Hello.  I inherited a 1923 Wahl gold filled small fountain pen from my grandfather and have plans to restore it.
 
I intend to have the nib professionally adjusted and the sac also needs to be replaced.  However, the small
lever  which is used to activate the ink sac  is missing.   I'm  wondering if any of our members has a replacement
lever which I may buy in order to restore this interesting little fountain pen.    In the alternative, can a lever be

used from another brand of a fountain pen which may be readily available?   I am unable to find replacement parts for this 1923 in the internet.  Thank you.  Fernando.

If you send it to a professional, they often have the contacts for sourcing parts. Ask if they can get the part before you send it for a sac and tuning.
