How do you test a horn.

I have the two horn setup on my 68, one horn has the tab broken off. I want to test both to see if thay are good. can you just apply 12 volts to the tab and should the horn work?

There should be a spade lug that the wire goes to on the horn, that gets the pos connection and then the bracket gets ground.

If you apply the 12 volts should the horn blow as normal?
