Title: C3 Clocks
Post by Binnie on Jul 29th, 2011 at 4:44pm
As well as offering a C3 clock rebuild service I usually have fully reconditioned clocks in my inventory.  Right now I have clocks to fit the years '72 to '76 and '78 to '82. All units are $70 except the '82 (quartz unit) $90.  I will service your clock for $50 which includes shipping back to you. For more info go to http://corvettec3.ca/clock.htm

Binnie is definately the best clock overhaul person.  He reconditioned my clock probably 4 years ago and it has not missed a minute yet.

I was sucessful at bringing mine back to life but it's missing the knob. You have an extra knob I could buy?

Right now Charlie I am knobless but it will be only a matter of time and I will probably have one for you.

OK. I'll let the guys around here know and will mention your name the next time I pass out a business card as I'm sure someone will need your help.

Not really Dale. I dis luck out and only have to adjust it like 2 hours and since I lubed the gears, it turned fairly easy. I still have that ground problem and the battery drains so I unplug the battery at work and at night but when I do get it fixed and it's time to set the clock, I'll wait till the time is close to the clock and then adjust. Don't want to risk breaking the thing.

I didnt have a knob for my clock either.  I ordered mine from willcox and I guess I paid $13.99 but I see Ecklers has the knob for $10.99.
