The horn on my 56 is very very sensitive. You barely have to touch the horn ring to sound the horn. Remember reading that Another member was having the same issue years ago but can’t remember what the fix was. Could someone please refresh my memory. Thanks

a stronger spring? i would probly take it apart and figger a way to make the stroke longer by somehow shortening, or stretching something in there.

70 L camino, grampa engine, g-force 5 spd, road rage suspension. Pray first before all else fails.

The fix for my very sensitive horn was to loosen the three screws that hold the plastic ring with the three pedestals. I guess my idea of snug was too tight. If the screws are too tight as mine were the concave metal spring get compressed and the clearance between the spring contact and the concave metal spring gets smaller making for a sensitive horn. For info: the 16 inch steering wheel is a big improvement for driving comfort and getting in and out of the car.
