Horn Problem Revisit

I've read previous posts regarding horns that click and clack and sound like they want to work, but don't. I've turned the adjusting screw 1/4 turn through the whole range of adjustment without any change. I finally disassembled the unit. It seems to me the lower contacts are worn. I lightly cleaned them and reassembled the unit. Same as before...sure sounds like it wants to work. Do I need to keep looking for the sweet spot? Can the contacts be replaced?
Thanks,
Randy

The Original hord are just plain lousey!
even if you get them to work, next year there back to dead again.
I have a replacement horn I sell, that will fit in and comes with a new chrome grill but you can use the original grill too if yours is good.
I modify each one and test the toot before shipping, seem,s like each one has its own little toot difference. $35.00
Ron should have some there for me at the Boston swin in.
I have a box with 100's,,,, well lots,,,, of junk originals.

I have repaired many of the original horns and they are louder than any of the replacement units I've heard. I did the horns on my two cars 12 years ago and they are still running fine. I sell them on Ebay but you can contact me if you want talk about yours.
