THIS KIT INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING

- (LF1460202) Precision 56.5mm Group Head Screen - Non-welded - CA_34
- (MZ_5110) La Marzocco New Version Group Head Shower Screw
For the gasket
- Always use a silicone lubricant such as food safe white grease. Silicone does not like petroleum based grease
- When installing do not use a sharp screwdriver to push them in, the silicone will break. Use the portafilter with the basket removed to install
- No need to crank the portafilter tight in the machine as you would a hard EPDM rubber (the industry standard) gasket
For the screen
- It is critical that these screens are installed carefully
- Over-tightening the screw will result in warping the screen, and over time (some months) the screen will not seat properly, potentially causing channeling
- Install the screen with the screw tightened just enough to be held in place, then dispense water through it, inspecting the water flow as it passes through the screen
