Looking to buy a 1915-16 horn button for the 1915 brass ball magneto horn. It mounts on the side of the steering column with 2 screws. In good to excellent condition. Thanks!

John, I have one I had on the classifieds a few weeks ago. All Canadian cars had them, right up to the end of production. Whole ones with an undamaged phenolic body piece are hard to find.

The type you are looking for mounted on top of the steering column and looks very much like the ones still made today.

Mark, it's the same switch and metal housing. On the 1915 switch the mounting 'ears' are bent at right angles to the housing so they lay flat on the steering column. On the Canadian steering wheel nut mounting, the ears are not bent out.

There is a thin brass strip in the 15 switches which goes to one of the screws and from there is sandwiched between the column and the switch body to provide the ground.

Wow,thanks for all the fantastic help and the heads up on this!! That is a screaming deal for me in my opinion! Almost as good as when I bought the correct 1915 headlight switch out of a seller's junk box for a dollar!! Again, thanks to everyone for all the help!! Now my brass bell mag horn might actually honk again on the 1915 for the first time in Lord know how long, like maybe 80 or 90 years! I am so excited to hear it!! Thanks again, Rollie
