I paid $50 for a La Pavoni Pub V that had an external pump and came with the matching La Pavoni grinder.

Two questions:
1- Does anyone have a wiring diagram for this machine, after I find a pump I will need to wire it in.
2- What diameter group head does this model have because I also need to get a portafilter.

Any other advice about using this machine would be welcome as well.

still some parts available
some other ones like the control box very very expensive if you can find one
the pump will need to be connected on the connector block where it says POMPA
2 wires doesn't matter which one goes in which one

It has been a year since I got the machine.  Everything I needed, which was only a few gaskets, and portafilters was found at EspressoParts.com.  

After I got a portafilter, single, double and blank baskets, I used it for about 4 months making 1-3 16 oz americanos and occasional mochas for my family.  It is very forgiving for grind, you can get crema with almost any grind.  But once you get it right, the flavor really improves.  In all the time I have used it, only once did I have to wait for it to get back up to temp.  That time I had 6 friends over and they wanted 16 oz mochas. If I would have worked a little slower, I'm sure the machine would have kept up.

One of the things I found is that espresso machines use the same pumps/motors that are frequently used for soda/pop dispensing machine carbonators.  So search eBay for a carbonator pump- it will probably work if it has a pressure relief valve.  The other think I learned is that these pumps DON'T LIKE to be run without water because they have very soft bearing surfaces.  So if you look for one, and the seller says it was tested, make sure they didn't test it without plumbing it in.

I am so pleased with this machine, that when another one came on the market, I bought it for a backup.  This one I had to pay $150 for, it came out of a home that had bought it new.  I'm drinking an americano that I made with a triple basket, pulled 4 ozs of espresso, poured over hot water from the machine and still have a thick crema head on top. Thanks to the help from this forum I have a great espresso machine.
