Tip & How-To about Tools & Hardware - Others
If you are having a problem with air leaking out of the trigger area it is usually a split o ring on the valve assembly. To remove the trigger valve there are 3 roll pins that have to be removed and usually one is shorter so lay them out in the order removed first the trigger and the 2 holding the valve in place. Next get a shop rag or glove and place under the valve holding it in place while holding back the collar on the quick connect (so it won't lock) push it onto the tool and the valve will JUMP out of the tool. Get the replacement valve and before reassembling lightly coat the o rings, you will notice 2 cutouts on the valve which must be aligned with the roll pin holes, push the new valve in and align the slots for easier assembly reassemble in reverse order.
