Re: GAV needle threads... unique to this component?

Are you sure that they're not #14-24?
Sometimes people mistake #14 for 1/4".
14-24 is an old ASME thread.
#14 is .242" diameter.

Re: Noisy generator

Are you sure you have the proper springs in there? Starter springs look the same but have much more tension.
What kind of noise?

That is not necessary. It just makes it easier, going from side to side.

Why not contact the PO and verify that it is a 6V alternator.

I used self locking nuts on the rear main recently, it hasn't been long enough to evaluate how good they perform.

Re: using a 12 volt system with the 6 volt horn

It sounds like the problem is the ground circuit from the horn button. Try a jumper direct from a good ground to the horn.
