Default Horn condenser

I have a 1934 horn with a condenser and horn is not working; would like to replace the condenser. My question(s): 1.) what condenser do I replace it with? 2.) The original condenser is a 2 wire condenser- can I find a 2 wire condenser and 3.)which wire goes where when replacing.

Thanks

Henry

Default Re: Horn condenser

Your Sparton horn condenser is .2mfd 400 volt. Look them up on ebay,very cheap. They have a wire out of each end. The condenser is connected across the horn contacts or in other words each condenser wire goes to each horn contact, soldered onto a tab. Easy to fit. The horn requires a condenser to work nicely. Regards, Kevin.
