New turbo actuator won't move?

I just rebuilt my turbo and replaced the old ford actuator. I purchased everything from Ron's Turbo in Utah including the wastegate actuator. I am attempting to adjust the new wastegate actuator but I am very confused. I hooked up to the actuator with a adjustable pressure regulator with gauge to my air compressor. Ron told me to set the actuator to open at 20 psi. I can not get it to open at any pressure even with the actuator rod unhooked from the wastegate. When I hook my regulator up to the old actuator I can get it to start opening at about 5 psi and be fully open at about 20psi. But I have already applied about 60psi to the new actuator and the rod on it has not even budged. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

Ok. I went and tried messing with it again and got it to work. It acted like it was stuck until I manually pulled out on the rod. I was told to set it at 20 psi. I adjusted the length of the rod until I got it to start to open at 20 and is fully open at 40psi. (this is with it bolted to the turbo) Is that correct? The old ford one starts to open at something less than 5psi and the rod is fully extended at 20psi (not attached to the turbo).
