Stewart Warner Horn tag source?

Does anyone know of a source for a name tag for a Stewart Warner horn? The Sparton ones seem readily available, but I have a Stewart Warner horn. Help!!!

Re: Fun project voltage regulator

After reading comment #4 I searched on eBay - found a listing from Mac's saying they had one left. I placed the order, only to have it canceled two days later. Any other sources?

Re: Non-Authentic Paint Colors & Schemes

As you can see by my avatar, I have a non-stock paint color selection on my coupe. I get many compliments about the color scheme and have never had anyone ask if it's an original color. The red is...

I use American Modern (through USAA) also. Very happy with them in all respects.

Re: Engine Stand

I would get rid of that three wheel engine stand ASAP. It's just a disaster waiting to happen. I just bought a nice four wheel one from Harbor Freight. Works a charm!!

Re: Running Poorly

I vote for a new condenser. I had these same symptoms on my 6cyl F-1 a few years ago. Don't spend your time trying to see how hot the spark is. Bite the bullet! Condenser aren't very expensive!!

Re: Primer for YOM plates

My coupe is registered in PA with a YOM plate. You must go to the state web site to screen the number. The registration shows that number - I do not have another set of regular plates. I had the...

Re: Model A Registration Woes

Because Maine is a no-title state I think you should be able to slide through. Just go down to your town hall and file the paperwork. I've done it before with successful outcome. Go to the town hall...

Re: Couldn't Resist It

Well, sometimes it's better than you might expect. I bought a pig in a poke engine last year and just found the main bearings to be 0.003" with shims still in the engine. Whew!!

Re: Who Remembers Model "A" Parts in the Sears Catalog?

Yes - I remember!! Not much of a selection. I think they were probably made in the USA. This was before the offshore suppliers really got rolling.

Re: 8 volt battery in 6 volt car

Millions of Model A's (and later v-8's) were built and ran very happily on 6 volts. It ain't broke!! It doesn't need to be fixed!! Going to higher voltages masks problems. It doesn't fix them.

Re: What spark plugs are you currently using?

Back in the day (50's-60's), C-4's were considered the standard plug. How times change!! I had never heard of a 3-X until last year when I got back into the Model A world.

Re: Where do I store stuff??

There's a really cool tool box that fits between the front "horns" just in front of the radiator. Looks like it belongs there. That's the good news. The bad news is I don't think they are made...

Re: Is there such a thing as a 6 volt heater?

If you are going to run a hot water heater I suggest that you use a 180 degree thermostat.
