I've had my 2155 for a few years now, and I've never been totally satisfied with the valves. I believe that these are the same valves that are used on the 2165 and maybe on the 2145 as well. The persons I know with these horns have also had similar problems. Basically, I have to oil them at least once daily, and they still stick, and are hard to push down, and are noisy. I was wondering if this just means that these valves are not very good, or should I look for new springs, etc.? Repairmen have given me various solutions, but they never work over the long run. I've also been told that they will "break in". But it's been 2 years, and they haven't. Any ideas?
