I picked up a used ST Pro 395 Graco sprayer that wasn't cleaned very well, what's the best thing that will remove/dissolve the old latex paint from inside the hoses and filter housing?

I know about storing it with Pump armor or mineral spirits to protect the innards but will mineral spirits remove some of the built-up latex inside the machine or is there something better?

I agree. For sure dump the hose. Take the rest apart and see what it looks like.

It works fine but I would like to get it cleaner than what it is. I have a new hose and gun.

Then just run the spirits through it if it's not that bad. You can just recycle a few gallons through it a couple times, I'm sure it'll clean up any minor crap.
What about laquer thiner, will that work or will that eat the innards of the sprayer?
