Adjusting the valves is easy, unlock the brass lock nut (on the vacuum side/T piece side) and turn the round knurled adjuster clockwise for more boost. Make sure you mark and count your turns so you can have some reference point. Cheers
See here for diagram of a setup http://www.chaz.yellowfoot.org/Manual Boost Controller.htm

You need to unscrew that Dawes valve all the way. Take the spring out and stretch it a bit. Put it back together and all will be good.
