Horn Repair

My high horn is gasping in it's death throes. I found a place that sells overahul kits for Corvette Delco horns. Did Corvette use the same horns in the same year as the Camaro?

I already tried the Liquid Wrench trick. It worked for a short time but my guess is I am fighting internal corrosion.

Re: Horn Repair

I'm not sure about your question but if you have original horns and you want them rebuilt send them to Gary at "The Horn Works" in WI. They'll come back looking and performing as good as new. He's done a couple sets for me and they're perfect!

Re: Horn Repair

Well, the consideration here is $200+ vs. $36 overhaul kit. The steps in the link look fairly simple. I am just trying to determine apples to apples here.

Re: Horn Repair

I and several others here have used the "Vette" horns rebuild kit, and it was very easy and works well. The directions they give are easy to follow, and you don't need any special tools. A drill (to get the old rivets out) and a good bench vise and some c clamps to flatten the new rivets, a couple of razor blades to scrape old gaskets off. Simple.

Re: Horn Repair

Thanks Eric, that's what I was trying to determine. It looked pretty simple.

Re: Horn Repair

Thanks for posting the question Alan. I just ordered my horn rebuild kit from Zip. My horns were gasping as well. Hopefully this is a straighforward build and afterwards scare the bejeesus out of some wild life with the new sounding horns.
