  1. Hello all! I am extremely new to repairing classic cars and very eager to learn. I have a few mysteries that I can't quite solve with my car and was wondering if anyone could help. Here's a little backround about my project. After my high school graduation I purchased my dream car, 1968 Plymouth Sport Fury. It's a coupe, with a 318 V8, Edelbrock Manifold carb, and Flowmaster dual exhaust. Two previous owners, sat in California until recently, and still has the original black-plates. I've been trying to repair it well enough to pass a Massachusett's Auto Inspection. I've replaced the battery, the coil, the fuel pump, fuel filter, and all of the fuel line with it. My driver's side rear window came off of it's track and I've been working on removing the paneling to repair all of the mechanics in it. I also plan on jacking it up, dropping the gas tank to flush it, and then welding or bolting some sheet metal into the truck pan since I recently discovered a large rust-hole. I've never driven it or ran the car with gas in the gas tank. I have ran the car by attaching my fuel line into a gas-can with my dad just to see how it started up.The list of things to repair keeps building... I've started looking at my lights and other dash controls such as horns, windshield wipers, etc, since those all need to work in order to pass inspection. My horn does not work from the steering wheel. With further investigation I discover that it's actually connected to this toggle switch on the cab side of the fire wall. It isn't connected to anything on the dash, the toggle just hangs out of a hole by the floor panel on the passenger front side. I've switch it on while the key was turned and nothing sounded, I switched it on and hit the horn on the steering wheel and still nothing. There are two wires disconnected by the actual horn in the engine compartment, but they don't seem to be connected to anything. With the key turned I tried touching them to see if anything happened, and then tried touching them while having my mom lay on the horn and toggle. Nothing. Any advice? I don't really have anyone constantly at home that can take a look at these things so I need all the help I can get. I also have the Chrysler Factory Shop repair manual for it and take notes during episodes of Graveyard Cars on Motor Trend Network. I can take pictures and attach them if need be. Any suggestions are appreciated! Sincerely, A First-Time Car Owner with a Love for Mopar
