    No need to do the top nut. I bought a set of ring spanners to fit all the bolts, makes it easy and no risk of marking the chrome. I think from memory you need a 26mm for the nut in question for cleaning.
    Thanks Rob, I maybe ok as I don't get any of the symptoms of worn pins at least, its stiffer when cold but not sure if that is always the case, but lever moves nicely when warm and doesn't move etc as described in this article.
    I have ordered the moly 111 and poly puff cleaning stuff so will get on it this weekend, need to see if have big enough spanner to.

    I have let things slip, I know i emailed BB when I got it and they said not chemical clean to often if not using a lot, and read on here to often means more lubing etc, so the months have gone by! hope not done to much damage etc.
    Thanks

    On weekend, i did this finally. I undid the larger nut but should I of also undone the smaller one? I guess to grease shaft of the lever rod the cam is on end? I managed to grease cam ends and the end of the shaft, took a while to get cam back in properly.
    also i got the e61 blue cafelat seal 8.5mm it seems very very tight putting the portafilter now, it looked like it didn’t matter what way it went up, other was tapered.
    Thanks

    Tapered edge goes against the grouphead.

    Yes you should have undone both nuts, this allows you to remove the cam from the barrel and pull a rolled up piece of kitchen roll through to clean the barrel. You can also check the condition of the seals in the centre of the barrel. then relube seals and the cam shaft.

    My Cafelat blue one definitely has a taper on one side. This fits to the tapered edge of the screen just like the stock rubber one.

    Cafelat blue 8.5mm on my R58 too. Chamfered edge with writing on goes up against the lip on the edge of the shower screen and up inside the group. The flat edge is what seals against the basket.
