Your better off using a sprinkler valve without a guide rod in the diaphragm

Try something like an orbit water master

Every sprinkler valve can be modded, though some types are harder to mod then others.
If you remove that solenoid, drill out some, and put the blowgun there?

Do you live in Aus by any chance?If you do PM me or add me on msn goth_thugg@hotmail.com and I'll help you to mod the Aussie sprinkler valves as they all have a guide rod in them with or without a flow control.

Im not sure what the for the hole for the selenoid is but i think its half inch.

I would buy a 1/2 to 1/4 inch adapter in the compressor isle. Then thread my blow gun into the adapter with a 1/4 inch nipple and just thread it in the selenoid hole.

But before putting it in you would of course want to widen out the hole underneath the selenoid for better flow.

You can leave the bleed screw in the middle in or you can take it out and fill the hole with epoxy.
