Hmm, I have both dashes. If you don't get an answer tonight I can try to help you with this tomorrow afternoon. I am off to bed. It's been a weekend of overtime and I can hardly stay awake!

thanks, a measurement of the diamater of both should solve it.
the other thing that suprized me was ther seems to be no light in the clock.
i should have taken a pic of the back of it (whole Cluster)

If I understand your question right, this should answer it. If this is not right, just holler!

The top cluster is a Sport Deluxe unit, bottom is Nova SS.

that helps alot. what i was thinking of doing was buying a chevy 2 clock and taking the face off mine and putting it on the nova clock, i will have to take mine apart and measure the diameter
of the "black" face of mine and measure the face of the Chevy 2 one.
they look similar but the chevy 2 one have the adjuster sticking through the face and then through the clear plastic and mine the adjuster stciks through the grey plastic face.
do you have the chevy 2 clock ??

No, I'm afraid I don't. I got the cluster without it.

Thanks, I'm kinda curious too.

My gut feeling is they are the same diameter.

I am thinking they just pull off but I've never tried. I think it's a "press" fit. I guess just turning them first to see if they unthread may be better.

And maybe the repro sellers will know.

i know the hour and second hand are splined onto the shaft (there is one shaft inside the other)
and hopefully the knob on top is screwed on. perhaps Bowtie will let me try and take it off..

 I have been busy with other projects, i know i can remove the hands and put them and the face

plate on a nova clock. the NOS one i picked up was not working either.

i figure after the last show on the 30th of sept i will remove my cluster and work on the clock and amp gauge.\
