E61 Drain Valve Leak
I have a Magister Stella with an E61 group. When I got it, it was leaking from the drain valve during extraction & when back flushing with a blank.
I've pulled it all down, replaced all 3 plungers in the head & cleaned all the other parts. I've checked the seats the plungers seal to, they appear clear of debris & scale.
It still leaks. I'm all out of ideas.
Does anyone have any ideas of what I can do?
Hi Simmo- check the lengths of the pins on the group pistons you have replaced as there are slight variations in length and they do matter.
