Has sky disappeared off the face of the earth?

Sent four Corsa clock movements to Bob with letter to see if units were repairable back in March. Had 'one' conversation with Bob right after I sent them and he said he would check the units out. Since then, I have left at least eight to ten messages over the past two months for his call back and have never heard from him again. Has anyone else had this type of experience with him? Any suggestions????

Instrument Services will repair clocks. If it isn't a Westclock.you can get a quartz kit from them off Ebay. If Westclock, send it back to them for the quartz mod installation.

I Have to agree with sky on the disconnect. I run a wire from the fuse block to the clock with inline fuse and switch. The switch is underneath the dash close to the steering column. I keep the battery connected to the entire car and switch off the clock so it does not keep time. When I need the clock I flip the switch and walla! It works.. Keeps years to the clock!! smiling smiley The clock never runs when the car is sitting.. Doesn't make sense to wear it out..

Quartz clock. No need to disconnect battery due to low draw on battery. Battery was hooked up and I left drivers door open all night. Clock and 3 interior LED lights run all night (about 7 hours. Old days with old style clock and incandescent bulbs, battery would have been dead. My battery was still above 12 volts.

The Clock Works is a good choice.

They repaired and upgraded the dash clock in the V8 Rampside about 3 years ago.

Contact Fred Bybee, Freds Classic Radios. He also does vintage auto clocks and is a Corvair guy. OEM or quartz movements.
He did a fantastic job on my OEM FC clock that's in my 62 Rampside.
