If not leave me a PM and will walk you through it.
No toes stepped on here, I'm pretty much a Diy guy. Something breaks I like to fix it. I did not take the horn apart, all I did was hook the squaking horn up by it self and honk it then turn the allen screw little by little until it sounded right again. Simple procedure.

Great you did it correctly. Also, when all together blowing, see how the bell sounds. You will hear a difference. Might have to adjust again. How I adjust is a 1/16" at a time. I have did some custom work with the company that manufacures them for HB.

Yeah, Maybe when I take them off of my truck sometime in the future (During some Maintenance) I will try that. I'm pretty much still under doctor orders to "Take it Easy!". lol

From the manufacture; " any components are available individually. However, the diaphragm does not normally wear out, due to use, within 20 years or so. The only need for replacement I've seen is due to damage - someone pokes a hole with a sharp rod or something like that."

So I guess you can buy new diaphragms if that is ever the problem. How you would take apart the horns and put them back together, I'm not sure

I recently acquired this.


It has the exact same size diaphragms as the shockers. It was actually pretty easy except I really don't recommend taking apart shockers unless you HAVE to.
