LOL ... that second-hand wiggle is _exactly_ what my father's 80 4k did.
I'm sure there are more than a few with the "shakes".
When I had the cluster out on my 87 this past weekend, I took a peek at
the clock. Everything seemed okay... nothing really burnt out or
anything. I didn't fuss with it much more than a peek for broken parts,
as I am not too interested in fixing it.
That spot though, makes a _great_ place to insert some sort of other
guage. Valentine 1 remote display hack? Alarm LED? Boost guage for MC
conversion? _sigh_... that last one is a ways off :).
Anyone have a good idea of something we can put in that spot? Who needs a
clock there anyway? :)
