Been chasing one electrical gremlin after another since I completed this years section of the Resto-Mod on the ‘62 C-10. I would get the 4 way flashers fixed and move on to a finicky left front turn signal and in the process of fixing that the 4 way would quit. Then the horn quit while at the GabFest last month. Today I was determined to fix all the signal/flasher/horn problems once and for all. Cleaned grounds again and checked the circuit for the turn signal. Had flashing power to the socket but the bulb wouldn’t flash. Worked over the pins on the base of the bulb with a pair of pliers to raise them up a bit thus making better contact. It worked, I now have 4 ways and turn signals on every corner. On to the horn. Bypassed the relay and the aftermarket klaxon horn worked but the factory horn was DOA. None of the FLAPS had a relay so I had O’Reillys bring one over from one of the OKC stores. Installed the new relay, hooked up the klaxon and left the factory horn disconnected. Legal again. Fingers crossed that the repairs will hold this time.🛠

That experience you had reminds me of that old kids game “Twister” with you holding one wire over here and pressing another one with your foot.

Modern ‘science’: the wonder of a
pre-determined mind…

The ‘baseline belief’ of astronomy:
“Any day now, we’ll pick up a tiny,
coded signal from outer space. Then
we’ll know for certain that there is
intelligence out there, because coded
information does not arise by chance”

The ‘baseline belief’ of biology:
The precisely coded genetic information in
every cell would fill many books…
but we know for certain that no intelligence
could have created life.”

Martin, a trick I've used on old horns is to turn the tone adjustment screw while someone holds the horn button down. Amazingly enough the two steps have to be done together for results.

The above is assuming all the dirt dabber nest have been removed.

I didn’t have an assistant to help with the horn adjustment. The Klaxon works and the original awaits further testing/adjustments/replacement. We do have a Dirt Dabber problem so I will have to check that. Thanks

Today I discovered that the splash pan from a big bolt does not fit on a half ton. I was hoping to be driving it soon and now I have to wait for the new fiberglass one to arrive, then paint it then carry on. Dang!

Wife and I have been doing a bunch of little things as we get close to having a safety done. Some brake work, a couple shocks and spring shackles recently. Just put on new hubcaps. Next 'big' item to do are the windshields (passenger side has a few rock chips/cracks).

After owning this truck for 7 years, I finally got original rims and a new set of tires on the truck. It looks great, and feels great driving it!
