For those of you who wonder what an M800 is like inside, here is an exploded view.

 

Pelikan800-EV.jpg

 

Top row - Inner cap, cap, clip, top retaining ring

Middle row - barrel, section, nib collar with the metal ring, feed and nib

Bottom row - grip knob, drive spindle, connector bushing. anti-rotation bushing, piston shaft, seal

 

I did not try to remove the trim rings.  They're too firmly attached.

 

Clicking on the picture opens a larger image.

Thanks for sharing. 

 

How hard is it to remove the nib and feed from the collar? I've never tried.

It's a pretty  snug fit, but not impossible to do.  The bigger trick is getting it back together.  There is a tab in the underside of the feed that has to go in a notch in the ring.  One notch is a bit deeper than the other - get it wrong, and the tab will break off, and the nib will tend to shift in the collar.

Thank you for the tip. I'll likely continue to leave them alone. :)

Thank you for that! I love the exploded views. It makes life so much easier when you know what you're trying to take apart, before you start taking it to bits.


Too many pens, too little time!

My mind exceeded my reading speed when I read "Pelikan 800 Exploded...." Then I saw the word "view" and was relieved. Thanks for this, quite useful. 


I like to write or make short videos about my fountain pens such as the Conid Bulkfiller or Pilot Urushi 845 BB:

thank for sharing. how easy it was to remove nib section from barrel? You are correct, the gold trims are injection molded so they wont come out.

I didn't knew it was even possible... I know they are two pieces, but I thought they came glued together.

You don't take the section off of the pen.  The section is glued to the barrel and isn't supposed to come off, but on occasion the section comes loose.  I happen to have one come through where the section was loose and needed to be reattached.

Doesn't Pelikan injection mold the plastic around the trim rings similar to what Montblanc does?  In effect there's no way to remove the cap rings unless you remove all the plastic.  Or do they build them differently?

This above happened to my M800 when a house guest somehow pulled off the section from the barrel.  I guess they didn't realize the cap had to be unscrewed!?  It was a mess.   In any case, how should I re-attached the barrel to the section?  Shellac or epoxy?

If there is no other damage, epoxy.  They aren't supposed to come off.  Put the epoxy on the nose of the barrel, not in the section.  Scuff up the nose piece a bit with 200 grit sand paper.  That way the excess comes out the back instead of going inside where the nib goes.  Cleanup is a lot easier that way.  You can safely clean off the excess with a soft cloth dampened with  denatured alcohol. This is acrylic, not celluloid.

Though Frank Dubiel was known for his stories about taking celluloid pens that he found at the dump (really) and sticking firecrackers in them.   Must have been spectacular.  Sort of like an anvil shoot....   something you really want to see some day, but aren't sure that you want to be especially closely when they do it.

Perfect! I did this exactly as you suggested.  Miraculously, my pen is back in service.  I used J-B plastic bonder.  I hope it lasts...!    I usually hide my pen from my kids but now I've learned to hide it from everyone.
