Boy, sure been having a bad run there ol mate :o. I havent really pulled my Mokita apart more than once really, and that was at the time I fitted a PID controller for Boiler Temp Control and just took advantage of the opportunity to give everything a really good clean-up 8-). Havent waved a spanner at it in anger since really..... Well, apart from the time I was going to try and retro-fit a Silvia Wand. This turned out to be a waste of time though as the Silvia Wand is just too different in shape and length to be a simple exchange.
Anyway, back to the problem at hand. Its an easy exercise to replace the PF Gasket once you get one, just remove the Group Shroud again give it a good clean and then remove/replace the gasket while its off, then replace Shroud. The Gasket can go on either way, theres no right or wrong orientation. The best place to get a new Gasket or three, is from Lygon Imports in Melbourne who import these machines and all the spare parts. Ive never had any luck trying to deal with them via e-mail but a couple of CSers rang them direct with their requirements and found them to be extremely helpful and courteous. They dont mind dealing direct with the consumer so feel free to give them a call. From their website here... http://www.lygonimport.com.au/index.php , their phone number is (03) 9486 1572.
All the best,
