Sounds as if you somehow --while putting in some of the repairs' have managed to inadvertently hardwared a contact to ground, hence the immediate sounding of horn upon connectiing battery. Recheck wiring and contacts and make sure that the contacts that are supposed to only be connected to ground upon demand (when push horn bar on steering wheel) have the insulating spacers so the 'hot wire' from horn is not always conncected to ground.
NOTE that I have not checked wiring diagram and memory may be incorrect meaning that maybe the wiring is reversed with horns grounded and on demand contact applying the positive contact to the horns.
Also check wiring to make sure that there are not nicks in them that let power get to ground.
If you have an ohm-meter you could use that to 'ringout' the horn circuitry without having the horns powered and knocking your ears off and destroying your thought process. Good luck
