Take everything under the horn button off except the nut,,,,,,,,see if your problem goes away,,,,,,jump the horn brush contact to the nut,,,,,,,that should energize the horn relay which will turn on the horn,,,,,,see what you get......

stick a paperclip in the horn relay socket to see if the horn works to eliminate the relay or wiring being bad......

just don't be pushing the horn button when you stick a paper clip in the socket where the relay goes,,,,horn should blow when you find the 2 correct slots to jump across.....

If the horn blasted for 15 mins, probably overheated inside and damaged coil, but at almost 50 years old it was probably on its way out....relay is in back of engine box on these things!

the turn signal switch, and the horn relay is different
and located under dash instead of in doghouse
turn signal switch has emergency flasher built in
