5a and 6 - I bet several people on here have spares squirrelled away if you put a wanted ad up :D

Unfortunately I only have the earlier SE4/SE5 type.

The one in 8 ball works but not sure about the one from the coupe or my spare.

Not expecting you to take one out of 8 ball!

I think I shall look at putting a new mechanism into my clock - nothing like a bit of work on the car that I can do in the warm! Thanks for the offer though.

I have messed around with a few original 6a clocks to try and get them working.

I think I would just buy one of these (Other suppliers are available.)
