Re: Sparton Horns

Welcome to the forum.

Try looking in the water next to the boat for the missing part.

My assumption is the missing part is the diaphragm disc, is that correct? If so, then any stainless disc matching the diameter and thickness should work. Could the part in the other horn be measured?

Re: Sparton Horns

The dropped part was the metal cup that the diaphragm vibrates against. It is a little over one inch in diameter & maybe 3/8" deep.

Re: Sparton Horns

My guess is that part is made from unobtainium.

Locate a used horn to scavenge the part, or have a machine shop duplicate the part from the other horn.

It might be possible to carefully fabricate that cup from standard plumbing parts.
