51Vac problem

I picked up a 51 Demi Vac and now that I finally got it flushed out, I have found a problem when I inked it. When I start to write it leaves a blob of ink after 1-2 letters. It draws ink like it is supposed to and doesn't leak out the plunger. Need some ideas as to probable causes.

Is it a redband filler or no? With the original design, you were supposed to hold the plunger down when removing from the ink to prevent this. Here are filling instructions for both.

Cheaper than ink
Air leaks usually cause blobbing. You should go through the pen and replace the diaphragm if you don't have any history on it.
