You can insert an timestamp with HH:MM by typing "C-u C-c !". 

Here is a *very simple* function I use to insert a clock line at point:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
    (defun my-org-insert-old-clock ()
      "Insert a clock line interactively at point."
      (open-line 1)
      (insert "CLOCK: ")
      (org-time-stamp-inactive t)
      (insert "--")
      (org-time-stamp-inactive t)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

You can change a time stamp by using Shift and the arrow keys. S-left
and S-right move forward and backward by day. S-up and S-down change
individual elements of the clock (hour, minutes, etc.).

See manual section 8.2: "Creating timestamps."

Are your timestamps in a :LOGBOOK: drawer? If so, you can turn on the
inclusion of drawers in export by adding the following line to the top
of your file:

#+OPTIONS: d:t

Or you can set org-export-with-drawers to t.

Hope this helps.
