Pilot Murex - I had done some minor repair on this pen for the original owner but have since then acquired it for my own collection.
For the repair I did , a full disassembly was not necessary. I pulled the cap off yesterday and the section came loose with it. This is what I saw. Is this normally adhered to the inside of the section like an inner cap in a pen cap? I don't seem to be finding pictures of such a part over the feed as of yet.
I also need to disassemble the feed and section which I assume will take heat. The notches on the black section piece and the notches(tabs?) on the metal aren't matching. I am thinking perhaps the section was torqued at some point in the past.
EDIT - After using some common sense I have the feed and all separated. I'll get the sleeve back into the section and go from there. BUT, what is the partial ring piece technically called? It was on the feed end of the threaded "coupler" the feed was screwed onto. It doesn't seem like part of the ring is missing so I am guessing this is the full piece.
I am amazed it didn't come off and disappear into the pen part triangle. The Saint of tiny pen parts must be on my side today.
