I am in the process of converting my Malibu dash to a SS dash. I believe I have overcome all the major obstacles and I am getting ready to install the new SS dash ( which is actually a original SS dash from a 72). My question is this, I do not see what powers my clock, the pcb ribbon does not have any provisions for a clock connection other than for background lighting. There is a threaded post on the back of the clock but it has no way to hook up to the pcb. Is there a power connection for the clock on my new SS dash harness or is the PCB supposed to power it? OPGI says I have the correct PCB part number installed but could not answer my question. Any help would be greatly appreciated

PS... the WIRING HARNESS CONNECTOR PINOUT in DIFFERENT between the different types of clusters...

the images above are also larger than you can see.. move the slider bar back and forth... or open the images in a new window..


i don't see a clock insert in the pictures above...  i take it that it fits where the cavity is on the left side of the photo...   i will have to dig into the wiring diagrams tonight...
