83 GTi Clocks Needed

Post by Lee83GTi » Thu Jul 25, 2013 9:37 pm

Hi,
I'm in need of a set of clocks for an 83 GTi with MFA and the 1/2 switch on the clocks for it....
Bit of a rarity but if I can't find any I'm going to have to repair the printed circuit on mine which has broken so it will save me loads of time if anyone has some...
Cheers,
Lee.

Mmm, good luck! Might want to have a crack at repairing yours. Shouldn't be too hard really. Soldering iron not too hot, bridge with wire...

It's very poorly but I have some wires and my soldering iron to hand, it's going to take a while though...

Pop a picture of the type of clock you are after as I have an old one in the shed that may do.
As far as I remember it is different to the one in my 87 but I can't remember exactly in what respect.
It came out a 84 GLI 1.8 Injection if that is any help.
A picture tells all.
Managed to find this one,

Sandy, the clock layout is the same but the lad needs one with the MFA.

Just wondered Ian as this one is completely different from my 1.6 and came out an injection model.
My temp gauge is at the top where the mpg thing is, my fuel gauge is between 5 & 7 o'clock not between 4 & 5.
Sorry Lee thought I was able to help.

Hi,
Many thanks the one in the pic is very similar but I have a switch sticking out to switch between 1/2 for the MFA,
otherwise it is the same layout.
I will attempt repairing mine when I have several hours to spare as it seems the only option and I indeed will take pics as I go
and post them on here along with whether or not I am successful...
Thanks for all the replies
Lee.
