Swapping Nibs (And Feeds) Between Pilot Custom 74 & 91

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I decided to swap the Medium nib from Custom 74 & the Fine-medium (FM) nib from Custom Heritage 91. This has been discussed at length before, as many Pilot models use the same size #5 gold nibs. My question is whether the feeds should stay with their original grip sections or go with the original nibs.

I understand that in theory the feeds should be identical (and they do look identical), but they do feel a little different when mated to the other nibs & grip sections. Is it possible to generalize on what would be the best approach? Are feeds & grip sections individually mated or are feeds and nibs or does it all depend?

Thank you

I don't think it really matters. I have swapped between Pilot 74,91,92. Actually if you want you can just moved the section between the 74 and 91. Those two pens are a bit mix and match. The 92 is piston filling and I think when I moved the nib from my 91 to my 92 I kept the feeds paired to the nib but not sure. I might have just moved the gold nib.

 

Try it and if you develop a leak in the section then do it the other way keeping the feed mated to the section.

It doesn't matter, the nibs and feeds are 100% identical besides the plating on the nib.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
