Hi,

I am encountering problems changing a sac in a Delta Venezia LE Lever filler I received yesterday.

I got the section out with no problems and also succeeded to extract the remains of the old dried sac.

The problem is that the nipple (with the smaller diameter) seems to perfectly fit in a second recession in the barrel, so that if you put a sac on the nipple it simply doesn't fit anymore and the section wont go back in the barrel.

I will appreciate any suggestions/help.

Thanks,

Silviu

Hmmm, only thing I can think of is perhaps there is some of the old sac still on that inside recessed part of the barrel.  If it is all removed, then maybe try a thin walled sac?

Thanks. I've made sure the sac goes in freely without the section. It seems all remnants of the old sac are out.

I'm afraid even an thin walled sac won't be enough - it's a tight fit there. A puzzle ....

Are you sure the sac fits to that nipple? Was the old one attached there? It seems to me that there is no reason the sac could not attach somewhere further up the barrel (this would allow the use of the same section for a range of filling systems).

 

I've never seen a Venezia, so this is a bit of a wild guess!!!!

 

Good luck,

 

Ralf

Hi Ralf,

The old sac was not indeed attached to the nipple when I think of it now. From my experience with vintage lever fillers the sac has to be attached to the nipple in order for ink to be sucked in. Might be they did something similar to the Waterman Ink-View? I have no idea.....

Yes, that's the sort of thing I was thinking, at least regarding positioning the sac further up the barrel. Does your pen have a blind cap that can be removed? It strikes me that there must be some way to get access to the insides, or else they wouldn't have been able to get the filler in when they made it!

Hi,

No, no blind cap. Only access is through the barrel upper part.

I do not think it is impossible to change a sac ...

I just came upon this somewhat old thread. What a strange thing. The lever fillers are some of the easiest pens to restore/maintain... Did you use a probe light (or whatever you can do) to see inside how the pressure bar is moving when you lift the lever? What's this thick black wall inside the barrel? I hope it's not an overly thick sac. I am curious. I thought about getting one of the Delta modern lever fillers too, and I thought it would be easy.  :unsure: Humm...

That's at least one good solution! Marco is a good man  :) . I still would like to know what's the exact structure inside. Looks a bit different than a typical vintage lever filler from the photo of the barrel opening.
