  • Electrical: 1934 horns rebuildable?

    Anyone have a source for rebuilding a 1934 Commander 6 volt horn?

    If you have a local shop that specializes in auto electrics they should be able to get it working. Unless the innards are seriously trashed they usually just need cleaned and adjusted.
    As today's vehicles get more and more computerized many of the auto electric shops are disappearing.
    Here's a video that will give you an idea what's involved, and perhaps encourage you to try it yourself.
    The first six minutes is tedious and can be skipped.

      I have had very good luck getting horns alive again. If it has a removable cap (1934 should) you can clean the points directly. Unless the coils are bad or the diaphragm is rusted out it should come back.

        Thanks to both who responded. Horn is up and running again.
