I have a beautiful Doric pen that I would like to eventually sell but it has a lever that won't budge, and an internal rattle. I'm guessing it needs a new sac.

 

Does anyone have a step by step for taking the pen apart and replacing the sac or can you recommend a good repair person?

I don't know about food repair persons, but there are a number of good repair persons.  You'll find instructions on Richard Binders website.  Its a simple, straight forward repair.  To take care when removing the section though.  It's the trickiest part.  Use heat carefully so you don't melt the section or barrel, but do use heat so that you don't crack the barrel.
