Clock Delete Insert-37 120

I just wanted to share an issue those may find when they use the clock delete part. I installed mine with only getting the exterior surfaces clean and it looked great. A short time later I noticed yellow dust sticking to the inside of the domed glass. I carefully bent back the trim edges in the 4 quadrants around the base plate and opened it up. By the time I had it opened it looked like an hourglass had ruptured inside. It was the glue used back in original assembly, it had crystalized and started flaking off. Careful scrapping with a sharp chisel removed the remainder of the old adhesive. A good cleaning got it all ready for reassembly. I then cut a gasket ring out of 1/8th inch stock and put that in after setting the glass in first so it rests between the glass and backing plate where the old adhesive once was, carefully re-crimped the quadrant tangs and it is now clean and the previous rattle due to the adhesive failing is gone and it sits proudly in the glovebox hole.

Apparently it's this.

This site is very helpful for such things

'55 Clipper Deluxe. Engine is stuck-ish.

I think the picture above may be a 1938 clock delete. I believe the 1937 120 does not have the horizontal lines. Sorry for the low quality pic. I have them at my shop and not in front of me to take a better picture. although it does not show the lines.

1936 and 1937 120's Are what we like best. But we also like all other Packards too.

Yep, that's it. I got the car with just an empty hole and did not want the hassle of a clock so I got this instead. I really like the look, especially now that it is not full of dust!

Probably is but all my prewar Packards had clocks and so did all those in NorCal when I used to be active in it so never saw one before.
