Had a quick play around with bug this afternoon.
I checked the column for straightness and its maybe 4-5mm out of true. Not enough to touch the outer column tube anywhere to earth the horn.
The old wire connection where the horns earth wire attaches to the coupler bolt was loose though so i've replaced it. Hopefully that'll solve the horn sounding when turning problem.

Back on its wheels and the horn is currently behaving itself.
I'll get it out after the weekend and have a run around to see if it still is.
