Sparton Bugle Chime 3 Trumpet Horn Technical Info

Recommended Posts

The attached service manual and technical articles were sent to me by Fred Weisberger of the Hawaii region.  He has an operating Sparton Bugle horn and over the years has collected a treasure trove of repair and maintenance information.  He quite nicely sent me copies of the documents as I recently acquired two horns with the idea of taking the best components from each to make one that works.   He also asked me to scan the materials and post them in the Technical Forum for the benefit of anyone interested in these fascinating vintage horns.  Many thanks and a tip of the car-guy hat to Fred!

 John C. 

First off let me welcome you to the forum. Secondly Thank You for posting the information on the forum.  Your post might receive more views and appreciation on the AACA General forum farther up as these horns were used on all manner of cars and not just Classics. 

 I just want to warn you as a newbie that some of the members that view these forums can be rather heartless and try not to let them discourage you.

I certainly appreciate the posting of all this technical information.

John C. ....have you become the expert in making these horns functional?  If so, are you interested in tackling another project?

I have a 3 trumpet Bugle and a 4 trumpet Repealer that I need repaired.

Anyone know where to purchase a suitable replacement switch for a Sparton Chime horn like the one shown in these instructions?
