Thanks to all who helped with information.  Today I got the horn 
adjusted and it works just great.

Is that the club that Carl Cederstrand is in?  A couple of years ago my 
wife and I were vacationing in Palm Springs, CA and we got to our hotel 
to find the parking lot full of T series MGs.  Imagine traveling across 
the country and running into something like that.  They were there on 
their yearly jaunt to spend a couple of days in Palm Springs.
