Silca plunger washer

Can someone tell me how to remove the leather plunger washer in the barrel of the Super Pista? I have a new one I want to put in, but last night I was baffled by the bolts. Can't seem to find a way to get them off.

Thanks.

If you go to the Silca website here: http://www.silcapompe.it/pista_en.htm

You can see a download link for the maintenance manual in .pdf format which has a real nice exploded view on page 8.

Thanks for the link. Changeover was a snap. Now with new rubber and leather washers, my Super Pista is as good as new.
