Reply to "Lionel Post WW2 F3 Shell Horn Replacement"

I'm not sure how Jon's tool works, But the factory used a special tool to secure the horn tight. I would use JW Weld instead of superglue. Less chance of of running out on the outside of the body, marring it.

It's used in a press, but not necessary.  The aluminum horn fits through the hole and the top of the tool presses against the black horn bracket (assuming you are trying to secure the GG1 style horn used on the 2333, 34, 2343 & 2344 diesels). The tapered tool is inserted into the body to spread the tabs on the bracket.  You can use a broad flat punch to flatten the tabs.  Done many with this tool.
