Good Morn. Could you please help with 39 Horn Wiring ?
I am guessing that #3 goes to the two horn wires ?
Not sure which is power & ground ?

Wires 1&2 are from harness, should be both yellow/green. Yes on #3 to horns. They ground to frame thru their bracket so make sure you have clean surfaces.

All my early Ford cars have wiring from Chris at Bauer. He will make it any way you want with cloth covered correct colored wire. I told him I was running a 59 series engine in my 32 5w, 6V using generator and v reg, wanted turn signals in the 2 bulb headlights, stock starter switch and headlight switch, 52 Pontiac taillights. Everything came quickly and fit perfect including the dome light wire to switch and on to the light.

39 Deluxe. So new harness was all in , along with new headlight switch. Was working fine, not so much now. Pulled switch off bottom of Steer Box and found a 1/2 clip loose in there.
Does it go on Brass horn connector with the brass spring ? CBA7F2C2-4F7E-4FC0-9711-B48A4D775F8D.jpg

There should be a contact that rotates with the horn rod that is retained by the spring and clip. It can be a bit of a pain to assemble.

Ok so the Contact that rotates on shaft has two blades to go into Headlight Switch. It’s stuck in Switch Housing. I did not want to pull too hard till you guys straightened me out. I will have to pull it out and attach to shaft with clip.
Guess I will also have to clock it properly so “ Deluxe “ is in proper position on steering wheel when Lights are in the “Off” position.
