    My 86 K5 has the factory clock in the dash. The clock works but the pin that you pull out to set the clock seems to be partially stripped because you can adjust it so far before it stops.

    Any way to fix this?

    If it's anything like the GM trip odometers for the trucks, it uses a TINY gear that they made out of plastic. Guess what happens to those teeth? :(

    You could probably send it off to someone that specializes in gauge repair, but for the cost I'd get a digital radio that has a clock, get the black plastic gauge piece that is "blanked" for a clock, as well as the clear plastic that is not drilled for the clock adjust.

    Those things are pretty problematic anyways, surprised yours is still working!
