  • Got my horn!

    Got a deal on a Spartan and have zero idea where to hit it with the battery. Two screws on the back I assume? One seems to make a adjustment and the other is just a screw. Going to work now but plan on testing in the morning. Seller says works well.

          Horn Removal
          by copgib
          While working on my Model A today I read in Les Andrews red book to take the only screw out of the back of the horn to disconnect the wires for removal. Well I tried to do this, but that screw just turns and will not come loose so I can pull the back off the horn. Any suggestions or will I have to start in the front and work my way to the back to take it apart? Any suggestions would be apprciated....

          Ahooga horn in trouble
          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. The last time I guess I didn't tighten the screw enough since it come off while I was out driving. Yes, you guessed it, the cover came off and the car behind my ran it over making it into a flat piece of metal. So, here we go....

          Horn not well
          by WMWS
          My horn has not been sounding too good lately so I took it off to check it out. I took it apart and everything looked good so put it back together. I tested it directly to the battery and it sounded great. But when I hooked it up to the wires and pushed the horn button it didn't sound so good. Like it wasn't getting enough juice. Do you think my problem is where the horn rod makes contact in the light...

          Model A horn and traffic
          by carolinamudwalker
          Have any of you heard how a model A horn sounds at 45-50 mph? I have had 2 close calls recently, One when a guy was coming into my lane and I had no place to go, the other in a parking lot with this jerk just backing out without looking and depending on a horn to warn him. Again I had no place to go because car behind me. I want a truckers air horn with a foot switch, any ideas?

          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 when it gets enough juice. Will a horn relay fix this? Yeah, I know it's a band aid approach.........

          Horn Testing
          by Beauford
          How can I test a original 6v horn out of the car? Also, my new horn rod extends a inch out of the steering box is that correct?

          Testing a Sparton Model B Horn
          by Tom Wesenberg
          I just tested a Sparton Model B horn I have, and it has great sound. It draws 8 amps at 6 volts.
          It looks identical to the Model A Sparton horn, except for the tapered shape of the motor cover....

          I have a repop ooga horn. It has one wire coming off of the motor. My Sparton has two wires. I know one of those 2 is a switch wire but why does the repop have only one??

          Voltage reduction for the Horn
          by 30Pickemup
          The pickup has the 12v system installed - and I'm getting ready to send in an order to my favorite parts supplier.
          I see two different "Horn Voltage" reducers - one is a resister that mounts inside the horn (Brattons) and the other is an externally frame mounted device from Snyders. Pricing is about the same.
          My concern is that while I like the internal solution.... I have...
