Would anybody happen to have an extra bracket that is used to attach the horn to the engine. My horn is currently mounted on left fender in engine bay and I need this bracket to convert it to stock location. Don't want to make one. My truck is a 1947 3100 with 235 engine. Is there such a thing as a salvage yard for AD pickups? Thanks!

Hello Buck, I moved your post to the swapmeet, as parts requests are not allowed in the discussion forums. Thanks.

Take a look here. Pretty cheap if you don't mind a repop.

It seems you can't use the suggested horn bracket that attaches to the manifold if you have the by pass oil filter system which also attaches to the manifold...which I have. I think there was a factory bracket but it is different from these. I may be wrong...I often am!

Horn and oil filter on forward side of manifold? [ebay.com]

That is the same set-up I run with the factory horn/bracket? Do you have a picture of your engine left side?

It should fit fine. This is a 1950 with 235.
If you can not find the bracket let me know. I have an AD junk yard about 15 miles from me. He might have one. ( of you want original)

The offset horn bracket is not being reproduced & they don't turn up very often.

I have a nice one....PM me for more info.

MT,

Was that offset horn bracket standard equipment (with no filter)?

Or, was it a part sold by itself?

Todd, Would you please check with the AD salvage yard near you for an original engine horn bracket...please? Thanks, Ray Durham

Todd, Still looking for the stock offset horn bracket. ALSO, I would like to find the original horn to go with the bracket. My horn is original but it is pretty banged up. Ray

Mr. Joe, I sent you a USPS money order for the amount your requested (including shipping) yesterday. I left work early to get it done. I must really want that part because I hate going to the PO. Ray Durham

OK

If you had a Pay Pal account...the part would have been delivered to you a week ago & there would be no need to go to the post office.

That being said....The part is boxed up & ready to go.
