  1. I had a 33 years ago and I think the wings went straight up, not sloped back like yours. I think yours may be a '35.
  2. I'm not familiar with that particular clock. It would help if you could email me a picture of it so that I could see what we are dealing with. Bob.
  3. I am a retired professional Clockmaker and now limit my work to antique automobile clocks. If you have a clock you need repaired or just have a question you can contact me at bobspil@comcast.net Bob
  4. You would be better off buying another clock.

  7. I am a retired Clockmaker. If your clock is made by Borg, which it probably is, you need to push in on the knob when setting the time.
  8. I am a retired Clockmaker and now deal strictly in antique car clocks. Here is a very nice 1932 Buick 8 day clock. I have serviced the movement and it is in good running condition. The face is excellent, the hands repainted and the lens is blemish free. The bezel (trim ring) could stand to be replated for show. It is easy to remove the bezel, should you desire to replate it, it just snaps off and on. The knob in the center of the back to set the time is not original. The price is $550, which includes free shipping in the U. S. If you have any questions about this clock, or any other clock questions in general, you can contact me at bobspil@Comcast.net
  9. A friend of mine had a very similar problem many years ago. Turned out to be water in the gas tank plugging up the sock filter in the tank. When you stop, the water drains back off the sock. When you start up again, the water builds back up, and there you go again. He cut the sock off and that ended the problem.
  10. more than likely the "action" of the points needs adjusting.( i own a clock repair business)
  11. I've used the spray on belt dressing with success on a squeling belt. It will last a limited time.
  12. I have new Chevy clock face decals for 1931-1936 AND '39. Contact me at bobspil@comcast.net for more info and prices.
  13. New glass clock lens for a 1938 Chevy clock. High quality, made using the latest equiptment. $30 delivered. Note: The '37 lens that is commercially available will fit a '38 clock, but the style of the numbers is not correct for a '38. Contact me at bobspil@comcast.net
  14. New face decal for the 35 and 36 chevy glove box clock. $20 delivered. Contact me at bobspil@comcast.net
  15. I am a retired Clockmaker. Your problem is more than likely the action of the points is out of adjustment. A common problem.
