1968 Clock Fuse

Is the clock powered by the same fuse that powers the door courtesy lights? Anything else on the courtesy light fuse?

Thanks

Dave

Well looking at 67 Ford shop manual, (everyone should own), clock "feed wire" # 22 (blue w/black stripe) shown on another schematic page shows # 22 continuing into DOME 7.5 amp fuse.
So answer is YES...

If you borrow a tool more than twice, you need to own it You get what you pay for!

On 1968 the clock is powered thru the 7.5A DOME fuse. This fuse also powers the dome light, interior courtesy light(s),under dash lights, glove box light, and trunk light via circuit 54 (GRN/YEL). At the instrument cluster connector the circuit becomes 22 BLU/BLK for the clock.

No problem. I actually discovered that a couple of hours ago. Thanks

Dave you can see the DOME fuse for the clock in the diagram that I just posted at your map lights thread. The circuit 22 BLU/BLK connects to the circuit 54 GRN/YEL at the connector shown.

Paul, Thanks so much the link to the Average Joe wiring and vacuum diagrams are great. I book mark that page and I will save each diagram to my tech pictures folder. Hopefully, I can use these instead of having to post. But no guarantees!

Is the issue the clock doesn't work?
If so - clock has a point (just like the dist.) that gets burned or fouled when the battery runs low...


Two options - replace the point which has to be custom-fixed - not as easy as swapping point on a dizzy
OR
Buy a new one (not too expensive). The new quartz replacements are not sensitive to low battery voltage

Dave if you need any more wiring help let me know. My 1968 coupe is a hanger queen and is just a rolling shell (and has been for some time) and I have all the wiring harnesses out of the car. My car is fairly plain jane but came with the RPO under hood, under dash, glove box, and trunk lights (but no consoles).

When I recently bought the car, I knew the courtesy lights did not work, nor the clock. The PO told me it would immediately blow a fuse. So, I have the instrument cluster out and yesterday, and the correct wire was on the clock. So, I put 12 volts to it and big sparks! So, when I was told the clock was on the same fuse as the courtesy lights etc. I put in a new fuse and all the lights are working now. Opened up the clock and plastic pieces are broken off. Ordered (among other things) a new clock last night. Mine was beyond repair.

Thanks.

Dave
