Just wanted to let anyone contemplating  a Willys horn know that I was pleasently surprised at the sound of the horn Walck's sells. Nice "Willys sound" and LOUD, much louder than I expected. It doesn't look original but either is some other stuff on my Jeep.

What does it look like?  Did you get the 12v version?  I'm trying to figure out how to hook up my old 6v original horn to my 12v system.

Jerry,
I've got a 6V horn hooked to 12V, many here have done that. I haven't had any problems, just can't "lay" on the horn for very long. (that could get you shot in the wrong neighborhood anywayLOL)

Thanks for the tip Gale.  I was wondering if I needed a voltage dropping resistor on it, but I guess not.  These old horns are pretty tough. 
 
I sure wish you lived down here in Florida.  I sure could use another pair of hand on this old Jeep from time to time.  I'm the only flatfender owner that I know of in Florida, within driving distance anyway.

It wires the same way on 12 volts as it does on 6.

Jerry,
I'd gladly give you a hand, gotta be easier than going back to college (which is what I'm doing now) seems to be harder this time (of course that was 40 years ago, I think I've gotten stupider over the yearsLOL)

Well we seem to have that in common then.  I am back in college also.  I'm about two-three years away from finally getting my doctorate in nursing practice.  I'm also working full time and teaching at a local college.  With all that happening I am afraid to dig in to some deep fixes in my jeep without knowing exactly what I'm doing.  I'm having too much fun driving my jeep to see it just sitting in my garage in pieces without the time to put it back together.
 
I know you'd give me a hand, but for now it will have to continue to be the occasional phone call.  At least until you move your awesome shop down here next door to me.
 
Anyhow, expect a phone call from me sometime soon.  I have a trans/clutch issue that I want to talk about.

Hey Guys, about the sound.......does it sound like the Jeep horns from the TV show MASH?

Sorta like a Road Runner horn?
I drove a Jeep many times in the Army (30 years ago!) I can't remember what the horn sounded like! Confused

Buckshot, you're closer than you think, when Chrysler was trying to find the "sound" for the Roadrunner, they ended up using a Jeep horn to get the sound.

Man, I have to hand it to ya Gale, 40 years ago for me to. Got out of the Navy, married, first baby and started school nights, all on the GI Bill (back when it was a good Bill). Only took me 9 years to get a BSME, what a tough time it was. Ouch
