I'm in the middle of rebuilding a pre-milenium LP p16, one of the down sides was the heating element "death"
I was looking for some non OEM options to avoid 150$ xDD and i finally found this
I make some modifications to keep a little part of the old resistor because I don't have welding machine
First I cut the old element,
Then and very carefully I drill the 10mm holes using of course different sizes of drills ( 2, 4 , 6 , 8 , 10 )
I use some power control unit to reduce the RPM of the driller to avoid deformations on the holes.
now Its time to clean everything and mount the new one
And some leak and temperature tests
And heating element DONE ! !
1.0 Bar Perfect ! !
I've read lot's but until I burned myself I cant believe how HOT it gets ! !
Now I'm waiting for the new brass piston to complete the full gasket upgrade
Thank's guys for this outstanding forum
