    Parker 17 Lady, Loose Cap

    Hello FPN members. I'm new so please excuse me if this topic has already been dealt with. I have three Parker 17 Lady fountain pens all of which have the same problem - the cap will not stay on when I have the pen in my shirt or jacket pocket. I keep buying another with the hope that it will be better, but no luck. I have also had to replace several shirts and jackets. On the latest one, which is also my favourite - green with gold trim, I have been able to extract the metal insert inside the cap (I think it's called the clutch), spread it out a bit and re-insert it. The lower edge of the insert is now about 3mm from the lower edge of the cap - previously it was much further in. The cap appears to grip the pen more firmly but I find myself checking it every 30 minutes or so. How exactly should the insert be fitted and am I addressing the problem correctly? All tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance, Neville

    Parker 17 Drawing A Vacuum?

    Picked up a Parker 17 recently and, even after a thorough clean and nib realignment, I'm having problems with ink in the cap to such an extent as to make it unusable. I notice that, unlike UK duofolds of the same era, it doesn't have a hole in the cap to prevent it drawing a vacuum when uncapping. Is this something I just need to live with, or am I missing something obvious. Grateful for any help - this is my first experience with a 17.
