Title: 1948 chief horn
Post by: nourydr12 on May 20, 2018, 02:25:27 PM
Howdy-- Hoping someone may be able to post picture of of interior winding and lead connections etc. inside 1948 chief horn.. I realize this should be pretty straight forward, but my horn has been previously molested, for lack of a better term. one of the previous owners was inside it and there are wires broken and others I'm not sure should be there....  I tested ohms and the winding is good. Just need a picture of proper winding lead connection, which I imagine go to positive and negative posts, and leads to point contact.   Or a simple clarification as to wires and placement, I can understand directions...Any help appreciated
