  • Spartan Horn. What is this?

    My horn wouldn't work. Gotta have a horn, it's part of the driving experience. So I removed the cover and cleaned and oiled things up. I was able to get intermittent sound but not when I replaced the cover. I searched posts and read some Andrews articles. This thing was in the way and made it difficult to install the cover so I removed it and the horn works like a champ.

    It is a basic relay to provide the horn with a nonfluctuating power to perform evenly. Maybe the relay went bad? A modern add on

        by Tudor31
        Somebody called himself a knucklehead. Well. here is another one. I have had problems with the horn on my 31 Tudor and have been taking the back cover of multiple times.

        Polarity for horn
        by wrndln
        Is there a correct electrical polarity for a model A horn. In other words, is there any damage to a horn connecting it in either way.

        Sparton Horn of Unknown Origin???
        by Leo
        This is a Sparton I believe, it stands 13 inches high, the opening of the bell is 4 inches and the ID tag (not readable) is on the horn projector and not the cover, see photos.

        Sparton Horn Issues
        by Roadster Rich
        I drive my roadster during the winter in FL. It is always in a workshop with two dehumidifiers running so I am not getting any rust or mildew. I noticed last winter that the horn was sounding a little sick, but did no investigation. Now I find that when I push the horn button it starts to sound a little like the horn but pretty weak, and only for about 2 seconds. If you hold the button on, it just...
