Hi everyone, I have a Chinese copy of the Parker 51 called Youth. It has a sentimental value for me, and I've been using it for a few years, but about a month ago I ran out of ink (which was old and started to smell). I bought new ink today, but unfortunately, the sack (where the vacuum is) is now under pressure. It's like that because the pen is probably clogged (combine not writing for a month or so + old ink), so now when I try to vacuum new ink, it doesn't suck it in. How do I fix this? The pen is identical to this one in the pictures attached.
I got a lovely Yard-O-Led, second hand, good condition, but am having problems getting it to write. I have flushed, flushed, flushed with warm water and an ear bulb 'skoosher', but there seems to be a build up of ink just round the joint between the nib and the part which holds the nib; when I lean it on damp kitchen towel, a purpley blue ink comes out. Im itching to use it....any suggestions? Will have one last flush and see if it clears. Should I send it to be serviced? Any help gratefully received.
