]]]I have a Pre-Millenium La Pavoni Europiccola 8 cup and was wondering if the drip spout is removable on the porta filter???

 On the newer models--They seem to screw on and off  and this one looks like it does not have any threading and I don't want to force it or break it.

Any help is greatly appreciated

They do screw on, but sometimes they are really hard to get off.
I have used a 1/4" drive socket extension (run it through from the side) to avoid marring the outside.

I tried that and  a 1/4 inch wont fit into the drip spout and I tried another piece of steel and it wont budge.  I don't want to break it so I guess I can only clean it attached.  It is really on there.

I am wondering if it isn't threaded at all??

My La Pavoni spout took quite a bit of wrenching to get it off.  I used a leather lined tabletop vice to hold the spout while turning the portafilter counter-clockwise to remove mine, and have never put it back on.  A single central spout works out best for my espresso since the Pavoni shots are small to begin with.
