Is there a video on programming a toro lawn master II timer

I have found these timers to be the most difficult for a homeowner to master. I suggest going to Toro's web site and downloading the operating instructions.

I just purchased a Vigoro zinc spike sprinkler . I want to set it to 360 degrees watering . The only instruction to do this is : Full circle : Left trip pin I've played with it a bit but have not hooked...

Lift completely up or down on the mechanism that allows for it to STOP against the setting pins. 360 is a full circle and if you can't spin the head all the way around, readjust the mechanism until it clears both the right and left stopping pins. Once you accomplish this and turn it on, you will have 2 options for traveling and return traveling. The trip lever can be moved to set that accordingly.

I have 2 Vigoro 196-036 watering timers. Why does water come out of the three holes near the battery compartment on one of them?

It comes out of the holes because the water goes in the holes. That might sound dumb but Vigoro designed these only to be in dry conditions, such as attached to the water line. I used them for sprinklers, but the water poured into the timer so bad it shorted it out in a week. I did find a vigoro timer with no holes and a sealed unit, and they work great. But I can't find them anymore.

Regarding the Vigoro Electronic Water Timer, Model 196 036: How do I program the timer to water every day, in the early a.m., then in the evening? Is the greatest hourly spread per day 12 hrs.? In...

I think you almost have it right, you can program how many hours apart.
4=6 x per day
6=4 x per day
8=3 x per day
12= 2 x per day
24=1 x per day
Then you set how long you want it to be on, but that can't exceed your hour setting. I believe these are the same timers as Melnor. You can go to their web site for manuals. If you really want exact timing, I'd get a quality electric timer, and then buy a electric valve such as you'd use for a sprinkler system.
