        You have 2 options
        1) The easy one
        Take the old one to a place that sells group head seals and try to match it
        If you are not close to a shop take a photocopy and fax it to them

        Option (2) is to make one
        If you get a one that is close to yours from option 1
        Cut it to size


        In desperation I have made a seal for the group head/ porta filter for my uncles old shop machine just to keep it working until he got a spare

        I used a 1/4 inch piece of conveyor belt
        Ripped the top rubber layer off the sewn fabric
        Traced the old seal to it and cut it out

        Worked for him

          thanks kk

          when you say cut to size what do you mean?

          Ive not taken the seal out for ages for fear of irreparably damaging it, but the size is appprox 59mm x48mmm so its significantly smaller than any on the coffeeparts list,stingng so are you suggesting cutting a piece out of a similar diameter longer one?

          thanks

            Yep
            You can also try a gasket place
            http://www.segaskets.com.au/other/index.htm

            Or just get some sheet rubber that is heat rated and cut one from scratch
            as I did for the uncle
            No one will see it up there so you don’t have to be to pedantic about appearance but still do an acceptable job
            You can use a whole saw to drill the inside diameter first and use scissors to cut the outside
            Method
            Get a flat piece of wood drill guide hole
            Nail rubber at corners to secure
            Guide drill bit of whole saw into pre drilled hole and let the whole saw cut the rubber slowly (best if you also have a drill stand)

              A suitably thick O-Ring of the right dimensions would probably do a decent enough job as well....

                THANKS GUYS

                I SAW A AN ELEKTRA MICROCASA A LEVA IN A COFFEE SHOP TODAY WHICH REMINDED ME THAT I USED AN ELEKTRA SPRING TO REPLACE MY BROKEN ONE AND THAT THE PORTAFILTERS ARE THE SAME SIZE , THE GROUP IS SIMILAR SO ONE OF THEIR GROUPHEAD SEALS MIGHT FIT

                SO THIS IS WHAT I WILL TRY FIRST THEN ILL TRY AND MAKE ONE AS PER KKS INSTRUCTIONS

                            Wow! Pretty solid looking machine JAHH.... 8-)

                            Should have suspected this though, being a Bezzera

                              Yea nice machine Jahh
                              This Bezzera is just middle age (a little younger than me)
                              I would want to keep it going for another 40 years or so
