The clock works, it just loses time. Maybe a good cleaning will make it happy. Very Happy

Hey Jon- do you want to get rid of the old A/C fender vents when you put in the new ones?- I might be interested


You have first shot at them. I was going to put them on the Samba, but would rather you get them.


Thanks- put my name on them and we'll work something out

On the back of the white plastic cover there is a hole with 8 marks around it. Put a small flat head screwdriver into it. Turning it counterclockwise will speed the clock up. Every 8th of a turn it gains or loses about 5 minutes a day.

Record what time another clock says and set your clock to that exact time. Turn the screw an 8th turn counterclockwise and let the clock run. The next day when the first clock says what it said the day before, check your clock to see if it says the same thing. If not keep adjusting the screw. It'll take a long time but your clock will tell the exact time.

Your wife was complaining on the poker run about how her clock won't tell the right time. That should be the first thing that gets done when the square comes home.
