1st Gen L1 leaking at group head
I've had this machine for 4 or 5 years now.
When making a coffee (Lever Down) I'm getting several drips of clean water from the joint between the lever assembly and group head. Where the 4 hex head screws are.
It was intermittent. Maybe once a week. I use the machine 6 or so times every day. It's turned on sunrise to sunset near every day since purchase.
I replaced the group piston seals and thought that solved it. But after two months it did it again today. Cant imagine seals going bad that quickly.
To leak up like this, wouldn't all three seals need to fail?
Tough to see in the photo but there are drips there.
No lever skip and it catches consistently at the same angle.
Attached is a photo that kind of shows the drips.
Machine has been modified but not at the group head.
