Horn works

After trying all the suggestions on the BBS on how to get my Zuk's horn working again I took the horn out and looked at it. Cleaning the contacts behind the horn button didn't help. I checked and was getting power to the horn. Looked at horn and noted little Torx screw, Figured that this was an adjustment. Screwed it out and screwed it in. Screwed it out pushed horn button and it worked. Tone was a little low, screwed it in tone pitched higher. Works great now. I figure the diaphram inside became stuck and wouldn't vibrate. If you try it, you've got to remove the horn to get to the Torx screw. Don't even try it with a Phillips or straight screwdriver. Grandkid's all like Poppa's BEEP, BEEP horn.......

Re: Horn works

I've seen several of these do that , wonder if the last owners just didn't use the horn or something . How you like the constant power to the horn , with the ground switched through the button ?

Re: Horn works

Never knew a horn to work with the switch off (maybe my old 1951 Henry J did) . Now that I finally got mine to work it works both ways, switch off - switch on...

Re: Horn works

I never knew that horns were adjustable like that.
