    Default Senator President Help

    Hi

    I have bought a Senator President FP, and I have some issues.

    The pen doesn't fill, the ink flow out as soon as I get the pen from the ink bottle...make me thinking is getting some air.
    The section and nib unit looks good to me, but when I have tried to remove the piston...It looks like there is the problem.

    It seems like the ink is getting behind the piston gasket, and I cannot remove the piston. What to do?


    Thank you

    I have removed the piston, looks good to me.
    But there is an air leak behind the piston (whole assembled) when I have blow through the section (nib/feed removed).

    Does silicon grease help to seal properly? Anybody any idea?

    Yes, silicon grease is the way to go. I hope this solves your problem.

    I've got the silicone grease, but:


    I have broken the piston shaft!!! Is that fixable?

    At this point, I suggest having Francis fabricate a replacement part.

    That was my thought as well, replacement/re-fabricate the part...
