what noid are you using? the best way to set the lpr is to indeed start at zero and turn till you get it to cycle, then give it another 1/4 turn

see if it will move with the ram removed. maybe there is not enough clearance for it to move.

Anyone else have the issue of the gun not cycling when the tank pressure is at 1000, its seems like 1000 psi is just barely getting me through a hopper, what kind of tanks did yall use with yours?

thats not that uncommon. x valves are air hogs and need lots of pressure to cycle. i can take my tank off my egomag at about 800psi(no more cycles) and still get a hopper + with my shocker.

like renie said it could be your tank reg. what kind are you using?
