Title:

Disassembled portafilter & now my shots are not calibrated properly.

Text:

I disassembled the portafilter to clean it because one of the spouts was not pouring. After I cleaned it and put it back together the spouts now pour properly but the shots have no crema and they're really weak. One contributor here said, "It is impossible to put one of these back together. They can only be assembled by machine. Once you take it apart, its broke; unless you want a non-pressurized porta-filter." Henry H, replied that he had, "disassembled, cleaned/repaired and re-assembled...with no ill effects." I don't know exactly whats wrong but the portafilter seems to have lost pressure. If it's possible to re-assemble the portafilter properly could anyone instruct me how?
