My question is: is it possible to adjust the slow/fast running of the clock or do I just continue adjusting it by a few mins every day. I have not yet even checked if this is possible, I thought I'd check with my fellow Saab enthusiasts first!

Pull the clock out the front and examine the back. Adjust the +/- accordingly. With a bit of trial and error you will get it right.

Tamsin: As for LRP - this stuff is not good. You might want to consider buying an additive which will be chemically more consistent than LRP.

19/11/2003 13:59:54   steve h   I have the same clock. It was broken when it came to me so i have had it in bits. It works by throwing a weighted and sprung arm back by a solenoid which is activated whenever the weighted arm winds back to touch a contact. As this makes the clock spring powered, it is sensitive to temperature, it will tend to run fast in the summer and slow in the winter. I correct mine when I get in the car. You can't expect quartz accuaracy from this sort of victorian technology.

Thanks all for your help.
