I am using a Iwata-Medea Revolution CR Dual Action airbrush to paint cranks. I am a total rookie and this is my first real issue. When i tighten the nozzle cap finger tight it restricts paint flow. If i loosen it half a turn flow returns but pattern is affected. I have replaced the nozzle cap and needle without improvement. Please help.

cracked or damaged nozzle...replace the head system
clogged nozzle....clean out the nozzle with a toothpick
paint too thick...thin your paint

From your description of the problem I would begin by cleaning the nozzle.
If the pattern is still distorted replace the head system or at least the fluid nozzle.
There are some good tips on maintaining paint and reducing the possibility of contaminates getting into your brush in this post: tips and tricks

Good choice. A thorough cleaning is usually the best place to start.
