Parker 95 - Loose Nib

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I've just taken delivery of a Parker 95 and on gentle dismantlement for proper cleaning, discovered that the nib/feed are falling-out loose.

When in proper alignment with the hood, the nib will come partially out with a gentle tap on the back of the section, although it feels somewhat firmer when off-centre.

Looking into the hood, the air-channel is at approx 8:00, which doesn't seem to be right, looking at the nib/feed.

 

I don't want to in mob-handed with a screwdriver or similar and try to rotate things without knowing exactly how (damage ahoy!), and I don't want to write it off and buy a replacement shell just yet when it feels like it should be fixable.

So, I've made some progress and figured out what's the cause, just still not sure how to go about treating it:

Now, if I could figure out how to rotate that slot to the 12:00 position, I'd be golden, I think.
