coupe clock

Post by pjkpjk » Sun Jun 18, 2017 7:44 pm

Hi, I`ve recently acquired Geoff Coopers rally`d straight six Coupe.Two queries if any one could help? Firstly the clutch pedal seems extremely heavy,and slow to engage/disengage? is this normal?the gearbox works well,and it can be driven, but just doesn't seem right.Secondly the dash is missing an instrument, between the fuel guage,and ammeter.Is this a clock? if so are they available,and where should I look for one? thanks Peter

Yes the clock is between the fuel and ammeter gauges - quite where you can get one I don't know - they are larger than normal. As to the clutch I have just put a new one in my Coupe and it is heavy - more noticeable as it was the pressure plate that had failed and it was weaker than norm. I cannot say mine is slow to operate though - perhaps your slave cyl needs some lubrication - try a spray of silicone oil.

Pretty sure it's usually a smiths item

Is the clock you are after the slightly larger than the other games one as per this photo.

If so I may have one, I'll have to check it works.

I'm fairly sure the one in that Rod and the spare I have are both smiths, but the one in 8 ball is KIEZLE.

I thought 8ball had a Smiths, or possibly Jaeger but not Kienzle? Will check next weekend.

I think it's a Smiths in HBL 725G also (car currently at club storage). HBL has a Charge / Discharge meter (amps?) rather than a volt meter whose accuracy has improved greatly since I removed the radio speaker.

Ive only ever seen Smiths - but anything could be fitted over such a long period of time

This is the spare clock I have.

I've connected it up and it ticks, I've left it connected to see if it keeps time.

I remember looking at it to check the make when I first got Rat Rod, because Rat Rod didn't have one. Although I have no recollection how I ended up with 2.
