I have an M150 that I've had for a few years that has always written rather wet.  I stopped caring about that for a while after I got a nice Esterbrook, but that pen will be going in for repair soon and I want to get the Pelikan working the way I want.  So, would someone please point out some resource for manipulating Pelikan nibs in particular?  I think this one needs to have its feed set back a little more.

Do you have the capability of posting photos?  That would help us tell you if the feed looks appropriately positioned.  As for how to reduce the flow on a nib, Richard Binder has written this up and you should be able to do so by following his directions.  These can be found in the "Pen Doctor" articles on his website at Richardspens.com - but be careful when you are doing this as you don't want to push the nib to far and get it to a point it doesn't write at all!


Best of Luck!!!!

I can post photos, but not macro shots of the kind to properly show you my pen's nib.
