Curious about "ooooga" horns
I've been told that the "oooga" horn was designed with a purpose. Mine functions perfectly -- a slight push is barely audible, and sounds like some animal in distress. A full push is loud and "animal-like", I suppose. Horses were as common on the road as cars, and I...

guages
As I go through my 1922 Durant Touring I have come to realize that the oil pressure and amp guage are incorrect. The early A-22 had a 0-10 lb guage the 1923? they had a 0-5 lb guage. This would mean that my 0-50 lb guge is not correct. This would also explain the dog...
