The centerline of those 6 large holes would be correctly spaced for 2-hour intervals, and it looks like there are small bolt holes near the edge that appear to be symmetrically aligned to the center of the large holes.

Go hard!
I can see a bunch of gearheads that would proudly display clocks like that on the walls of thier garage or rumpus room ... if they can get it approved by the war dept.

My ex-boss started a collection of engine parts that had suffered "catastrophic failures" and had them cleaned up, bronzed, and mounted on oak plaques as "trophys" ... which he gave to staff as awards for years of service etc. Neat idea, I thought.

When I first started out in parts, a fellow partsman and I had come up with the idea to paint a dipstick with gold rattle-can paint. We presented it as "The Golden Dipstick" to the mechanic of the month in our repair shop.

WakBordr7387 I found this thing under our barn when we moved into our house. Its been sitting out back for at least 2 years since we moved here. It was a little bit rusty, but I polished it up all purdy and mated it with a clock. This one is definitly going on ebay. Just because owning a clock that says ford on it would upset the chevy gods.

I have a couple more ideas for some really cool stuff next. One of them is gonna be a clock, that will be more of an old classic look that ya'll might like better. The other is gonna be a motorized wall decoration.

BooWFO Cool I like it.

Camarofiend73 That is sweeet! I was thinking about doing the same thing with a Top Fuel clutch disc that was signed by Cory Mac back in '98.

WakBordr7387 Thanks guys, yeah yeah sorry about the mixup it is a flexplate. It just seems everywhere I go someone calls it the flywheel. oh well, It might actually be better to get a "real" flywheel and polish it up and turn it into a clock. I have another flexplate like it that isnt cracked that I probably wont use for the engine that I could turn into another clock. Ya'll think I should sell one on ebay? And because its so heavy like poncho said, I haven't hung up it yet because I can't find a place for it.
Thanks guys

Hey hey! I think I have an old timing chain and gears in the garage. Take a clock like WakBordr7387 did, put it in the camshaft gear, let the crank gear hang in the chain below it like a pendulum... off to see if I can find them.

poncho62 You are gonna need more than a regular anchor to hang it on the wall.......probably weights 10 pounds

MARTINSR Very cool, that is a "flex plate", not a "flywheel" which is from a manual trans though. Some burnt and cracked aluminum flywheel would be really cool.

I had a fool wheel cover and a clock I was going to "mate" but never got around to it.

Those clocks could be put in all kinds of things.
