Hi, I have an Oscar that needs to be plumbed in.  I have not been able to locate any instructions online, I have not worked on an espresso machine before, and need help confirming where the water supply should be attached to the Oscar.  I can see where I think it is, but want to be sure.  Any help will be much appreciated thanks.

under the machine, connection thru the middle hole
6mm tube push in or screw in connection for direct connect machines
the brass part can be connected to the pump barb or mounted to the base plate
should have a inline pressure regulator, so that pressure to the pump is under 2 bar

Thanks.  I don't have the screw on piece so will need to get one I suppose, but I connected a plastic pipe to it and with just a bit of gravitational pressure it worked fine, so will get the right bits and do it properly tomorrow.  Many thanks!!

He is the best and has turned pour overs into plumbed.  I wish we had had time for me to shoot that process as well.
