Subject: Re: 84 westy - how to stop clock battery drain?
Content-type: text/plain; charset="US-ASCII"
The clock in my 84 westy worked perfectly, cold or warm weather-the only
time I had to adjust it was for Daylight Savings 2 times a year.
Soooooooo, I took it out to install a vw tach! Now I have to look at my
watch which I try not to wear when on westy time. BTW, I am keeping the
clock, in case I decide time is more important than money?
