If I read the picture of the tag correctly, that machine is a 1993
production unit.
I restored a Faema 3 group a couple years ago. It's a tank! These
older machines do require some detective work, but they run
wonderfully!

Awesome looking restoration, BTW...

cheers,

Scott

> Well just started a full restoration on a Fiorenzato Fenice Elletronica 2G espresso machine. A local restaurant liquidation center had an add for this on ebay and I guess because there is basically NO info on this machine here in english or anyplace hardly, no one bid on it.. I picked it up for $400 locally! with its 2 e61 style groups I figured for this money If it was totally destroyed I could get money back out for the groups alone! but come to find out after initial testing IT WORKED! and didnt leak but had some definite problems... ( bad rotary pump, pressurestat, OPV,Boiler Safety Vale just to mention a few! ... Fortunately this is one of those very sweet SIMPLE machines old school with ALL top quality commercial parts! Im happy! lol so.. on inspection I decided to make a full restoration since this machine was totally TOTALLY neglected! this says something for the machine though because with such abuse, it still worked! and didnt leak! had enough scale to seal it up nicely! lol so here it goes!
