Yes I did. I emailed them, and still no response. But I was able to get it all figured out with the help from Ed & Chuck. The Nib was pinching the cartridge, so I filed it down on the inside, so the cartridge would pass smoothly. but the bottom barrel was also a hair to short. I guess I trimmed the barrel too much/ inserted the mid section that attaches to the transmission too much. I got a transfer punch, and slowly hammered it back out, until I was able to get it to move open/close smoothly. I would literally say it took a width of 2 hairs to get it to work.

Thank you all for your help! I don't know what I would have done without you guys!

I was happy to have a look at it. It's fun to diagnose by process of elimination. Even though the results are not always to your liking.
