    I have a King 1500 Super Tempo and the 2nd valve casing seems to be too big for the valve in it. I know for a fact that the valve is original. This problem is completely messing the horn's sound up. Any idea of what to do?

    Not familiar with that horn but will say that a casing/valve issue is not a good DIY project. Find a good, hopefully certified tech and let them fix it.:play:

    It was a fabulous horn when it worked. I'd love to have it back in working order.

    Only one thing you can do. Have the valve refitted. Send it to Anderson Plating and get it done.

    How much would an Anderson job cost?
