    Default T valve spring replacement.

    I'm finding that I'm having a hard time tweaking the water to my wet headers. I have a ball valve before the T valve. The spring and ball in the check valve are just a few years old. I know you can put jets in the headers to restrict flow but I was hoping to change the spring to a stiffer one for a bit more control. Right now I'm trying to set the water to come in at 3k. Just trying to get a bit of mist. But it seems to go from nothing to too much by just opening the valve 2-3 degrees. Anybody else done this? What spring pressure is a stock spring? Any other springs for other applications that work?

    I used 3/8 AN SS washers to shim mine to get more spring tension, basically trial and error. I have 5 in mine and .080 jets in the #8 union at the water lines.
