Posted Mon May 20, 2013, 7:46pm Subject: Silvia V2 Leaking - Please help
I've been searching for days and could really use some help. My Silvia V2 has started leaking in 2 places. One spot is clearly the OPV hose that goes from the reservoir to the OPV, which I'm trying to figure out how to replace. The strange little clamp befuddles me.
The second spot is a little more troubling. One of the boiler screws appears to have had water dripped on it or from it on the left side of the boiler, also near where the same OPV hose wraps around and is sheathed in black plastic mesh.
My questions here are
a) what is the chance both leaks are caused by the hose (I'm really hoping) b) can someone point me to a good resource as to how best to replace the hose? c) where is the best spot to buy a replacement hose?

The hose is leaking because cracked or is actually the OPV that is opening? the hose clamp can be simply remove with a squeezing of a pliers then ether re cut the hose to a nice straight edge or rebuild the OPV
the boiler bolts sometimes they come loose so it might need just a little turn (BE CAREFUL NOT TO OVER TIGHTEN them) but I've seen silvia boiler with so much scale inside that are pushing out and make the o-ring between the 2 halves useless,
parts available on our web page as in many others vendors
