The how-to video on Seattle Coffee Gear says you have to remove the corrugated washer that sits between the machine vertical valve support and the new valve, or the valve won't sit in the exact right position for the wand to track properly through the hole, an it exits the machine innards.
I had a stainless "Rocky/Silvia" base so, the wand fit very well into my pitchers without additional height modifications, but if you don't have the base or something similar, maybe you want to use a small footprint, thick butcher block or other standoff to raise the machine from the counter. This will also depend on which pitchers you are using, since they come in different sizes.
