Fixing the dash clock

So I finally got all my gauges working. The only problem I have now is that my clock only works when the ignition is ON otherwise it just sits there dead and reads whatever time it was when I took the key out. I have read of a few people making "jumper" lines back on the printed circuit. My clock does WORK, but just getting it to work all the time again will be the trick.

Any thoughts?

The pink wire to the connector behind the printed circuit should feed the clock. That's hot all times, fed through the 20 amp 'dome' fuse under the dash.

If it doesn't rain, I'll go out and take a look at it today. Maybe take a few pictures.
