Topic: Bricoletta parts (5 msgs / 100 lines)
1) From: Mike Koenig
A question for the group on espresso machine parts - This question is
probably better suited for the forums or home-barista, but I figured I'd ask
here first...
I've got worn cam followers in the E61 (lever) group on my Bricoletta
Volante.  Does anyone happen to know if this is a "Standard" E61 group head,
and could I buy parts designed for a Faema E61?  I'm having a bit of a
struggle finding Fiorenzato specific parts for this machine.  (apparently,
too frequent detergent backflushing, without lubricating the cam can cause
these to wear out quicker...  just a word of warning for anyone else with
E61 lever groups...)
Since I'm on the topic, does anyone also know where to get the seals for the
hot water and steam valves?
Thanks in advance,
--mike

I think I remember reading about worn cam followers on Home-Barista, check
there.

I replaced mine a couple years ago. On original retro garbage can skinned
Bric' not Volante. Unfortunately took the offending part with me to EP on a
run to pu greens in Auburn so don't have an electronic receipt, which would
have part number. Paper receipt two years later? Yeah right. Remember it was
not the first one they pulled out of parts though, mine was shorter, so
there are variations. NOW I really wish I had the pn, and wish you luck. Let
us know what you come up with. Mine is about due to be replaced again!

miKe,
Thanks for the reply... do you remember if you replaced the entire valves,
or just the brass cam followers?  I'm pretty sure I can get just the brass
followers, but I'm afraid I won't be able to remove them from the valves
(which would mean downtime for the machine, which is a Very Bad Thing...).
Thanks,
Mike
