A couple easy reassembly Q's (I hope)

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a small box of parts from Merv Adkins of items that were missing on my '47 Lincoln when I got it.  I figured once I had the items assembly would become obvious and that was the case on all but two of the items (though perhaps I haven't stared at them long enough.)  

 

Item 1:  the clock-set cable -- the length of this cable really limits the places where it could go but I'm not seeing an opening that's a good fit (and I've scanned photos of lots of lincoln dashes without spotting this knob)

 

Item 2:  The horns -- the photos I've seen of others make it look like they might have mounted where the hood spring/bracket connects with the hood but the brackets on my horn seem to have the holes spaced differently so i'm ruling that out unless told otherwise.  The underside of my hood has some sort of spray on texture/insulation that may have filled previous bolt holes (if there were any) so if someone might be able to point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.

Ryan, 

 

the clock set cable goes thru a hole on the bottom side of the dash somewhere near and under the clock,  put the cable thru the hole and screw the round nut on to hold it in place.  Can't help you on your horns.

The horns mount on the hood to the two bolts of the hood mounting bracket toward the center of the car and with the horn flared opening toward the center and downward.. If you still need help I can send a photo.

 

Ok, this is what I thought, looks like I have the wrong brackets, I can make it work for now until I can locate a pair of the proper brackets.  Thanks for the help.

Ahh, thanks for the info I learned something today.  I have the wrong horns it seems (I have trumpets, and require seashell as my VIN starts with 7H1724.)  Something to add back onto my shopping list.
