T40 Head

I have a Rainbird T40 head that at one time could be set for a partial
circle. Now it is going 360 and I can't figure out if it is broken
or not adjusted. Quite honestly, I can't remember just how you set
them anyway. Can you tell me 1) how to tell if it might be broken,
and 2) how do you really set these kind.

How to adjust the T-40:

I think you might have a broken head. Since they have been out, I have been only installing Rainbird 5000's instead of the T-Bird series because they are alot easier to adjust.

Although Rainbird's new head the 5000 is out, i still use the Tbird. Is the head going in a continous 360 or stopping and reversing, and then going back around. If it is stopping and reversing you just need to adjust, but if it is going continously you have a broken head.
