Anyone been successful repairing their wind-up clock? Wind it up but no tic-toc. It doesn't seem to be overwound and it looks clean. After what I just spent having my speedo serviced, it sure would be nice if there was a diy remedy for this.

Thanks in advance,
Jay

There was a thread on spring wound clock repair / cleaning not too long ago...trying to find it. You can do a google search with entries like, "clock repair, chevytalk" and get some good information that way. I usually disassemble to the point where the workings are easily accessed, spray liberally with CRC BrakleenĀ®, then spray lightly with PB BlasterĀ®. That will sometimes get things moving again.

Funny you say that. I actually got anxious and used PB Blaster on it and pretty much started right up. We'll see how it works long term. Thanks!

I was going to suggest W-D40 which worked well on two spare clocks I have for the 52.

WD40 worked well on my 51 clock and also worked well on an outside pool timer clock

I used Kroil about 4-5 years ago and the clock's still working.

I took mine to a local jeweler who also repaired clocks. Runs like new.
