If the horn button kit includes a new button, then I will take this old one
out with a drill if I have to. As far as the wiring, I followed the manual
and verified that there is no current getting to the horn when the horn
button is pushed, and there is current going into the horn wire (that runs up
inside the steering column). So, according to the manual, there is a problem
with the horn wire(inside the steering column) or the horn button.

Thanks for the note. I'll let you know what I find out.

and from memory it needs turned 3/8" to 3/4" before it will come out.
They do have a habit of breaking and you will end up with a kit anyway,
so you could afford to be quite brutal with it (I'm saying that because
I have 10+ spare buttons I got from Norway, but the cost of postage
would be more than you would pay locally for the complete horn kit)

It might also have disengaged already (perhaps it wasnt fully home
originally) and you might just need to pull it out. Try pulling it up
with a wire hook at both sides when you have turned it as far as it
will go. I'm assuming you have already tried providing a ground
connection to the connector at the base of the steering column to test
the horn operation, and that you remembered that it was grounded to
operate with a permanent live feed. >>
