Thanks for the reply. I did check the photos and they were very useful when I took the clavietta apart. As Oscar said in his post, the washers were not an exact fit and moved around in the slot holding them. This caused the washers to leak occasionally. I solved the problem by buying tiny o rings that partially filled the slot, then the washers fit snugly with no leaks (after some adjusting). I did not replace the washers on the black keys as they were still doing the job. I finally got to actually play the Clavietta about an hour ago and it does have a sweet sound. Thanks for your suggestions
