Finally getting my Stradivari back in action. Replaced the opv spring etc. Cleaned and serviced the group. All good, but I am having a bear of a time getting the steam assembly to move so I can replace it. The arm for the knob got bent as did the top part of the assembly. I can get the knob arm out just fine despite the bend. I just can get it to loosen from the boiler. I guess I need an extra arm if anyone has one laying around.

Edit to add details. I have the steam and vac valve wrench from Stefano's. Boiler is not bent. Looks just same as my other LP. I assume it is just calcified.
