Have a silvia, I have her PID'd updated the steam wand to V3, added leds to her.  Makes very good espresso's.  Been searching around. Has anyone attempted or contemplated putting a Clever on a Silvia.  I am thinking of doing this to her.  
On a sidenote I also have 2 commercial machines, I take care of, we bought for work.  An Acorto 2000s and an Acorto 1500 s Elite.  Nice machines.

I am not sure what you are asking. Are you thinking of adding a "clever coffee dripper" onto a Sylvia????

NOW I understand what you are saying.
I am not aware of anyone doing this and I really do not remember anyone posting about it. If you feel the need to do this, take a lot of pics while modding your machine and make a thread on it so that perhaps someone in the future can see what and how you did it!

I guess you'd have to exchange the knobs as well as the whole valve assemblies. Never heard of anyone doing it, either. Why do you want to try?

Now why would you ask a question like that....LoL  Answer...Because we can.  Thats why we mod.  I mean if you have 10 grand you can go get a Kees Van der Westen Speedster, and not have to mod.  But I don't have 10 grand in disposable income for that.  a hundred bucks..why not.  When I do it I will post.  Thanks.  Here is a pic of my "coffee bar".
