Russel, I didn't dream about that E61 lever. It's the Salvatore E61 Lever.  Here is a link to it.

That isn't going to solve you channeling issue (and they aren't e61s, that's a specific HX group model unrelated to piston based espresso machines).  You should try increasing you dose, easing up on the grind, and dropping the Fellini move for a bit. You shouldn't have to resort to the Fellini move to get a full shot (a little less than 2x dose weight), if your dose/grind/tamp are on the puck will saturate and the group will fill while you hold the lever up.  With a clean LP it should be abundantly clear when water is filling the group and when it has finished.

Russel, my bad, the Salvatore is a semi-automatic with lever activation. Too much information and not enough knowledge.

Frank, don't beat yourself up. I've moved a dozen posts from the "Lever Machine" Forum that were questions regarding lever activated machines.

Hey no worries.  It was actually inaccurate of me to characterize the e61 as an HX group.  These days there are several DB machines that (I believe) use actual e61 groups.
