I wish there had been some sort of instructions, of what goes where. I also tore one of the piston seals when I was trying to get it into the group.
Very good rebuild kit, But Where is the Necessary Dow 111 Lube

Can't do a rebuild without Lubricating the seals,,, I Ordered a complete rebuild kit - No Lube????
Note from Cerini:
We will now add dow 111 to all orders + 10 new screws.
High quality stuff!

I debated getting this set, or a third party set that's available. I'm so glad I went with this one! The teflon heating element and group to boiler seal are especially excellent. I assume they'll last for a very long time. It seems like Olympia is doing a great thing by making the seals on the inside of the machine maintenance free. I only wish they included a teflon washer for the safety relief valve for older machines. But a La Pavoni one works great, so I'm all set!

We are working on adding it in the next few months.
All good except...

So far I replaced several gaskets on my '87 Cremina but had trouble replacing Olympia Upper Piston Rod Seal for Cremina 67 & Newer. Couldn't get the lever rod to pass through the opening. I had to leave the old one in.
Answer from Cerini
The issue is not with the gasket.. Of course, it's harder to get the new gasket in and an older used one.. But we assure you the new gaskets are 100% compatible, and work

It was time to replace the piston gaskets in the Cremina which I finally got around to this weekend and I must confess OEM gaskets are IMO better than OE replacements. What I have notice is less channeling and what feels like more vacuum on the upstroke possibly from a better fitted seal. The extra money is worth it.
