    Put 10 paper plates out one foot apart--and catch the granules as a test. Count or estimate the granules.
    The adjustment puts the granules closer or farther away from the center of the platter.
    In theory--near the center stays on the platter longer--and granules fly to the left.
    Near the outside--particles fly to the right.

    Feel free to partially cover holes with duct tape or bits of plastic held with a screw. Loosen the screw and move it left or right to adjust the flow from that hole.

    Having issues with spraying with my wide nozzles.

    - PSI is constant, doesn't go up or down when the lever is pulled
    -no liquid at all comes out
    -other two nozzles work fine (trim and agitation)
    - filter is fine
    -doesn't appear to be any obstruction in the hose

    Any thoughts?

    Did you remove the nozzle and check it, open the lever with the nozzle off

    still nothing comes out with the nozzle removed. I would look for a kinked hose plugged hose is the lever that controls the wide spray broke

    Hoses are fine. I'm thinking it must be the valve.

    Sounds like time to start pulling it apart, does that lever feel funny

    A little loose but the piston appears to be pulling up enough to open.

    there isn’t much to it at that point in the system. It’s the last valve in the manifold and a straight shot to the Nozzle tee so i would check the hose barb coming out of that valve And the tee. Do you run urea or other dry products?
