    I have only seen two, a H-for high, and L-for low. The letters should be stamped on them.

    I was reluctant to answer because you're sick and I don't want my computer to get a virus, but I've only seen 2, try each one though, maybe someone got lazy and "replaced" a bad one without removing it.

    I agree mine had 2, my '51 had 2 as well. I am gonna put all 4 on my '65 to mess with whoever buys my '65 (whenever I sell it).

    Well are they all the same in appearance or two sea shell or trumpet horns and one oddball?
    Most old cars have hi and lo horns.

    We have a pair of 54 Buick 12V seashell horns on the 57 Chevy, one on each side of the radistor, and on the driver's side a Bull Horn. The Bull Horn is a novelty accessory horn like a Wolf Whistle or the musical calliopes but really just a horn.

    2 horns..ive never seen a third..plus they thread into the core support at the same place on each side across from each other..the odd ones out I guess!
     
  15. Unplug two at a time. Remove the one that doesn't work.

    If they all work, remove one of the two that sound just the same.

    Why does it matter???:confused: And by the way the drivers side is the left and the passenger side is the right...Always remember this as it helps the partsman when you order parts

    One on the right one on the left mounted at the cross bar. Now one of the tri 5's had an extra horn. If you have one of those it's worth a few dollars. I been sick also so don't ask how to identify the third horn.
