The horn that I bought for my T had a butchered bracket attached so I needed to make a bracket to supplement what was there.
In my "never throw anything useful away" bracket drawer I found a shift lever for a 1993 AOD Transmission. Hmmm, I think to myself....cut the shaft off and unscrew the ball joint and you've got what you need.
"But Don", I can hear some folks say, "that's sacrilege to put a 1993 part on a Model T".
But wait....it has a Ford script on it. So, I get a pass.
DON,I THINK HENRY WOULD APPROVE
Can't go wrong with Ford script.
My thoughts are with the confused guy that one day comes along behind you and restores the car.
The Scotsman in me applauds your frugality. Waste not, want not. A penny saved is a penny earned. blah, blah, blah...
Ha! N Maver....I hadn't thought of that.
I can see a posting here on the forum in the year 2057 with somebody insisting that it's a factory horn bracket. :-)
Just for the record I make the correct horn bracket for both the 22-25 and the 26-27. I don't make the thin sheet metal thing for 26-27 but the "real deal" with heavy cold thick metal and correct forming.
What is funny is that there is in fact a "mystery" horn bracket used for only a couple of weeks or so. The original 6437A bracket was the "butterfly" shaped one used on the magneto horn fastened to the firewall from 1915-1922, Then there was the mystery 6437B bracket used on the very first of the 1922 battery horns. Next was the 6437C bracket that was used from 1922-1925 and mounted the horn from one head bolt and one water inlet bolt and finally the 6437D bracket used to mount the horn to both water inlet bolts on the 26-27. I have seen 3 of the 6437B brackets and one was on a table at Chickasha and it was wrongly marked 1919. The other 2 were on horns. Bud Scudder (R.I.P.) had one mounted to a horn. Don't know where it went.
