I am currently trying to get an old Century sleeve filler restored. Unfortunately i got the pen with internal components missing. I would like to ask some one who has one of these for an image of the filling system to see if i can get whats missing re-built by some one.





What i have done so far is to fit a replacement pressure bar to get the pen going. I don't actually know what the real one is supposed to look like. Pen is filled up currently by rotating the entire barrel until the sac cut-out on the inner brass barrel is exposed through the cut-out on the outer barrel. I am not sure if this is the correct filling system to begin with :(. Pen had a partly-broken and hardened sac which i replaced. 





If one could point me to an image of one it would really help to get this pen sorted.

sorry for a late reply

basically nothing is missing

You have an extra incorrect piece - the J bar is incorrect.  It should just be a smooth flat bar with no bend in it at all. The bar rests on the sac to assist with compressing it.


The pen while in use should be like the first photo above with the sac shielded by the inner brass sleeve.

To fill, rotate the section vs the barrel to expose the sac. Then squeeze the sac.

Usually the flat bar is resting on the sac to help compress it more fully (more of the length).  The bar goes between the sac and the brass sleeve.


This might help
