AA steering wheel originality question

my truck is a late 28. it has the remains of a black steering wheel with a recessed area for the horn button and bezel. what year did the AA use this style and when was the non indented or recessed style used. question two: is the horn button interchangable? thank you, kevin

Re: They're still out there waiting to be found!

what a really nice find. you can feel the energy of the person that parked it and seems to have just walked away from it. do you have any history on it? did that owner die, why was it decomissioned? have you started it? very nice. kevin in ct

i would just re torque the head gasket. many of the gaskets say that this must be done. who knows the car could be lactose intolerant and then you could have even bigger problems. strange liquids could start coming out any end and horrible burping through the carb. hope this helps.
