to be honest, having a guide rod makes no difference. its possible to make a sprinkler valve pneumaticaly modified when the sprinkler valve has a gude rod. just put the blowgun off to the side so it never hits the rod..... and yes, i believe that valve has a guide rod.

no, not really, it (should) have the same amount of power.... if it doesnt meet your needs keep it anyway, modified sprinklers come in handy for piston guns.

No, the guide rod (I think) helps with the moving parts inside the valve in thier moving up and down.

Yes, that valve will do fine. Some people like to bend the guide rod into an "L" shape to get it out of the way.
