    Continuing, I watched the video on the kit manufacturers website and it was very helpful.

    Quartz Conversion Kit, Car Clock Repair - Instrument Services Inc.

    I pressed on the spring steel retaining ‘nuts’ using a 3/16” nut driver, and am painting the hour and minute hands.
    I also need to sand the inside of the cover to ensure proper grounding.

    I need to finish painting the hands, get it reassembled, tested and close it all up.

    Finished the 68 clock for Elwood.
    Works as I ran it overnight.

    in starting to disassemble the clock for Shamu (69 Fury III vert), the electrical connections don’t match. I will call Instrument Services, Inc. tomorrow to discuss a solution.
