I started having water coming out of the top of the brewhead, so I opened it up, and there is a pretty good leak coming from here.  I took off the nut and the washer, but there is no gasket  to speak of.  Do I need to pull more off to find it, or is there something I can use to just seal up around the post.

Inside the boiler under each of the HE terminal there is one,
then there is the boiler o-ring
if you are getting in there I suggest replacing all three
and of course descale if needed
you can see them on our web page if you wish to do so.

Thanks,  now I see it. I found a schematic, but I didn't see the orings on there.  Now I do.  I guess I get to do some more tear down
.  I'll order those later when I get it a minute.

Is it probably worth changing the grouphead gasket too while I am tearing it apart?

I finally got the parts ordered, and got a few minutes to tear the machine apart to replace the o-rings.  In the process, I found this
