CHOOSING THE CORRECT SPRAY GUN FILTER
Use the proper gun filter based on the tip size being used.
EFORE YOU PRIME THE SPRAYER
Before priming, squirt a teaspoon of separating oil (P/N 0279920
included with unit) into the indicated area. Light household oil
can be substituted if necessary. Do not put more than a
teaspoon into the lubricating area. Too much oil will leak down
into your paint.
All units are performance-tested at the factory and are shipped
with test fluid in the fluid section to prevent corrosion during
shipment and storage.
• Whether you are going to spray latex or oil-based
paints, this fluid must be purged and thoroughly cleaned
out of the system (follow Purging and Priming the Pump
steps, page 7).
If the pump has already been used you will need to purge the
water or solvent used in cleanup and storage.
