Air pressure, normal everyday gun you will want at least 50lbs air pressure at the gun - and there are inline pressure gauges that will go on the end of the gun for pressure adjustment & to read the pressure. As far as paint, if you have a viscosity checker, use that, otherwise, make sure you have the proper thinner/reducer and or hardner in the paint since most paints you cannot spray without reducer cause they are too thick. If you have used the gun before and not cleaned it, it it likely plugged up and can be cleaned with laqquer thinner in most instances, and the metal guns can be left overnight in gun cleaner or gasoline if they are really plugged up and then cleaned with the lacquer thinner. hope this helps.

Driver side windsheld washer not spraying

Check the pipe feed under the hood for any kinks in the line.
Remove the pipe feed carefully and using a high pressure airline, blow back in the reverse direction of the water, back down the washer jet. This fine washer jet is prone to becoming blocked. If you don't have a high pressure airline, then you will need something very fine and flexible, yet stiff enough that when you insert it down the washer jet holes, it can disturb any blockage down there. Although I haven't tried one, you might use a yard brush nylon brush filament.

2006 mazda tribute.The battery has been replaced and the alternator is not putting out quite the correct voltage but isn't really bad yet I don't think. It's will start ok for 4 or 5 days

Your going to need to replace the alternator, it may be charging the battery slightly and enough to get through a few days of starting the vehicle, but you will need to get the alternator replaced.

check the fuel filter, it could be clogged,, try this , get some carb spray ,, spray it into the air intake,, while someone turns the vehicle over, if it runs as long as the spray is being applied, but stops when you quit spraying ( don't use to much , just do this as a test , ) then your fuel filter is clogged or the fuel pump isn't supplying a constant pressure of fuel, Now, if when the spray is being shot into the carb, and when the key is released into the run position and the vehicle stops,, your ignition is shot, and needs replacing

this is normal as there isn`t enough freon to keep the clutch on long enough to do anything thus lack of pressure in the system.also there won`t be enough freon and pressure in the system to show up any leak if there is one.

79 yamaha XS 750 crank no start

well here goes your problem probably in the float bowl area water sediment blocked low speed jets if you do not want to do a complete tearmore down just clean the jets and float bowl.
Use a carb cleaner soak the jets make sure you can see through them the small low speed jets specially.
if you have access to air blow the jets clean.
spray any passage ways with carb cleaner reassemble good luck.

I replaced the spray arm seal, but the arm still wont spin. I get water but not enough pressure to turn the top arm. The bottom arm works fine. Should the top arm turn easily when pushed by hand. It...

arms should turn freely. spray arms are only rotated by water spraying out from angled jets at end. check for blockage in spray arms - sweet corn and rice are the worst offenders. take spray arms off and run water in centre hole and see it runs out of all the jets freely
