The ink spent years drying and clogging your pens. A few patient days of correction is not too much to ask. Drop the nib and section
part into room temp water for a few hours. Then, rinse. Repeat until nothing oozes out to discolor the soak water. Shake dry. and let
the nib rest in contact with a dry paper towel to "wick" out residual water.
This is what I use for maintenance flushing. I trim the tip in small increments, until it fits firmly over the section. Slowly push room temp
water for 30 seconds, in each direction. Then, dry as above.
Are there any names on your pens, to indicate the brand ?
This seems to be what i ned to do. What is the name of the white thingies/pumps and where did you get them? Are these the same used to clean the ears? I remember my father having this problem and using something similar.
I have since found out that one is Yafa and the other says - a doubtful- Pierre Cardin... I like them because they were gifts from people i care for and knew my tastes for notebooks and pens, etc...
