      I've got the full line-up as spares... But... I don't know that they are necessarily the correct pieces as the spring does not appear to be long enough that the cap would hold it in place... Same boat as you, was nothing there when I first took it apart so nothing to compare it to. I ended up ordering the new style line-up. Same deal, doesn't seem tall enough that the cap would keep it in place. I installed it anyway and I guess given the water pressure should always be 'pushing down' on the line-up, perhaps that is enough to keep it in place... I've pulled probably 60 shots with it since I installed the new jet line-up and it seems to be staying happily where it belongs.

      Opened up the group head to discover it is missing the following

      11 .... Spring ............ ......... ......... ..... 23589.0000
      12 .... Filter screen ............ ......... ....... 23588.0000
      13 .... Holder, filter screen ............ ........ 23587.0000
      14 .... O-ring ............ ......... ......... ..... 23586.0000
      15 .... Hex, seat group solenoid ............ ..... 23585.0000

      Anybody got spares?

I adjust the pump in both directions up and down and it does not change the pressure coming out. I will take the pump apart again today and make sure I have no assembly issues. Any other ideas?

I had to get a couple of the M4 Hex Heads for the the lever controls and more teflon tape to be safe. I did not paint my pump or the "L" bracket for the computer mount will get to that soon.

I have an idea he will ship out my parts early next week, maybe=:-) I beleive he said he would start them Monday but they are prepped and just need the final coating. I can't assemble anything until I get the panels back as the top piece he has is integral when assembling the water and steam valve, but so is the back splash panel which holds the dual boiler guage and the main switch...

I have decided to use the stainless steel can softener the PO shipped with my machine, the one with the resin in it. At least fior initial testing out in the garage. If and when the machine makes it into the house, I just might go with a Chris Coffee canister softener system, but that's down the road. All I need to do besides add salt and flush it, is figure out the hose that fills it with water, and that's really a no brainer. I just need to buy a couple plumbing fittings (home depot) and a water supply hose
