Found an elastomer seal in my 146 bits box. It fits the barrel of my 146g perfectly, snug and airtight. Slides the length smoothly.
I have some other old Meisterstucks which are using elastomer seals, and they've been working, trouble free for years. So, I'd like to try this one out. Problem is: it's completely different fitting system - the original has the cork seal and the threaded collar nut, the elastomer is (?) a clip, fit ... perhaps?
I don't want to do anything irreversible (glues etc) to the pen, but I have a few half-notions of a possible method.
These are everyday working pens, not collectible stars!
Any suggestions, or known fixes, welcomed.
If I can't get it working, I'll cut a new cork.
Some phone snaps. No artistic merit implied, but may help to clarify.
