    Soak them in CLR and blow dry.
    Think outside the box. Use your imagination.

    Eddie offers a good idea to get rid of some of the light rust. I have taken non-op horns apart, and soaked the voice coil with WD-40 and gotten them to work, but this one you have opened looks pretty bad. The horn should be the same as other Plymouths use, except for the mounting bracket.

    Thanks Eddie & John. I just got back from Home Depot and bought a 1 gallon container of CLR. I took an old plastic coffee container and put one horn in. I just filled the container and it was a bubbling torent! Seems to have slowed down some but there is definitely a chemical reaction who's awsome power parallels that of the helsinke incident of 1907!!!!!!!!!!! LOL

    Just pulled the horn out and it looks much better. Not going to give up on this one just yet. Fortunately the other horn looks fantastic and almost perfect. I wonder why one would be so bad and the other like new. Very Strange...

    The horn looks decent Wayne. Now you can continue to concentrate on the electrical contact and resistance points.

    For the benefit of us "foreigners"....what is CLR?

    (don't worry about the rest....we have WD40!)

    Maybe it's similar to the infamous "Cillit Bang" !!!

    That might work well if also used in a smallish ultrasonic cleaner.

    Just looked it up ....it is for sale in the UK, mainly as a kitchen cleaner. However it can be bought by the gallon: 35 on Amazon UK. That's a lotta money.

    I've seen mud dauber wasps pack horns completely full of mud, which will hasten the rusting. This may have happened to the one horn.

    The voice coil is directly in the center of the horn, Wayne.

    Bad news. The resistance coil is too far gone. I decided to dig through some parts boxes and found another non A/C low tone horn and it works! I've decided to remove the innards and reinstall in the A/C low tone housing. IT IS DIFFERENT!!!!!!!! The A/C low tone has mounting studs in a different location and the plug is opposite the non a/c horn. The number on the housing is also different. The A/C low tone horn has the number 2 stamped on it whereas the non A/C horn has the number 4.

    The number would denote note pitch. (ie..A, E, F, D)
