Cleaning clocks ?

Well it seems like the odo and speedo clocks are not meant to be disassembled for any reason, i really want to clean the dust from the inside, i tried blowing hard from the lamp hole and it only made it worse when it condensed and dried and left water marks. So please pass down to me the long hidden secret of the disassembly.

Your humble apprentice HWB

Re: Cleaning clocks ?

The bezel can be very carefully pried off by working round and round with a suitable tool. I've done a few with no issues

What kind of tool ? A small flathead screwdriver works ? And how do you reassemble it ? Needs to be hammered back in shape i reckon

Re: Cleaning clocks ?

a very blunt flat screw driver so it does not cut the edges of the bezel and I used a piece of hardwood the roll the bezel edge over when reassembling.
good idea to practice on an old damaged gauge first to get the Technik right, good time to paint the needle too.
