Any tips on tightening the clutch fingers on a Parker 45 to cure a loose fitting cap?  I understand that taking the cap apart is the best method but I don't know if mine is held in place with a rivet or a screw-in jewell. (I do have a jewell top.)


I have tried bending the clutch fingers by sticking a screw driver in the cap but can't seem to reliably "catch" on the fingers.  Any tips?


Thanks in advance.
