Ahh... my bad.. mis-read that... Weephee... it would help if you could attach photos of the compass in question... You might want to read CD's post on posting photos. Unfortunately, his method, which is the better, preferred method, requires that you have at least 10 posts...so go over to the Song Thread and post there a few times to get your count up to 10.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

If you look to either side of the shroud on the inside you will see 2 screws that will release it. Message me and I will send you breakdown diagram of compass. Hope this isn't to late!

Before you send it anywhere, Turn It Upside Down, and quickley return upright and see what happens to the bubble.

These compass models are filled with Purified Mineral Spirits while the the compass is upside down. This fills the space under the card with fluid. When turned upside down the bubble will be trapped under the compass card, replacing the fluid there now.
If any of the nylon screws get messed up, you can find replacements at Automotive Stores nuts and bolts section and look for nylon.


If turning upside down doesn't work it means you will have to remove one of the nylon screws(Gently)and fill with the mineral spirits. If I could type faster I would relate the story of how I know you can find replacement screws at auto stores!
