He said he put oil in it and cleaned it up and it actuated as it should. He thinks it might be the switch that has an issue. I'm still stuck at work so I wasn't there for this glorious occasion.

Ok, Randy, just got home and he says he DID spray it with WD 40 and hit it with a big hammer and BOOM...it shot out!

Now it's not going all the way back in. He said it's the switch. Also said the fuel filter was full of mungus.

Hopefully, not anymore.
On the positive side...I did find our musical horn box this afternoon. This tells me we could possibly have a functioning musical horn in the future....hopefully.

Interesting find.
thanks. Haven't really looked in Ga. or Al due to taxation.

I am very proud to add our name to the list of musical horn busses! We put up new speakers this morning and everything works! (Our unfortunately neighbors can attest to this...lol) Can't wait for my next road trip now!

Hi,
What model horns did you get?
My FC horn speakers are weak.
Thanks!
