Here is the whistle:
It looks large, but if I hold it to the pipe it sounds OK.
The problem is that if the whistle goes to the center of the car it will bounce on the pumpkin, so I would need to make a bracket for it-maybe a leather strap to hold it in place. Then you can see the flap that needs to close in order to make the whistle blow.
The flap needs to be lifted up and forward to close. However, the spring gets in the way of the wire going to the pedal in the front of the car, so somehow I need to use a pulley system to redirect the wire.
Suggestions would be appreciated or examples if anyone else has this type of a whistle mounted on their T. Thank you.
Can you weld a washer(s) to the pipe to run the cable through to act as a guide?
I used a piece of 1/4" air line that's used on air brakes with a cable inside.
You can route it pretty well except no sharp corners.
Lang's has a bunch of whistles and components, but they are expensive:
I would call Steve Lang and ask him how to install what you have. You might get by with just getting a control valve and the hook up that goes with it.
If you are interested I have a whistle I will sell for $100. I took it off a car that I am rebuilding. It has the control valve with it and is still hooked to the exhaust pipe and muffler.
The whistle I have is smaller than yours and is rigged so that it points straight back. It presents no interference problems with the rear end or suspension. I believe this whistle is identical to the one Lang's has listed as part number AER-C for $222.95.
Did you get my PM?
