stylophilly posted a topic in Of Nibs & TinesI just want to share my initial experience with the replacement ebonite feed for the Pilot Custom 823 and 743 I purchased from Flexible Nib Factory. The one I got is a black ebonite feed with the “2 Slit Ink Slot.” Attached photo is a top view of the said feed, showing the two “ink slots” or ink fissures in the feed air channel (see Figure 1).

My question is how to I replace the feed correctly inside the section so that the cap will properly close on the section without interference? Lubrication? Silicone grease? Please help!
