I haven't pulled the nozzles to observe flow/spray pattern, haven't had time, yet. But from what I can discern, the pump just seems weak when pumping against no resistance. Once I put my finger over the outlet hose, it definitely does not build pressure anywhere near 150psi.
Well, you need to do a process of elimination. If the kit was working fine before you did some maintenance on the setup, I'd go back to what you messed with.

IMO it's a clogged pump, but that's a completely blind assessment.
