La Cimbia Junior D restoration
i'm new to coffee machines restoration. i found an old (20 year old?) la cimbia junior d, it is a bit rusty, very dirty and heavily scaled.
a few questions:
1 - how do i clean it, especially the hollow parts (boiler, head, pipes and tubes)?
2 - where can i find missing/broken parts over the web - mainly gaskets and the bolt that connects the heat exchange tube to the head?
3 - any other hints, tips and tricks will be welcomed.

Hello and welcome!
Yes coffeeparts have great service and heaps of parts available. You might need to look under Faema for the E98 group, as the Cimbali pages show a different design. The schematics are very clear so you can see which is yours.
There are several threads of people restoring/fixing this machine and other similar ones. Do a search and you will find a wealth of info.
