Even if you could swap the guts out, it's likely to suffer the same Jeco problems as the S30Z ones.

Jeco made a number of automotive clocks for Japanese cars over the years. If you look on eBay under the name Jeco you'll see a few.

Chris

I have had sucess by swapping the guts from KA series Ford Laser (1981 or so)
It is a square clock a bit bigger than a box of matches.
The hands are a little shorter, but close enough for me.
