  1. I have recently inherited a couple of pens from my father. I'm mainly a Parker freak, and one of them was a battered P75 I've repaired and put back on the road. The other takes me out of my comfort zone: a Conway 87 - see photos below. It's in quite a bad way and needs a good deal of TLC. It is inscribed 14CTGOLD on the nib, and 'Conway 87 made in England' on the barrel. I've found a website that sys these pens were made (or started being made) in 1960. The sac has totally perished. It looks to me as if the squeeze filler is not a removable converter, but is fixed into the pen. Is this correct? I don't want to apply too much force. What is the best way to disassemble the pen? I've recently successfully replaced a sac on an old Parker Duofold, with the help of advice from people in the FPN and a couple of Youtube videos, but there seems to be nothing equivalent for Conway Stewarts. Is it the black ring that unscrews, with the help of a hair drier and section pliers? I imagine the nib must be removed outwards, but is it a straight pull or does it unscrew? All help and advice gratefully received. It would be really nice to put this veteran back into working order. Peter
  2. Hello Parker forum. I was recently sold a what was described as a Broad Italic Duofold Centennial nib, but I have some doubts as to that. The packet it came in indicated "BI" so that was that I thought and it certainly wrote a little broader than the M nib my duofold came with, but it just didn't seem right. Finally did what I should have done from the start and took a loupe to the thing and the nib certainly doesn't look italic to me. It looks distinctly oblique. The feed number code is 87. From my scattered researches since then I think I've pinned this down to a "Fine Oblique". Can anyone here please confirm this for me? The Broad italic feed code I'm not so sure about, but I think it might be 95 (but that might just be for the smaller International nibs..?) I've reached out to Parker themselves (twice) but am still awaiting a reply. The retailer (theonlinepencompany / pilotfish) just packages and sends these things so they have no clue either. Any assistance in identifying what exactly I've been sent would be most appreciated! The "broad italic": The feed:
