As long as Im here, might as well ask this one also. I have the horn from my 41 all nicely disassembled and will probably try to rebuild it. There is a black device about 1/2 in diameter and 1 long clamped to the solenoid plate that one of the wires passes through. Maybe it is a resistor. It is made of a single sheet of black paper with a silver coating all nicely rolled up with the wire soldered to both ends. So what is it? If it is a resistor what is its rating?

sounds like some type of buffer capacitance unit - not a resistor for sure, and not likely you'll find a new one! the horns weren't ordinarily serviced back then
