It does not have to be removed to get the cam to go back into place, but it does make it easier. i don't remove it.

i believe you need a 36mm wrench

Thanks! Ended up running out to Home Depot and getting adjustable pliers (or whatever they're called)

Some electrical tape to cover the teeth and off I went

Hopefully I did it right. The cam fought me a little bit, but everything is tight and smooth now. One thing that concerns me is that there is about a 1mm gap between the lever and the cam cover. No idea if it was like that before, but everything seems to be tight so I can't imagine it's wrong.

I've not had good luck using adjustable wrenches in terms of scratching the stainless. i broke down and bought a metric service wrench set from harbor freight.

I confirm the gap so no worries there :D

Watch that gap when your brewing around 9 bars, you'll see it widen as the spring in there compresses.

Thanks all

Next, I installed the IMS shower screen and Cafelat gasket

The shower doesn't seem to be as dispersed as I thought it would be, and I'm getting a debit rate of 180ml/30 sec - anything to be concerned about here?

The dispersion is definitely something I want to figure out, as I'm getting channeling and dark puck spots even with good puck prep
