Not enough water pushing to open zones

None of the 6 zones are activating and I am only getting a slight spurt of water in zone 1 when activated. The controller is working fine (24 volts going to each zone) and I’ve checked all solenoids but no obvious problems. I discovered if the MV solenoid is removed and zone 1 activated, the zone will activate and water sprays from the open MV. I removed the MV bonnet, checked the spring and exit port but still no change. I have Weathermatic Nitro 100 valves. I did replace the MV solenoid with an orbit solenoid a couple years ago, would that cause a problem? I don’t believe there are any leaks and haven’t found any electrical problems. Any other help would be greatly appreciated!
