Maintenance parts for Rancilio Z9 lever
just wondering if anyone knows if there is a precision shower screen (IMS or similar) for a Rancilio Z9 (manual spring lever group)? I've looked around and couldn't find anything so then called CoffeeParts who also aren't aware of any precision shower screens for any manual lever groups. This seems odd to me but perhaps there's some reason peculiar to manual spring levers that a precision screen is not needed? As far as I have managed to find out, the group on this machine is the same as La San Marco groups...
Also, seems the only group seal available is a generic rubber seal. Anyone know if the Cafelat silicon seal will fit? The size difference (according to CoffeePart's listing) is the OD of the Cafelat is 1mm bigger than the generic seal.
Lastly, I want to get a bottomless p/f to fit this same machine. Will a Pesado suit ok (diameter, lug arrangement, etc)?
Sorry for all the questions but very hard to find much info online about this particular machine - especially for consumable parts.
Thanks for the reply CafeLotta. Unfortunately, those screens are made for machines where the shower screen has to screw in (hence the hole in the middle). Most spring lever machines don't have that - the screen is pressed into place and held by friction and the group seal.
No worries, will remove the post so as not to confuse.
