I recall you over reduce at times to improve flow out.
I like to also cheat the temps and reduction a bit.
Not sure how much over reduction I can get away with.
Start with about 2%.

As I mentioned in another post . Anytime you over reduce you sacrifice gloss . If it doesn't show up immediately , it will show up just a few months down the road . For example : Kirker says that reducer should not be more than 10% of the total mix .

I would never ever go more than 2% over reduction. 10% is just asking for trouble.

Thoughts?
I "bought" these a year ago and have played with them a bit and finally sprayed some SPI epoxy with the large gun 1.4 tip. Worked awesome.

I say "bought" because I purchased a cart load of items at the time and when I got home and looked at the receipt they only charged me 0.39 cents for the kit. I would say that was one heck of a sale

I bought the 66222 and it came with a H827 gun in it. Do you have any information confirming your statement. When I take it back I figured I would need some facts to back up my claim. I can't find a non-hvlp gun on their site that looks like the one on the 66222 box.

For what it is worth, when I bought my 66222 HVLP gun at HF in Scottsdale, I found that three of the eight boxes on the shelf had no guns in them, just the cup and requlator. I called the store manager over and he told me that they have been having problems with customers either stealing the guns or swaping the more expensive guns for the cheaper ones. From what he told me, shoplifting at HF is a major issue.

After that I made it a point to check every box to make sure it contains what I think I am buying. Havent had any trouble with anything shipped from the online warehouse though.

I have both, the 43430 and the H827 and if you ever use the H827 gun you will realize very quickly it is not an HVLP, just a gravity feed gun. If it does not have "HVLP" on the handle it probably isn't.

Am I supposed to have a 43430? What gun did I pay for? Is the 66222 the number of the gun or the kit?

The 66222 is a newer version of the 43430, they are both HVLP spray guns. The 66222 is the same basic design as the 43430 - but has several parts that have been redesigned. For instance the needle is larger in diameter and the needle packing in the handle has been redesigned as well as the air cap.

The needle is enough larger than the 43430 that I don't think my 1.7mm needle & cap for high build primer will work with the 66222.

As others have posted, if it doesn't have HVLP embossed on the handle, it is just a gravity feed gun.
