 Bassoon problem

Hi everyone.
Last week I completely restored a Selmer Signet Soloist Basoon.
Everything looks and sounds perfect but from low E to low A.
Every time those notes are played with a bit more air, right away it "jumps" to the harmonic in the upper octave.
If pinky F# key is squeezed with something, like a rubber band or a wood wedge, the bassoon plays correctly.
The hole has been checked and refaced, the spring has been strengthened and I tried with both sheep skin and synthetic pads.
Nothing seems to solve the problem.
If a key were not sealing properly should not play well below low E (I think).
Any one has an idea on what can be happening?
I'm going crazy with it (a bit more)...
Thank you and hope someone can help me.
