Welcome to the forum ...

Regarding your questions:

(1) Sounds like you should check your throttle linkage for smooth movement AND lubricate it. It is recommended to use ATF fluid for the pivots and ball joints

(2) Strange, I agree. It sounds like there is a a broken or weak contact in the wire between where the new horn wire and the original horn contact wire meet. Check there first.

(3) Often starting problems are related to cap and rotors. Is yours a fuel injected model or carb? If carb, after checking the rotor/cap and plugs, I would make sure the auto choke is working properly. Best done absolutely cold (first thing in morning) with the air cleaner off so you can see the choke flap postion inside the carb throat.

You do not have to change the relay when you change the fuel filter. Often a "crush" washer is used to attach the lines. Be sure to install a new one if so used.

Hope this helps,
