Mine are facing the front. But when you have Nathan's, it doesn't matter which way they're facing because they're so loud

Mine were facing forward as well. No matter what way they are facing you will get the attention from who you are (and everyone else's) honking at.

04 f250 sold.

I had the same concern, and it won't matter which way they're pointed. They're omnipresent.

I am in the process of restoring a set of leslie s5-t horns. just had the power chambers machined back to factory specs and new diaphragms. trying clean them up now so I can slap some paint on them and put them together. I am going to make a tank that goes under my tool box with a bracket that comes up so I can mount the horns right on the front of my tool box in the bed. Going to be at least 10 gallons probably around 15. hard line plumbing hopefully 3/4" if i can make it work. pressure switch set to about 120. only thing i can't decide on is what compressors to run. anyone have any input on that?
