Default Buyer beware on another repro part

Just recently I repainted my horn and used all new hardware as well. Well, my horn started acting up by not stopping when the button is released. So I checked to see if the horn button was stuck or something in the light switch was buggered up with no luck. So I pull the horn motor cover, everything looks normal. Then on accident I accidently touch a screw to the motor frame and a spark happens because it shorted. I have a lightbulb moment and test my theory with the horn cover screw and it turns it out it was too long and was contacting the frame shorting out the horn and making it turn and turn. I took a few threads off and solved the problem. The screw was a repro part that was too long I guess.
