How to "fix" your horn!

    If you like the sound of your horn this post is not for you!
    Our family has owned an 84 Suburban since new and have had plenty of opportunities to use the horn. Growing up hearing a GETOUTATHAWAY horn makes the horns in these trucks sound a little light in the loafers soooo before the Suburban went to the Great Parking Lot, it donated its dual horns to the Little Carry!
    The horn on my Carry has power to it at all times and sounds when the ground is completed. Chevy is grounded all the time and sounds when power is sent to them .
    The GM horns are mounted directly to the plastic bumper to avoid grounding,Power is run to the horns and then a ground wire is attached to each horn and run back to the original spade fitting! Much better:eek:
    Pics to follow!

    Haha. Maybe you will have to put a locomotive horn on your Delica to put things into the proper perspective.

    best horn was a friend's dad's impala. it played la cucu racha (sp). which was hilarious to see him hit the horn when he was mad or someone cut him off lol

    On my 90 Carry its right behind the front bumper. !-10mm bolt on the outside center of bumper, 2- 10mm nuts located on the footwells about 5-6" away from lights and poof the bumper is off.
    There are two screws at the very bottom of bumper but I left them in place as a support when I was fartin around with the horns

    Thank you

    Found the horn was missing. Removed the bumper, found a plug that completed a circuit when the horn was pressed,
    Found a mounting position on the right side that seemed to work,

    Thanks Again!

    I had a set of truckers horns on another vehicle, a 69 Austin Mini. I had the compressor and small tank under the hood, the horns on the roof.
    Funny thing though, I lost 5 Kph every time I used them.
