Dear OH NO:
Restoring the Yoder horn is ancient history.
To successfully do this, wrap the horn remnant securely,
put it in a little box and send it off to Duane Taylor.
I know for certain he has rebulbed some 40 or 50 of these
noisy little things. Amazingly, they all had the correct toot when rebulbolated and squeezed properly.

My original Yoder horn has finally given up the ghost. When I pulled my 55 Hummer out this spring, I noticed the bulb was flopping around a little. Closer inspection shows the rubber is cracked near where it meets the ferrule.
Has anyone successfully re-bulbed this horn? Where did you find the replacement bulb?
The change from 69001-55 to 69001-55A horn occurred in 1959, not 1960 as told in the How To Restore section. Here's a scan of a 1959 Supplement Spare Parts Catalog. But we still have no idea what the 69001-55A looked like...
