i recently stumbled onto several of those 1 3/4 x 2 3/4" digital clocks used in several different models of vehicles in the mid 70's.
they have "Chronometer" in script on the face, plus a rocker type of switch to set the hour and minutes.
i know they worked when i pulled them way back in the mid 80's, but i don't know how to test them now.
i don't have any FSM's from the years these were used, so i can't look up the test procedure.
are these worth anything anyway ?
or just not worth messing with ?
TIA to all of you out there way smarter than me. bow

I'm guessing they just take 12V but could be wrong eek
I would look for a part number to verify the application, Mfr etc. Might even have the Voltage, current etc .listed on it.
Some pic's may help beer

I'm pretty sure my old 76 Charger SE had one in the middle of the dash assembly.

If that was directed to me pm me your email addy. I have one new one and was looking for it and poof found another nice used.

These are digi and I was actually looking to see if the crimped on metal frame would come off and another slide on for a different dash but ive no time to mess with them. Like most other parts its just hard to toss things that are not faulty.

i know what you mean about "tossing stuff" ! up
i know i will NEVER use any of it, but it's just SO hard to pitch it in the junk pile ! laugh2
as a side note, i figured out how to test those things, and all three of them work.
