So, in order to take the arm off the shaft, I had to make the cutest, tiniest puller in history.

It's just a 1" square tube, a 1/4-20 bolt and nut, a little filing, and a little sanding.

Oh, and I had to scribe the shaft, too, so I don't lose the orientation it's supposed to go back together.

Now I have to model the mounts for the wipers on the bottom of the gear.

I think I need a kind of secondary horn. I still want to be able to give a friendly little beep-beep, but if I hold down the horn button for more than X time and it activates the angry horn.

There anything readily available for that? If not, what sort of circuit do I need?

I approve of this idea. My box truck had the whimpiest little beeper ever when I got it - like a squeaky dog toy. CHinese-made air-powered is what I gave it. I don't use the horn much but when I do. HEH!

2nd button on the dash for the "meep meep" horn would be easiest. Plus if you just need to lay on the main horn, you don't have to wait for 2 seconds of meep meep.

Steal power off the wire for the existing horn fuse behind the fusebox so you're on a pre-fused circuit, run that -> meep meep button -> meep meep horn -> ground.

Think you can help walk me through how to troubleshoot this? I'm not sure how to hook it up properly to get the gauge to work.

Three terminals on the top right are the oil gauge

Circuit

C251 is the gauge side

Some potentially helpful background
https://uselessforums.com/threads/a-thread-about-butt-mustard-for-those-who-drive-automobiles.13636/page-819#post-1672812

So, I've measured the sender and the gauge. What do I need to do to get these to talk properly?
Gauge position is roughly approximate.
