Hi, so I recently purchased this from you guys for my old espresso gaggia 16002 ( http://www.amazon.com/Gaggia-16002-Espresso-Machine-Black/dp/B0000CFET5/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top ) and am having some trouble fitting this attachment. I assumed after reading all the other questions, that it would fit almost all old Gaggia's out there with a metal steam arm, so I went ahead and bought it. However, since my steam arm already has the upper housing section and gasket/o-ring attached (like this: http://coffeesnobs.com.au/Attachments/DSCF4802.JPG ) It's becoming apparent that this isn't going to fit :/ Any tips or solutions?
The picture is quite blurred but have you examined closely to see if that fitting is made up of two pieces suggesting a collet type fitting that can be removed. :)
Try grabbing the top of it it and pushing up and see if it reveals a rubber o-ring gasket underneath. If so, slide the o-ring off first.
