Thanks Ianh, already bought.

I'm also looking for the badge 96GL that goes on the front wings, if someone has spare....

Does anyone have a picture of the bracket for the front plate? Mine is missing, the plate was screwed directly on the front bumber.
I'm looking for one but I have no idea how it looks like.
Thanks.

I bought the beautiful Keinzle (but broken) clock. Following a tutorial (sorry, I don't find the link) I tried to repair it. The thermical solder dissapear and must be replaced by a thermical component.

It needed also a bit of oil to start again.

You can see on the video how it works only with the charge of the spring.

I don't need to tell you how much pleasure to listen to the tic/tac again.

Excellent. What value thermal fuse did you use? I will ask the same question on YouTube unless you beat me to it and add the value to the clip before tomorrowish......

I read somewhere that the melting point of the solder coupling was 120 degrees C.
Maplins list a 128 degrees thermal fuse for 99p (though currently out of stock in the Inverness branch and on back order - they've taken an order and will post it to me FOC when stock received !).

There is a seller in Hong Kong selling these "10 Pcs Short Circuit Protection TF Aluminum Thermal Fuse 120C 250V 10A" for £2.92 including free postage...would they do the job (I have 4 broken clocks on the shelf).
Did I read somewhere that you need to use low temp solder to prevent the fuse from melting? If that is true i'm guessing you also need a soldering iron with temp control??

I thought I remembered John that you'd done this repair with one of these fuses? Low temp solder is hard to find. I've seen some on US eBay for use when making white metal models. This modelling obviously goes on the UK so someone might have some. The US eBay stuff had a minimum quantity that would repair more clocks than there are Saabs, Expansive to ship too.
If you have someone local that services/repairs electric ovens, they can likely supply. Solder used for soldering in the fuses can be normal solder but it will have to be done pretty quickly or the fuse will overheat and fail. Practise on a few small joints before you do the fuse.
