Looking for some things - 74 450SEL

Hi, I've now been enjoying my Benz for about 4 months now but I'd like to fix the little annoying things (and some that are just plain odd) First, the odometer doesn't work, the speedometer does but neither the trip odometer or the full odometer will work. The clock hands move occasionally, usually when it's a zillion degrees in the car, I can hear the clock tick when I shut the car off. I'm thinking maybe 30 years of gunk which might be cleaned off with some alcohol? I also have a problem with the door locks not working all the time. I'm pretty sure it's a vacumn leak. What's the most effective method for finding these?
