Not sure what the question really is. To fill a Legacy (angled endcap) or Legacy 2 (smooth conic endcap) fill you first turn the endcap counter-clockwise and then pull the tube out. The Legacy Heritage does not include the "Touchdown" type filling system.

If you mean to actually remove it from the tube it's attached to... I don't know. There's some sort of specialized tool required, it it's possible at all. The Legacy 1 system wasn't made with maintenance in mind.

Yeah, I really want to remove the tube on the blind cap. Can you give me the links that can show the specialized tools or the diagram of the Legacy I. Thanks for your kindness.

I'm sorry to say I've never seen the thing, if it actually exists. Ron Zorn or Richard Binder may have more useful commentary, having had a chance to interact directly with Sheaffer's repair department.

According to Ron Z there are two versions of Legacy with the TD filler. One has a blind cap that is glued on and almost impossible to remove without destroying the assembly. The other one has a plug at the end of the TD tube and you have to remove it to access a torx head to unscrew the blind cap.

Maybe Headrum if you tell us what you want to accomplish, the Sheaffer minds on the board can give you a few ideas. What you may want to do perhaps can be accomplished in another way. ☺

I have never seen any instructions for removing the TD filler from a Legacy. Do you want to remove it because it currently doesn't work and you don't mind permanently damaging it, or do you intend to put it back in whenever you've done whatever it is you want to do?

Quite correct. Better left alone if you can. If the pen isn't filling, try replacing the converter first. The regular squeeze converter will work - the only difference between that converter and the gold cased one is the case.
