I just tried this technique, and it worked for the most part! But upon putting it all back together the filler knob will not screw all the way back in? There is about a 1/8 or 1/16 gap, but no ink comes out thru this gap! AND the piston rides nice and smoothly, whereas before it was a rough ride!
My only mistake in taking the piston area apart? Was not using heat on the know as it was a bear to get apart! Using heat in hinsite would have made the job much easier :-) It is still such a tight fit.....
