Not exactly sure what a 56 Imperial Clock looks like but assuming that it looks like my 56 Dodge clock and it is electro-mechanical, you might want to read through my thread:

In the end, I had Clock Works re-do my clock:

Thank you. Well my clock worked when I first did this thing after hooking it up. What I found is the stupid '56 once again another only year they did it, used electric motors. I did not do my gauges and stuff I sent them all out to be redone. Worked for a number of years so I reckon me gonna play spider monkey again and pull thing out of my highly ridiculously over enginerred dash. I found out about filing the points down and the oiling with a needle point and do not use WD-40. To be honest I can not remember hearing tick-tick-tick from my clock. Might have to have it converted to a quartz movement, last resort.
