Subject: Compatible Grouphead Gasket * Expobar E61 Grouphead *
I've just aquired an Expobar Office Leva. What other compatible E61
grouphead gasket will fit please?
Thanks,
Craig.

C:

there should only be slight variations in THICKNESS, other wise specs
should be similar.

Thanks Dave!
I got my answer 1day later on the CG forums from Tex. Tex Said: "I would bet
that any e61 group gasket would work. Look for anything with a 75/76mm
outside diameter, 56mm inside diameter & 8mm thick. Faema for instance."
That's exactly the same size of my/the Rancilio Silvia grouphead gasket
also.

I then checked EPNW & saw that they have the gaskets in 8, 8.5, 9mm & gasket
shims also, to account for variances in slight diffs in portafilter
dimentions &/or the group groove & where the portafilter handle lines up.
Cheers!
Craig.

The thickness will have an effect on how far the portafilter handle goes
around. A thinner one would allow the portafilter handle to go around
further, and as it ages and compresses, it might go too far.
