    Positive 12 volts to the terminal, negative to the case.

      You might throw a low amp in line fuse between the 12v and the clock terminal just to be on the safe side.

      If you haven't already done it, you will probably have to clean it, oil it, and file the points. There was an excellent thread on this a while back.

        These were not electric clocks. They were electrically wound clocks. When the spring wound down, a set of points would close. This would happen every five minutes or so. An electric pulse would rewind the spring.

            Been 32 years since I had a 62 Lark.

            I'm just about to post what I think are my recollections and (BIG lightbulb going off) keep my mouth shut and let folks who know what they're talking about respond.[|)]
