I do. I look for the white paint model # stamping on all
Delco 16 horns too. 1/4 point deduction for missing the
stamp. 2 points off if the horn is the wrong one.

Good point but Harley (like all manufacturers) sometimes
carried parts from one year into another to use up
inventory before changes took place...and made
substitutions when outsourced parts weren't available.
How can a judge account for that? Right now I just
finished being driven crazy by a 1998 Subaru Outback
Legacy that had a check engine light problem. Some of the
Legacy evap parts wouldn't fit until I discovered they'd
used 'Forester' parts instead! Note: how many judges look
at the back of horns?

OF INTEREST-MAYBE.

RESTORING A GROUP OF 20 DELCO-REMY 6-V HORNS AND LOOKING
AT
ALL OF THE COLLECTION (47 ), ONLY ONE IS TYPE M. IT IS A
4 LEAF BUT A FEW OF THE REMAINING ARE BROKEN 4 LEAF
STAMPED
DELCO-REMY 16.

SO WHAT IS THE POINT:
THE TYPE M WAS INTRODUCED IN 1957.
HOW MANY OF THE DR-16 WERE LEFT OVER AND USED IN 1957.
THAT SAID, IF THE JUDGES LOOK AT THIS FOR POINTS, WHERE
DO THEY DRAW THE LINE.

IF THE TYPE M IS NOT A JUDGING FACTOR THEN THERE IS NO
ISSUE.
OUR CLUB JUDGES HAVE CERTAINLY SEEN MORE 57-59 MODELS
THAN I HAVE.
