Master Valve Issue

Have Buckner Master Value, wiring has been messed up in box. Is there anything different in wiring the master valve except having it on a seperate wire to the "pump or master side of the control box" and to the common ground. Seems system has to turn on master first than other valves but does not always do that. Is there a special way to wire?

Wiring is the same as any other valve unless you have a unique setup. Master valves always get more wear and tear than your zone valves. You might need to replace

The Master valve wires up in the clock one wire to the MV connection the other goes to the common either in the clock or in the common connection in the yard ,replace it with a HPV (high pressure valve ,hunter brand ) this will do it.
