I would pour a little thinner in it and see if it sprays OK or spits and sputters . Most of the cheap ( under $40) guns I have used did not work very well brand new .
I do use the $50 - $75 guns for painting wrought iron on a daily basis with decent results . Personally I would not buy mineral spirits if it was $1 a gallon . Xylene , Toluene , lacquer Thinner all work well for cleaning and thinning .
You probably need 50 psi + but the higher pressure will atomize the mixture for a smoother coat . 90 psi is my preferred pressure but the thickness of the paint and volume coming out all need to balance out .
Paint from the top down and blow the overspray ahead of the area you are painting . If your overspray blows on top of what you just painted it may become fuzzy .
Prep work is the biggie , clean the rust , prime the bare spots , lightly sand or use a liquid sander to prep the surface . Paint sticks to properly prep'd old paint better than new primer .
I'll bet there are a lot of videos on the web that will help .
