G'day Ian
That horn appears to be a modern era repro horn, not Model A horn. It may be 12v.
The horn on your '32 will be the same as the A, except for the motor cover.
Cheers Tom in NZ.

Hi Tom & Ian,

They were very common here in the 70's and cost approximately $20. They were made by Hutchins. I have an original '32 sparton motor cover, if you need one Ian.

Model A's don't leak oil they just mark their territory.

Hi Tom & Bick Thanks for the information. I have just now bought a original Model A Sparton horn on Trade me as the one on the 32 sounds a bit sick. the trouble is a lot of these horns have originally been run on 12 volts which does not help them.so I want to and replace it with another one with improvements. That Hutchins horn has just came up for sale on Trademe.

In depth discussion of Hutchins horns. Including the fact that in 2016 they were still available new and the owner of the company posted here.

Ian, I just had a thought that the base plate on the '32 Sparton is different to the Model A, to accommodate the '32 cover. Someone with more knowledge of this will hopefully chime in with the facts.

The 1932 cover fits straight on but base plate which takes the 32 mounting bracket is different so the six holes with the bolts that clamp everything together have to be rearranged thats what I had to do to the Model A Sparton horn I have on the 32.
