      I came across a mess like that when I was testing horns for Shirley at Brent's this spring.

      I also learned you install the screen before you paint the horn.
      Also have an air hose handy when you spray paint the screen, so you can blow open any holes that fill with paint.

        Actually I tried to put an emoji at the end of the comment but it didn’t show up. I’ll try again.

            Horn Goes Ahooga When Engine Running Just Oogh When Engine Off
            by leo
            OK, not a show stopper question but just a minor annoyance. I suspect a poor ground, probably too much paint in places where it should not be because all the wiring was replaced and the horn blows fine...
