Wagner paint sprayer
I have an old Wagner model 200 paint sprayer that I have lost the atomizer valve. I have not used this thing in years and was wondering if it still worked.I put some water in the cup and the pump runs but it will not pick up the liquid. I know the atomizer valve breaks the paint down into a mist but should it spray a straight stream without the valve? Mine will not spray a stream. Before I purchase the valve I was wondering if anyone can answer this?
