Re: Clocks

Well i do know that you have to get the inside piece moving back and
forth. I have 2 SB's and my clocks always works on them 24/7 and they
both are dead on time and never get slow or anything so I guess it
depends of your clock has rust in it or something?

What I ment by intermitenly touch the hot wire on & off to get it kick
started just take it of and on 2 -3 times for every second. Since taking
the back off of the clock most likely wont hurt it (Mine anyway) just
take the two screws off of the back of the clock, see &  realize what
your trying to get moving and believe me you see the inside of this thing
and you will know exactly what im talking about

Hope you all have fun getting your clocks working. Mine been on for 3-4
weeks now after driving over 1500mi

YEAH I drove over 1500 miles since i put me in a different spedo with a
working odometer. 3-4 weeks ago. Makes you wonder how many miles you
really drive when that thing isnt working.
