  • Testing a Sparton Model B Horn

    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.

    It looks to be the same but I think that a model A cover won't fit on the one I have for some reason, the screws line up differently as I remember.

      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....

      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.

      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?

      Need help with horn
      by saxman657
      I have a 28 Tudor that was refurbished by my wife's uncle, now since passed, so I don't know much of the history of this car. I was trying to clean/lube the horn per Les Andrew's book, but it looks like the unit is sealed and can't get it completely apart per the book. Could this be some kind of after market horn? I've attached pictures. If it is an aftermarket, how do you lube -- or does a horn...

      I have what I think is an aftermarket horn. It only has one screw in the cover and that is to take the cover off. The adjustment is underneath the cover. I was going to clean up the motor and replace the brushes but there does not seem to be any way to get it apart. I think I have heard that some of the repros are not rebuildable. Is that the case?

      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...

      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....
