Replacement seals for Pelikan 100 and 100N

Corkpiston seals for the classic Pelikansare not commercially available in precut form, and even for a skilledand experienced repairman, cutting and trimming replacement seals in cork is time-consuming work. Cork is also prone to shrinkage over time, yet if cut oversize, risks damaging thebarrel.

For some time now, we have been replacing cork seals with synthetic rubber O-rings. They are durable, easily installed, and operate with significantly lower friction than cork. We are now offering them for sale, in a package of a dozen. These are used in pairs, so each package is good for repairing 6 pens.

Installation is straightforward: once the filler mechanism has been removed from the barrel, either pull out the front retaining disk from the piston (if friction fit) or unscrew the retaining collar clockwise (reverse thread), depending on the construction method. Slide on a pair of O-rings, and apply silicone grease liberally in the gap between the rings.

The replacement seals are showninstalled in a Pelikan 100 with modern replacement demonstrator barrel ( 130343682427) above and below.

The seals will also fit early Pelikan 100N pens with piston seals originally of cork, as shown below.

NOTE: These seals will NOT fit Pelikan pens with pistons originally made to use synthetic (that is, non-cork) seals.

Synthetic replacement seals for Pelikan 100N, 400, 120, and 140 can be found here.

Use at your own risk -- early Pelikans are famously fragile, especially the barrels.
