Default Model A Ford Ahooga Horn ID

I have a GMI/GIM horn. It has the correct markings on the bell rim and motor rim. There is no motor cover at this time. I know that this horn was known to have the brushes in a unique position. This horn has the brushes in line with the motor bracket. When did GMI/GIM do this type set up?

Thanks, Bob

another reason to buy the Restorers Guide/ Judging Standards from either of the national clubs, or any major parts vendor. Tons of accurate information.

Thanks for the input. I do have the books mention but none address a variation of the motor. Thanks again, Bob
