12:00, at least it has the right time twice a day! :dodgy:

The one in my car keeps really good time.

They are self adjusting you know. Every time

you reset the clock because it is too fast or slow

you adjust a cam to increasingly finer tolerance.

It is actually a pretty sophisticated and simplistic

clock for its day.
