Devilbiss JGA with tip number 80 on front

I have an old Devilbiss JGA, and was planning on using it to spray primer on a car I'm working on. The recommendations for the primer is to use a 1.8 tip.

I have no idea what my tip is. It has the number 80 on the front (or, maybe 08?). Can I get a 1.8 tip? Where should I get that. Google search hasn't turned up anything for me yet.

JFYI...I plan to purchase a new gun for the color. Thinking about the Teckna Copper.

If you take off that cap, there should be a very small number on the side of the orifice.

You should be find spraying that gun if the setup is 1.4+.
Adjust your fluid nozzle to spray to spray to your liking.

I was just looking to use 1.8 because the HOK tech guy said to use that with the primer I'm using.

I pulled it and looked at it and don't find a number on any of the flats (as I've noted in pictures of other tips).This one is quite old. So who knows.

It does have teh following on the outer rim: AV15EX.

I've seen it on the side, but like you said, it might be too old and they didn't do that.
BUT, that number you found could mean it's a 1.5 setup
