Posted Sat May 3, 2014, 2:06pm Subject: Re: Gaggia classic + Rancilio V3 steam wand installation HELP!
You cannot fit the Rancilio V3 steam valve or wand onto a Gaggia without extensive modifications , the rancilio company maybe thought you were trying to fit a V3 wand onto a V1 or V2 Rancilio Silvia, in which case you would need the V3 steam valve also . I'm afraid your best option with the Gaggia is to fit a V1 Rancilio wand, which is still a big improvement over the stock gaggia wand
The nut on 49 is attached to the copper down tube and should not turn as you remove the threaded part on the old wand. Silvia V1 wand looks about like the Gaggia wand at the insertion end and will use the O ring 50 and the nut. The O ring 50 will likely stay up in 49.
