I have a recently serviced Sheaffer Snorkel, but it does not make the distinctive click sound after extending the snorkel. And after I fill it, it does not allow me to retract the snorkel, the threads do not engage and I cannot rotate the blind-cap. Only then, when I start to pull the touch down tube out again, do I hear a very distinctive click sound. Sometimes, the snorkel extends a bit further.
I am not experienced with fountain pen repair. Does anyone have advice? Is this a common problem?
Also, I think the spring is grinding away the inside of the barrel. Is this normal?
