    Make sure the valve cap and finger button are screwed on correctly and are on tight. If either one is even barely loose, it will clank.

    Smack the horn on your knee a couple of times and see if a beer can opener doesn't fall out of the bell.

    It shouldn't be an issue with Conns, but maybe swapping finger buttons or valve caps from valve to valve might help.

    Check the felt under the valve button. I had similar problem with 2nd valve on my 22B. A replacement for the felt fixed the noise and the alignment in the down position was still Ok.

    Sounds as if the replacement parts used possibly are not correct for that horn.

    My trusty 1947 OLDS Standard would click on the upstroke. It turns out that the top cap was cross-threaded. when it was properly seated, the valve stem was crooked. So, now it goes on straight, goes up and down stra

    Same here. Repositioning and letting the felt "work in" fixed it here.
