The horn on my '59 MGA does not work.  While down here in the South,
folks tend to favor more digital forms of communication, horns are used
from time to time (usually as a greeting or approbation).  I have hooked
a meter to the wires to the horn and get current when the button is
depressed (reads about 9v on the 10v scale and 12v on the 50v scale).  I
hooked the horn up to my battery charger and got a real blast.  I've
futched around with the horn contacts - hit them with fine sandpaper,
WD40 and a bit of air.  It appears I have a loose connection somewhere
and may not be getting enough current to the horn.  I plan on running a
jumper across my horn switch terminals and checking all my connections.
Any other suggestions?

Thanks much.
