Hunter adjustment tools?

    Not much hunter used around here. I have a system to work on tomorrow that has hunter rotors to adjust. What tools do I need, as I don't have a "adjustment tool" to use. Allen wrench, What size? what tool to adjust the arc?

    I guess I will just have my allen wrench set and some assorted flathead screwdrivers and hope for the best.

    The sprays are mostly weathermatic, I'd say they are junk, but they have lasted about 18 years in the sand and still work perfectly other than some are too deep now (going to raise and replace those), but still retract!

    That's one big fault I see with rainbirds, the wiper seal is TOO sensitive to any abrasion. The heads that have NO wiper seal on the stem almost seem to preform better that the ones that have them...

    Well thanks, but i have no access to anything like that anytime soon.

    One reason I like rainbird.. only need a simple flat blade screwdriver for all adjustments.

    Lacking any Hunter tool, you can use a 3/32 inch allen wrench and a regular flat-bladed screwdriver, and do everything but lift the head when dry.
