Kleinn Train Horns Install HELP!!!

Hey guys just got my kleiin train horns, HK7 kit. just wondering who has installed train horns on their trucks cause i dont know where i should put my compressor, my tank, and the horns??? any ideas? i have seen people put the compressor and tank under the bed somewhere mounted on the frame. was wondering if someone had some detailed pictures of this so i have some references. where did you mount the actual horns? also, is it hard to do the wiring to the switch in the cab?

also, the HK7 kit comes with a 3 gallon take. i got the big tank so i could hook up another air hose that i could use for some air tools. has anyone else done this with their set ups???

Thanks.

Man thats the hardest part!! Seriously.. I put my tank and compressor on the passenger side rocker panel. As for the Horns mine fit under the driver seat next to the drove shaft. I was looking at putting my tank in the bed. I do know alot of people mount there horns where the rear tire is.

I'll try to find pics later but I mounted my horns in the front grille. Two directly to the radiator support bracket and two to a flat aluminum bar which I attached to the same bracket. I mounted the compressor to the frame rail and attached a piece of diamond plate of aluminum underneath the driver's side rear passenger seat. I bolted the tank to the plate. The compressor and tank should be mounted near each other if possible. If you don't have a spare tire underneath, some people will mount the horns in that cavity. Wiring the switches and valve is the hardest part of the job. The horns can be mounted facing in any direction but I would personally advise you to mount them facing down or to the rear. Facing down makes them very loud because you get a shockwave off the pavement. It also keeps water from getting into the horns. Any way you mount them will be loud though.

Setting up a connection for air tools is easy. Just screw in a female air hose connector to one of the tank's ports.

@Tow Master, how do you drain water out of tank with your setup?
