If you want to remove just the stick, unscrew the hemispherical nut at the base of the stick and pull it out. Have the transmission in neutral and the stick will pull straight up.

If you have the single horn mounted next to the radiator, the wiring connects directly to the horn. There is no relay. The dual horns used on the '51-'52 trucks had a relay.

Mike, You are probably right, with just the wipers, it probably won't develop that much heat. I guess my concern is that if these reducers do produce very much heat, if there would be a fire issue....

There were two sizes of Hercules Diesel engines available, for export only, in the '48-'52 F4 and larger trucks. So, even in the trucks we are interested in, Ford wasn't always powered by Ford.

Dual points are not supposed to open at the same time. They open and close a split second apart so they double charge the condenser to give a hotter spark. IIRC the '48 and earlier points were left...
