    Hello, I have consistently been having a difficult time with my Mutoh Falcon and pinpointed the exact problem... Or at least what I believe to be the problem.
    The Magenta line seems to be harder to draw ink through... It prints fine then starvation occurs. It feels like that line has created a super suction in the line when manually drawing ink from damper or before the damper.

    I need advice on what to do next...

    I have done the following in attempts to fix this problem.
    -replaced the damper (twice)
    -drawn cleaning solution through the line and let it sit 24 hours... I had then both drew cleaning solution through the line, and pushed back cleaning solution into a bulk cart.
    -I have replaced the damper O rings

    It appears to be the line itself... So my question is how to go bout this, as never doing this before...

    Do I remove the magenta line replace the tube parts... what about the metal tube sections?

    Where can I find new connectors for the lines? Specifically the stuff used to join the tube to metal pipes?

    Thanks in advance everyone!
