  • Bull Horn Picture

    For those not familure with a bull horn, here's a picture of one I bought a year ago at a swap meet. I tested it on Pat's power supply, but it doesn't work. The amp meter shows a small amount of current flow on 6 and on 12 volts, so I suspect the contacts are corroded. Tomorrow I'll see if I can get it apart and clean the contacts, and try it again. To operate these you just pull the lever down, and the horn will make the sound of a bull calling for it's cow.

          No, the rivets would need to be drilled out to remove the cover, so I just set it aside for now.

          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...

          Spartan Horn. What is this?
          by Big guy
          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.
          What is this thing?...

          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?

          help on 12 v horn winding
          by Ken Parker
          Need input from electrical gurus.
          I have everything ready to rewind a horn motor field coils to make it a 12 volt horn . Horn frame is stripped of old 20 ga. wire and frame cleaned. Have about 1000 ft of 24 ga coated wire. The 20 ga wire that came off the coils were 20.5 ft long and had 23 or 25 coils. Reading info the new 24 ga wire should be twice that long and have about twice the number...

          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 12 volt conversion
          by Curly
          I have a nice original horn I’d like to have updated to 12 volt. I’d be more comfortable sending it to someone with a good reputation. Any recommendation?...
