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.
