I recently purchased a complete 1915 USA bulb horn set-up from a forum member. Thank you to all who kindly answered my "want-ad" in the MTFCA classifieds! You are all much appreciated!
I am wondering how the set-up would differ attached to the steering column on a Canadian 1915 T, instead of where it would normally go on the body of the car, near the false door area, on the US made 1915 open cars. Would the bulb/hose support bracket have been the same? Is there any little details that make the Canadian set-up unique? Any photos, info, and details regarding installing a 1915 bulb horn in a Canadian 1915 as factory correct as possible, would be much appreciated! Thanks everyone in advance!
Note*** I'm still working on making my car as "1915 correct" as possible, but in the meantime, I'm enjoying driving it as much as possible Our top is actually for a '14, as I wanted the airflow for our humid, hot summer touring In the meantime, here's some pics to enjoy!
Canada made both LHD & RHD cars, so apart from the obvious 4 doors, 23" wheels all round, from 1913 onwards the horn bulb mounts on the steering column.
Although this photo is from a late 1913, the method and bracket is the same until the introduction of the electric horn.
Here's a brand new Canadian 1915 touring.
Thanks guys! Very interesting! Unless I'm mistaken, it appears in Royce's photo, that the clamp goes all the way around the column, in two pieces similar to David's photo, but underneath.
Thanks David, and Royce!
This is a Canadian '14 that was involved in a head on collision with another, larger car. Notice the horn bulb is also configured so the bulb is under the column.
You are correct Royce, below from the factory. Not one of Canada's better ideas.Most are moved to clear the doorway & the legs etc.
What a wreck!
