I have never seen a horn look that bad inside. What a waste.

Maybe I should go into the horn cleaning buisness. That horn does not look too bad. It was used and sligtly abused but I'm sure it will play good again. A little elbow grease and it will be fine. Perhaps new springs and felts.
Wow,that will need some serious cleaning.
Mr. Ivan Hunter, I have a stuck second valve stem on my 1970 1055T King Silver Flair. Was like that after I bought it. Did not notice till time to clean about a month later. Do not think it is cross threaded.
These valve stems are made of Aluminum. Was wondering what I could spray into the bottom hole of valve hole? Let sit over night upside down,till solvent hopefully worked into threads and loosen it with mild twisting. Aluminuim is a soft metal and afraid to put to much pressure on it. Some solvents may also not work on aluminuim.
Was waiting till first of next year and take Horn to my Music Tech. if this is a hard fix. Would be hard to find those type replacement valve stems. Any suggestions? Thanks for any replys
I agree. Actually, I think the flash makes it look a little worse than it is. Yes, needs a cleaning.

Unfortunately the use (by virtually all manufacturers) of Aluminum for a piston stem is a pretty stupid design! The Aluminum screws into Brass. As anyone with an outboard motor knows, these two metals are fantastic for Galvanic action. In the presence of an electrolyte (perspiration/acid breath) the Aluminum is eaten away rather quickly (white corrosion).

Ditto Mr. Hunter,thank You. Will take to my Music Tech to fix. Will write that part # down for a replacement stem if needed.
