      Not to worry. If there's one thing I've learned it's that I can do
      anything wrong and often over and not much happens that can't be
      fixed. Here's where I got to yesterday: Put the new pump in place.
      I just have to replace the collar on it now.

      http://ph.groups.yahoo.com/group/BUG-is-Bunn/photos/view/d114?b=71

      I still haven't attached anything to the boiler. I'm sort of working
      in the other direction for now.

        Okay, I lied. I'm still completely paralyzed. So, here's what I need
        to know. If I remember correctly, the last thing I did was take the
        boiler itself out of the framework by unscrewing the plug at the
        bottom that holds it into the frame. It was tight getting it out.
        So, I'm guessing that even though it might be easier to attach parts
        to the boiler before putting it into the frame again, that I might not
        be able to do so once I got them attached. Tex? Tex? Tex? Give me
        a hint here so I can get off my duff and back on track. This is a
        hell of a way to spend New Years Day....staring at copper spaghetti....

              Smartypants....I've been mumbling to myself on here all day. But, I
              finally got it: you get your posts all in one long email at the end of
              the day rather than every time I hit the "send" key without thinking it
              over. Lucky you.

              Well, since you asked, the boiler is in the machine and the two
              thickest of the copper pipes are installed (one from the top and one
              from the bottom of the boiler, both to the middle of the back of the
              front panel). I'm not sure if it was the right thing to do, but I did
              use a bit of food grease on those fittings since they seemed pretty
              gritty and unwilling to screw back together after their citric acid baths.

              Doesn't seem like much for a days work, but I'm just that much farther
              along. Tomorrow I'm heading off to find a small bolt so I can re-attach
              the collar that holds the motor to the pump. And...that's that for today.

              Thanks for asking. I got tired of talking to myself today.
