Today I removed the dash pad and the remainder of the instruments from my dash to check.   I'm going to try to re-glue (construction adhesive?) a few places along the edge of the dash pad where it's loosened from the plastic backing, and also wanted to check the remaining instruments.

I put 12 volts on the clock on the bench, and found it to not be working.    Can anyone recommend a 'clock repairman' to repair these?   mine is the center mounted (small) clock between tach and speedo.

Clockworks repaired mine and it's been running like a clock ever since LOL. Great turn around time also. He was recommended to me by a friend who restores Mid-Year Corvettes and has had many repaired by them.

If the points are ok just spay the winder with light weight oil I have done this before. Seems that the problem is the lube gets dried out and the winder cant work, I have never had to redo the points, several good comments here at this link ....

Thanks for the comments and suggestions.   I also got some good tips from Kevin W..   I removed the cover and cleaned and lubed the mechanism iwth WD40, and the clock mechnanicals work fine (runs for 2.5 min per winding, but the solenoid that rewinds the spring isn't doing it's job.  May be bad points, or a bad connection in the works that I haven't found yet.

If I wanted to put a quartz mechanism in it, what is the best source?

 I found a two part YouTube video on repairing a 67 Camaro clock.
It was basic but gave a good idea of what causes the points to burn (low battery) and
how to replace a point face using a center pin from an RCA jack.

Has anyone bought a quartz kit for their Camaro and installed it themselves?  I purchased a quartz kit for my '69 Corvette many years ago.  putting it in wasn't a big deal.   Are kits for the Camaro available reasonably?
