    picture 2 seems to be a clip for the antenna, picture 3 is your heater, pull the left stick for "cold" air, middle stick to switch between foot and window heater and the right stick for "warm" air (engine temperature). the rotary turn at the right side is the blower.
    the horn is on the same stick like the turn signal. just press forward

    No because the Switches are not original, they used to be re-tooled. Maybe a battery-off-switch?

    Also, the arrow pointing up on picture 3 is the fuel shutoff for the petcock. There are three positions. Off, On, and Reserve.

    Red "button" is indicator hazard light.
    To operate horn press indicator stick forward but briefly (otherwise it can break)
    Horn is located into red circle.
