    What is it?

    My D24 has a metal one and is quite useful if your emergency brake does not hold well on a hill and you have fluid drive !

    Got the time?

    I found a NOS d24 clock on e-bay but it was priced over $500 dollars! I decided to remove the clock and install a quartz movement which cost less than ten dollars. A slight modification with a cut off to make room for the Quartz movement and put the clock back in the car. The double A battery should last a year or more and the clock is accurate with in a few seconds a year.

    Pedal problem!

    I spent along time trying to get the air out of my D24 brakes after installing a new wheel cylinder. My wife as helping bleed the brakes and after several frustrating hours, I discovered she was pumping up the CLUTCH pedal! Gotta love'em!
