My Mother got me a lovely Christmas gift this year in the form of a used Mont Blanc 149. Unfortunately there is a fracture in the feed which is causing hard starting and skipping. If you will excuse the photo quality, you'll see applying slight pressure separates the plastic along the fracture, to which some ink will come out. I believe some kind of leak is happening as well, albeit minute. The seller refused to pay anything towards the service fees so I would have to pay out of pocket.
I was curious if there exists a way to repair the feed so that I would not have to send in the pen to Mont Blanc for costly repairs. As I understand the parts supply online is rather scarce and feeds especially so.
