NOS 1950s? Chevrolet Horn Ring? #506309

Recommended Posts

I bought a box with a few of these in them. Here's the info: Group # 2.322  Part Number: 506309. Part Description: Plate. 

 

Any ideas what this is for an the application? 

Thanks, Shawn

Did you try running it through the GM parts WIKI on line?  IF it's not on there you are going to need some seriously good parts books to research it further.

Yes - thanks for the reference to the Wiki - I hadn't found that site before.  Unfortunately it didn't come up.  I know there are some serious Chevy geniuses here at the site and I have confidence someone will know :)

I've been able to narrow it down that the 2.322 looks like to be for a Generator, but still looking.

Here is a link to the site for anyone else that needs it.   http://www.gmpartswiki.com/query

 

 

If it's not on there,  as I said,  you are going to need to do some serious number researching using a crazy amount of books.  It could even be big truck or Ih if it's a Delco number and not in a GM box.  I found parts like this are easier to toss than ID.  Hours of research will if you are lucky yield an application no one is looking for.  Part of the reason I got out of parts.  Too much time searching through piles of trash that aren't identifiable only to find on the rare occasion you actually did ID it , it fit something no one needed. 

Good luck.

It must be for a GM product other than Chev, the reason being Group #2.322  does not appear in the extensive Chevrolet (1929 - 1957) part books which are found at the "Old Online Chevy Manuals" web site.

Group is 2.822, and it is a Horn Contact Plate for 1941-1942 Pontiac with flexible steering wheel.

The GMpartswiki site is good for Chevy, not so much for early B-O-P and Cadillac.

It's actually pretty good for Oldsmobile stuff.   Not so much the others.  That's why I bought probably over 15,000 in parts book when I was doing parts now collecting dust on the shelves.  Thankfully got out of that as way too much time chasing daed end numbers.
