The title says it all folks.  I have a customer who acquired an old 4 group with bolt-on (not studded) groups that were assembled incorrectly and leaked badly.  I was attempting to re-gasket the groups, and found that A) the bolts were way over torqued and B) after removing said bolts the groups had been glued down as well - F@$%!!!!!!.  The left one is working though.  I haven't exhausted my search, but thought maybe someone here might know someone with the part.  Any help appreciated.


I have learned something that I'll share - if you find yourself late at night with a Linea boiler in need of capping, you can use a PRV filled with JB Weld as the threads are the same as the comp fitting on top of the boiler.  


Oh and a big thanks to Mike Sabol for calling me in the middle of the night.
