    I have a 1970 Dodge Charger with air horns. The air compressor and valve body are one assy. The horns are blowing to slow. I need to find out how to increase the amps going too the system to speed up the compressor thus insrease the beat of the horns. So please how do i increase the amps going to the system?

    Hi Andy,

    Are the horns original equipment? The air compressor may be quite worn, the commutator/brushes worn, the lubricant for the motor's bearings dried up, and/or the power or ground lines not well-connected. This isn't an exhaustive list, just a few ideas.

    Also, check for any air leakage which reduces the pressure of the air going to the horns.

    The Dodge had air horns in the '70s? I want to put an actual train horn on my car. The louder, the better. :)
