    WTB E61 lever groups, complete

    Hi,

    I'm looking to convert one of my three group machines to fully manual operation and use minimal electronics.

    For that I want to swap the standard E61 solenoid groups for manual lever groups.

    I can offer the three solenoid groups off the machine in part trade for three manual groups if that is of interest. I would be looking to spend between $200-300 per group.

    I know this is a slim chance but hopefully someone out there can help. I am located in central west NSW and can sometimes travel to Sydney or am happy to pay postage.

    Cheers

    I have one- but cannot reply to PMs due to some weird account thing. Email works though.

    One group has been sourced, awaiting Chris to see if he can find the one he had but if anyone else has one going cheap then I'm still interested.

    I'm also after a two group copper boiler, preferably with water level glass fittings in the left hand side (when facing the front). A three group machine is going to be excessive for what I need and I was going to shorten the standard boiler but if I can just get a 2 group boiler that will make it a lot easier.

    Hmmm, maybe. Would an old boiler that needs a bit of a clean be ok? Do you want the whole thing with the element as well? I realise price would depend on model and condition, but what's the ballpark you're willing to pay?

    Nope, flag that. Just found a photo of the boiler I have and it won't work. The machine is at work at the moment and I couldn't remember what it looked like. It's a 35yr old Boema and a bit antiquated as you can see.

    Thanks for the offer Leroy but yes, that one won't be suitable.

    For reference, it needs to be copper and dirty is ok as it will be polished up. If it's a CMA boiler with a diamond shaped element flange then I have an element to suit so that's what I would prefer.
