Correct. It's a piston filler. Anyway, judging form the rear of the hood, there is no cartdrige to fit there.

I'm sad that it misses the metal ring in mine, and threading de hood in the barrel, even squeezing it tight, the gap from metal ring could be noticed :wacko:


The ring was part of the cap closure system IIRC and it's likely the cap will not be secure and the nib may dry out more without it.


I see. I have either a Lamy ratio (100% like de L6 in the photo: http://pointythings....ens/noslamy.php) that have the exact same ring, and I got it's function.
Should it be easy for me to find a ring for my monte rosa? So I could restore it and put it to work?

I'd PM maxpens or Fountainbel and see if they have a replacement.

Depending on your time frame I can mail you the card of the person who restored a few pens for me. I should be back in portugal by the 18th of January.

That would be very nice GRJP, because I have other pens that need to be restored too. I'll wait for that contact, please.
Thanks
