    I had my original clock converted to Quartz years ago. I did the R&R about the same as Twisted stated except I scooted under the dash to tighten down the connections (Large hands will make it more difficult). The quartz clock is still keeping accurate time 25+ yrs later. Partly due to leaving the battery disconnected when the car is not being used for extended periods.

    I had mine upgraded to quartz about 20 years ago and it is still working perfectly and keeps perfect time. I sent my original out to a gauge place to be upgraded and it was pretty affordable if I remember it was the place below. I would find a good gauge place that upgrades yours instead of buying after market...Maybe Gauge Marks who is a sponsor does it.

    Very useful information re the clocks and gauges site. If I had known about them earlier, I would certainly have used them for the clock. I will use them or Gauge Marks for any other gauge work needed. Thank you.
