Your gun is set when the air is set to the spec on the gun (use the gauge on the gun, not on the wall) or in the instructions that came with the gun, and the fluid wide open. Set it that way, leave it that way. I never change the adjustments in my gun. If the pattern is to big I use a smaller gun. A major advantage of HVLP is that you set them and forget them.

"and the fluid wide open." should read pattern and fluid wide open. I realize that some will disagree with that statement, but I have success using a touch up gun for small items rather than repeatedly adjusting the large gun to fit the smaller parts. In fact I use the touch up gun 95% of the time. The large one is used only on the chassis and the sheet metal if needed. I don't use the cheap guns as I would rather pay the expense for a good one, use it for years and buy repair parts as needed. I have not used 2150 or any other alkyd enamel. Directions for quality paint are very specific, with the PPG I use, the mixture is given exact and does not need to be messed with. The only thing that needs to be changed is the reducer, which in PPG Omni is 3 ranges. I never change the amount. I would rather paint than mess with guns and mixtures.
