Adjusting direction of shrubbery spray heads

Howdy folks -

I've got a collection of 12" risers with Rain Bird fixed plastic nozzles on top of them in my irrigation system. One in particular was a quarter circle that I want to change to a half circle, but when I screw on the new nozzle, it's facing 180 degrees in the wrong direction. The wall doesn't need water!

Besides adjusting the radius of the spray, I don't see an obvious way to get this thing to point in the right direction.

This seems like it should be a simple thing...I haven't just grabbed the channel lock pliers and manhandled the thing yet - is that the magic trick? What am I missing?

I believe you should be able to grab on to the head and twist the smaller stem so it shoots where you want it to.
