  1. I read somewhere those horn button separators are prone to melting and or hardening. My old one was hard and had melted a bit. Replacement from Bob's was soft, like a computer mouse pad and about as thick as a mouse pad also, whereas my old one had only about half that thickness due to the melting and hardening.
  2. My horn had a "hair trigger", slightest touch and she would honk. Replaced the horn button separator and all is well. Bob's sells them "1937-40 Horn button separator, sponge insulator all models with banjo steering wheels HS-370 $4.25"

  7. I read this topic and found that some have found a replacement seal by going to a bearing supplier and replacing seals by size. I tried to do this online, in trying to do so, I learned the OD of seal 130831, listed in my parts book and depicted above in danhar's post, is incorrect. The OD is listed as 29/32", it should be listed as 1 29/32". I didn't dig my seals out of storage, I just went off the dimensions in my parts book. Which are the same dimensions depicted above for seal 1308321. With the OD listed as 29/32" (and my lack of knowledge how number of parts needed are depict
