I do not think it is an ink clogging problem as much as it is an ink flow or air problem.

Did you try a higher positioning of the bottles?

I am beginning to think so too, see my update from yesterday too.

After I re-installed the system yesterday and got poor nozzle patters I pulled dampers out to see ink levels and they were all partially filled which means ink is not flowing into them.  Inkrepublic states to have the ink bottles on the same table the printer is on because raising the bottles will flood the printer.  I tried raising the bottles by 1.5 inches with no different results.

The heat in my place is about 64 degrees and their website has "help" that says using a hair dryer on the tubes will help ink flow - not something I want to have to do just to get my printer working properly.
