Does anyone know a good place to buy a 6V Ooogah horn?
Ooogahs R Us ?
I would think eBad would be a good place to get one. But I just tried there and got one hundred eleven results for "vintage klaxon horn". Fully a hundred of them were modern crap! Less than a dozen looked anything like a vintage horn.
I hate most computer people. (Yes, I know a few that I know, like, and respect. But only a few.)
Unless you have some antique shops nearby (they are notoriously over-priced for such things), I still think eBad might be a good source. You just have to figure a way around their gamed search functions.
Go to ebay, www.ebay.com and type "6v Klaxon horn" in the search box and a few vintage horns will appear. They look to be going for $200.00 to 250.00, but if you are not in a hurry, you will be able to buy one for a more reasonable price when it comes up in the weeks to come. Jim Patrick
I posted a want ad here, in the classifieds section and got multiple replies for solid horns at reasonable prices.
They are easy to repair. Bought a new diaphragm from Fun Projects and followed the instructions that I found here. Ooogah, Ooogah.
If you want to show off an antique horn that's one thing I suppose but I bought a cheapo new 12 volt one and mounted it underneath in a relatively safe spot and it worked quite well. 6 volt system on the car. People expect Ah Ogga as opposed to the beep-beep of an original anyway.
Follow Jim's instructions but after typing "6v Klaxon Horn" go to the right upper and click on "advanced", then click on "sold" and you will see some have sold for less than $10 in the last few weeks.
Charlie....does your cheap 12V horn, hooked up to your 6V system make more of the whole "ah-ooga" sound?
