Holden EH EJ Nasco / VDO clock gauge

Hi.. I was wondering if anyone out there has the fitting instructions for the FB to EH VDO Clock gauge.
They came with a fitting instruction sheet; and although the wiring seems pretty basic, I would just like to read their instructions. Also, as these were originally meant for the FB-EK, and therefore have a different facia setup than the EH, do people change the Fuel gauge to match. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

hello i had my vdo clock serviced by instrument maker he recommended to put a off/ on switch for the clock reason being it works by winding the spring up-you increase its the life by turning it off-when not using will increase its life span as is not working 24/7 i have followed his recommendation had clock 9 years no problems hope this helps also looks good in the eh warren

The clock spring is activated by what looks like a set of points that spring open when they close and complete the electrical circuit.
I got a non-working EH clock for a carton of Tooheys Draught many years ago.
My father-in-law was a tool maker and had a look at it.
The workings were gummed up with carbon flash from the points so he washed it out with some thinners.
The main spindle runs in a small bronze bush which had some wear in it, so he rotated the bush 180 degrees so the wear was at the top. He lubricated it some fine oil and it worked for years until I sold the car.

Old is good.

I have always wondered how many other dials/devices/things behind a dash make a regular spark. I feel young for once :)
