So I got a Pelikan 100N. 


Unfortunately, the piston is leaky. I tested it with water and very quickly I noticed that the water got behind the piston seal. Also, the piston mechanism doesn't seem to make a tinest resitance when I use it which is kind of suprising. 


I suppose the seal isn't good? Or something's missing? I'm not really sure how it should look like or what to do with that.


If seal replacement is needed where could I get a matching part and how to install it?


Also, there was this sort of a thin o-ring on the mechanism - it was loosely dangling on it (visible on the second picture). I don't know what it is but it's broken.

try to contact Pelikan, Germany, sometimes Mr. Dittmer offers to repair it, if there are retails in the archive.


Otherwise you can purchase an other one, asking if it is ok. They are not seldom in Germany.

Seconded, since you are adept enough, to get the piston out, changing the seal should not pose a problem
