    when looking at capping station the black side sets lower than the magenta side is there a adjustment to bring both sides up even? Thanks

    I dont know that it makes any difference if the caps are not the same or a little unlevel.
    Take you finger and press down on the cap and you will see that the rubber actually floats up and down to conform to the heads.
    However if the rubber has the least bit of dried ink or is rough they will not seal.

    If you are sucking air (and color) out of capping with syringe at some point you will feel like feed back pressure, if you don't you have a leaking problem!
