It's EASY. Get a 1N4001 to 1N4004 diode from Radio Shack. Connect it across  
the coil terminals inside the clock. Make sure the end with the silver band 
goes  to the positive side. 
The purpose is NOT to conduct in the normal direction, but to quench the  
back EMF when the contacts open.

My 80s  vintage Tech Guide does not contain these instructions; are they  in  
the newer versions of the Tech Guide? Can someone supply the  instructions  
or off line?
