Tekna.prolite users help me out

Hey fellas I need some help, last week I got the tekna prolite & some spi high solids universal clear.I sprayed a panel with it & was happy.I'm just wondering if any of you guys who have this gun can can give me some advice on how to dial this gun in correctly.I usually run my comp which is w 60 gallon wide open @ the wall with 50 ft of 3/8 & a 3ft whip hose.
Ill be using the te 20 cap & 1.4 tip.The gun will mainly be used for the spi uni clear & base maybe once in a great while base as I have 2 flg4s for that.So please what adjustmeants shall I start out with & how many psi does this thing need @ the wall & gun to flow the clear out nice & wet.It did well right out of the box.I have a minor resto I have been doing on a truck & will be spraying it in a day or so mom always said if you don't ask questions you won't learn anything..
Sorry so long & for such poor grammar & puncutuation.

first off...... do you have the little desicant filter at the gun? if not get one...
second ....if you have a screen in the cup get rid of it it only restricts the flow of the paint from the cup.....
Now your ready to set up the gun ....
Sorry, I cant help with that I do it by ear and the way the paint is flowing that particular day ,my gauge is so covered with years of overspray I cant even SEE the needle....Just remember the settings are different for everybody so once you find the gun pressure,thats just a starting point You will have to find what works best for you on your own...
