Where Can I Get Replacement Parts/advice For A Vac-Fill Sheaffer?

The pen is really small, has a post-war cap band, and has a triumph nib, and a moveable blind cap held in place with some sort of aluminum collar, so I think it is a sovereign II. So far I think I need to screw out the collar with a prong?, repack the packing unit, and get a new rubber seal. Where can I get the rubber seal and other replacement materials? What tool do you use to screw of the thing holding on the blind cap?

If anybody wants to buy a FPR triveni, a waterman's crusader with a modified barrel, or faber castell pitt brush pens I have one just for you!

You are undertaking the repair of the most difficult vacuum system pen. For starter, removing the Triumph nib without destroying it requires a lot of practice. Not to mention replacing the packing.

 

Repairing Sheaffer vacumm fill pens is my hobby (I do not do it for others),however, I broke many pens before I got semi proficient, and once in a while I still break one.

 

Your best bet is to send it to those who specialize in repairing Sheaffer Vacuum fill pens.

The proper tool to remove the nib is $90 or so plus shipping from Belgium (fountainbel here on FPN). It'll arrive in a couple of weeks. Dale at Pentooling has the split screw wrench for $10 plus shipping, or you can get a similar device from Laurence in the UK at the Pen Practice. David at Vintage Pens has the gaskets, etc., as do others like Ron Zorn, I think.

 

Importantly, listen to Dan44. I wouldn't do this as a first restore for love nor money, although I did a Conklin Nozac near my beginning.

 

Let us know if we can help further and let us know how it turns out. Bonus points for pics.

I have restored other lever fillers, and even if I mess something up too bad I still learned something. I have already taken out the nib, and the pen does not have a complex system like the one in the video so really the only thing I have to do is fix the packing unit.
