Type Fountain pen part (not complete pen) .... is an option, you can choose to have us install the sac for an extra $5 (see the pulldown menu)
Product Name Vacumatic filling unit
Manufacturer and Year This came from a Vacumatic from the 1940s
Compatibility This type of filling unit was used in various sizes of Parker Vacumatic (all but the Maxima), and the Parker 51 Vacumatic pens, both demi and full sized.






Excellent condition with no damage that would impair its ability to function. The weakest part of these filling units is the plastic pellet socket, which frequently is cracked or chipped or even missing from pens found "in the wild." The pellet socket on this unit is in excellent condition. There's a little pitting on the aluminum parts, but you can't see those parts once the sac is in place and the filling system installed.

In order to complete the repair of your Parker 51 or Parker Vacumatic, you'll need a special wrench and the right rubber sac for your pen. If you look up "Vacumatic repair" on the web you'll find plenty of guidance on how to do it, but be advised it is not a particularly easy repair.

We have a few of these and the photos below are of just one of the ones we have for sale. Yours will look as good as this one, though the plastic piston may have a slightly different color.

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you. If you decide you don't like the nib after you've inked a new pen, we'll refund 75%. (There will be no such charge for a pen that is pre-owned, provided you return it in the condition received.)

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
