Question

is a air tank necessary or is this a direct hook up to the horns?

Asked on 07/07/2014 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

No air tank needed. Just takes a plastic airline from the compressor to the horn

Answer

It's a direct hook up. One air tube from the compressor to a tee connection then to the two horns.

Answer

Direct hook up

Answered on 07/08/2014 by SCOTT BRUNJES

Answer

I purchased the air horn as a replacement for my 15 year old air horn that had quit working. The AFI air horn hooked directly to my boat horn and did not need a separate air tank. It works fine. JL, Wrightsville Beach, NC

Question

My air horn 12v relay is failing and I can't seem to find a replacement. Anybody know where I can find one? OR... can I just directly wire the compressor to the horn button? The compressor is rated at 20A maximum. Don't know the rating of the horn button, but it's pretty heavy duty. (Made in 1973.)

Bill, Air horn relays are readily available from many auto and/or truck parts stores but they do seem to vary quite a bit in design. I suggest you Google the manufacturer's name and part number from the old relay and find it on-line. I did that for my 1967 Chris Craft and found the direct replacement. It was a simple 3 pole relay "Standard Motor Parts HR106" and I purchased it on Amazon for $14. Other sites have it for $20 to $25. Direct wire requires using a fairly large gauge wire for the whole setup. Probably at least 12 ga. Easier to replace the relay. Good luck with your project.

Answer

A new relay can be obtained at a good auto parts store. I don't recommend connecting to the horn button. Remember there is a large inductive load on the switch when it is first pressed. With this load the horn button wouldn't last long. Think also of the effect of a spark on gasoline fumes.
