Just replaced the ink pump, dampers, capping station in my Roland Fj-52 and noticed there was a lot of ink in the pump jar. is this normal during replacement of these parts? This is my first time for replacing these ink parts! I need some advice !

Simply replacing these parts and then running a few cleans to prime the pump and dampers, no. I would expect there to be 20-30 ml but not much more than that... maybe 3/16"-1/2" of ink in the bottle.

When you say "alot" how much of the jar is filled, 1/2, 3/4 ??

Did you do a pump up by any chance after to get the dampers filled?

A pump up runs for a timed period and will waste a pile of ink.

Had close to 2 ounces in the jar...

If one line was off the damper it might have let enough air into the print head to cause a drain on the other colors. I know in the past when I had taken a damper off the print head and moved the heads off the capping station that the heads would drip. I am not sure how much they would have dripped if left un capped.

I can't see just the ink in the head (black only) being 2 oz so it must draw on the other two (c and M) and cause them to drain as well.

So I would say it had to do with the damper being removed from the head.
