funny, I was at a similar point with a bad machine from ebay:
someone on alt.coffee pointed me to your site then.
like you I suspected that the plastic-thingy-inside-of-brass-tube
(#3 in your plan) was somehow blocking the flow. because it's so hard
to blow water through this part, even when everything else is open.
the only thing is that I cant get the darn thing out.
anyway thanks for your tutorial, lets see how far it gets me :-)
