Funny how this goes.  All the rust, sanding, polishing, fixing the bents in the cage so that the fan blades move freely, rewiring etc and yet what seems to be the most simplest part...oil wicks causes the most issues :D
The old wick



And now after trying to replace them :D




I think the bottom one will be ok.  The top one well....may or may not.  Going to try and continue to align the other rings but getting closer.

If I can't get the first one corrected, is there any potential issues using a spring from a typical standard ink pen?  I noticed those springs are about the same in size as these. Just they are not copper or bronze.


Here is a pic, any issues you guys can think of by using this instead?
