Re: Strange "Clanking Noise" at Idle

Hey Everyone,

Apologies for the lack of reply, life has been a bit crazy and also forum notifications don't seem to be working properly. I still can't seem to get to the bottom of the noise, but...

Re: Constant Horn

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to say thanks for all of your help, especially Daves55Sedan. With the nylon standoffs oriented correctly and a new (homemade) rubber bumper under the emblem, i now have a...

Re: Strange "Clanking Noise" at Idle

Thanks guys for the suggestions and advice. I went under the car near the bellhousing, and the noise seems to be coming from closer to the engine :( I'm going to keep digging, but on Tuesday I should...

Re: Constant Horn

After some experimenting, I'm definitely missing the insulating pad, and the nylon standoffs were upside down. I spaced out the floating plate with some tape for good measure and re-installed to a...

Re: Strange "Clanking Noise" at Idle

Hi Dave,

Thanks again for replying to another one of my threads, if you're ever in the area, beer is on me :) I used that procedure with the engine cold, and now with the engine warmed up, lash...

Re: Constant Horn

Ok, I think I understand what you're saying (I read it a few times, the detail is greatly appreciated), however when I remove the horn ring and spring from the steering wheel, the horn doesn't sound,...

Re: Constant Horn

Hi 'Daves55Sedan',

Thanks for the writeup. If I leave the third terminal of the relay connected to the horn wire, the horn sounds, but if I remove the horn ring the horn doesn't sound so I don't...

Re: Constant Horn

Excellent, I definitely don't have one of those in my assembly. I'll go ahead and order one as I'm sure it's pretty necessary to troubleshoot correctly :D

Re: Constant Horn

Hi Dobie,

Thanks for the troubleshooting steps, I'll give it a shot. You mentioned a horn button insulator pad, do you have a picture or diagram, as it sounds like something i might be missing?

Constant Horn

Hi Everyone,

Hopefully this is a simple one. When my steering wheel is assembled (horn ring), the horn is on, regardless of pressing the ring. At the moment i've disconnected the third terminal of...

Re: Strange "Clanking Noise" at Idle

There is a heat riser on the exhaust crossover, but the noise doesn't appear to be coming from there when I used my makeshift stethoscope. I've also held the riser open/closed while the engine was...

Re: Strange "Clanking Noise" at Idle
