Subject: LM Portafilter Mod for Silvia
I know this has been discussed before and I have seen (I think) all of
the threads on this subject. I just need to know 'exactly' where to
file the ears down. In some of the threads, it was mentioned that when
not done right, the PF will be at the 7 oclock position tather than the
5 oclock. So, does that mean i shave off 3 mms from the wide side of
each ear?

I wrapped it in a towel and clamped it it a vise. Used a hand file, not
a grinder. Once you cut through the chrome, the brass files away
easily.
