hello, I boughta earlex 5500 on Craigslist. it came with the 2.0 nozzle installed a 1.5. I tried to put the 1.5 nozzle and needle in but the needle doesn’t go all the way in. it seems the barrel is too fat or something. any ideas or suggestions?

Put some mineral oil on the needle. Just rub some on. Don’t need much.
