    Coffeeparts sell a range of cafelat group seals. Perhaps one of them will fit a LSM head

    Hi and thanks
    I contacted the boys there and they don't have silicon ones - only rubber
    Cheers

    Might be out of luck...as far as I know Cafelat does not produce silicone gaskets outside of the 58 mm groups (not economically feasible due to the small user base)...

    Dave... you sure they even make silicon ones ? I can find plenty of rubber ones but no mention of a silicon one for the Leva machine. A mob in the UK sells service kits for the San Marco (suitable for the Leva) but these are all rubber gaskets.

    They might only be rubber as this will allow for more force applied when sealing (possibly a good idea with the pressure from the Leva).

    Cafelat does offer silicon seals for non-E61 groups. Eg https://www.coffeeparts.com.au/80008-s
    however Dave has already checked with CP.
    Ps this is an Izzo thread so we are off topic.
