Could this super leaky pull be due to fine grind size? Or is it more likely the replacement group head gasket I just installed? It did go in rather easily. Thanks.

It's leaking from inside again. Hose from boiler to knob. At the knob.

Watching the video, to me, looks like a group head gasket problem. Does the new gasket looks like it fits properly.
How tight did you lock in the portafilter?

As for the inside leak, I think the steam valve is a known issue with this type of gaggia, or at least for the Classic.
My valve drips too sometimes.

I'm going to order direct from WLL the correct GH Gasket. I need to find out how to get the hoses and correct clamps, too. I called a repair shop in my area and they wont mess with my little guy.

WLL had the hoses and clamps that I needed, so I replaced all of those and the New Baby is up and running. Two weeks thus far with no issues. Fingers crossed and I'm thinking a steam wand mod may be in it's future. Thank you to all who read and assisted!
