Craftsman 875188020 air leaks out the side only when trigger is pressed.

All air ratchets have an exhaust. Air in must go somewhere and it will go out the exhaust. Some exit beside the air inlet & some have the air exit out the side of the handle. If the air is not coming out of a defined air orifice, then you may have a worn out gasket where the handle meets the head or you may have a cracked handle. The handle unscrews but you must hold the head in a vise while you use a wrench or adjustable wrench to grip the end of the handle to unscrew it for inspecting the internals.

Which way does a bottom pully bolt turn to loosen it on honda accord 1992

Anti clockwise (Counter clockwise) to loosen, but be warned, it is tight, it is very tight, and will require very heavy duty drives to loosen it. I cannot remember the torque offhand, but suspect it is in the region if 300 ft/lbs.

The compressor turned on pumped up and shut off and wont start up

Inccrease the line pressure to 90 PSI, a air ratchet is a very high volume air tool and the compressor may not be able to keep up with it.

What sockets fit

Any sockets will fit the ratchet, 3/8 drive, the impact drive is 1/2 drive, and they make hardened sockets for it. And I can't really make out the last tool there in the kit. The impact tool will take normal sockets for reg duty use but not for wheel lugs and such, they will crack, but if you buy Craftsman, they will replace it. I have only cracked one in thirty years. But I also have the hardened set of sockets. Hope this helps.

Air impact tool does not engage but will eventually engage after switching directions.

Although I do not have a Craftsman, I have taken severl othe brands apart. They all seem to be much the same. You do not need specialized tool. You just have to be mechanically savey. I think the grease has thickened up too much so taking it apart and cleaning it should do the trick. Start at the working end end and separate the front end. Work on a clean bench where little items (screws, ball bearings etc) won't roll off and get lost. When the two parts are separated, you should see the hammer mechanizm and a lot of grease. remove and clean everything that you can. Re-lube the mechanizm with a light lube grease and re-assemble. Turn the socket drive by hand to make sure everything is free, then apply a liberal application of air tool oil to the air port of the gun and attach an air line and give it a try . Put a load on the socket to check for impact functioning properly. I hope this helps
