Actually, this is one of the little things that needs fixing on mine also. One of these days when I have some spare time I need to get a handfull of bulbs, some tuner wash and a couple capacitors, pull the cluster and take care of everything back there. I suspect the clock has been replaced on mine before I bought it. The clock hands are still a bit orange, all the other hands are pretty much yellow.
