    Ron, I absolutely agree. May I ask you which tool do you use to remove the clutches?

    I just used the pen and it wrote right away, with an undiminished flow. I'll keep using it from time to time and post the results here, so you know if the problem was really solved by changing the feed.

    I forgot to mention that—after what Ron said about a loose cap and the cracking of the inner cap—comparing the pen with another 51, I noticed that the cap clutch is indeed a bit loose. So this probably was the cause of the inner cap crack, as suggested.

    Stewart Hawkinson sells them. IIRC, the guys at Pen Practice in the UK sell them as well.

    I write to update this post. The pen has worked fine; it didn't have flow problems in the last week.
