My TR3 horns had been giving me a fit! Low tone worked great Hi tone didn't work. I had been using my Battery charger and some one suggested that was my problem. I hated to buy a new battery just to test stuff so I went to my independantly owned favorite Auto Supply and one of the guys gave me a 12 volt core battery. Charged up fine but didn't have enough poo to start a car. Still could not get the high tone to work. I kept adjusting the points but could not get the right combination. Finally got the low tone hooked up and it worked fine. Upon close inspection I discovered the problem. Points weren't closed enough. I cleaned them with fine sand paper closed them up and jumped out of my skin when it worked.

I now have working hi and lo tone horns, clean them up paint them and they are off the bench! Yea. Always feels good to get something accomplished.

Cheers, Tinkerman
