Hi everyone! I am currently on a job and am experiencing something I've never encountered this bad. I am spraying SW Extreme block primer (it's my first time using this primer) using an x5 with a 310 FFLP tip. I do have the FFLP seat and seal (yellow) installed. I have used both a 100 gun filter and 65. No filter the gun clogs every pull. Both gun filters even with the machine dialed up to 3000psi I am still getting tails. Any suggestions? Maybe thinning? I should also add the tip is brand new first use. Machine as well is brand new and this is the first job with it. Thinner ran through it before use to clean pump out.

I recently had trouble shooting the rust scat poly through my 395 with a 310 tip . It was no problem from my 490 but the 395 wouldn't push it! So weird. That x5 if I recall is not a very powerful rig..

Hope this helps
