You need an o-ring repair kit. the part number will be located in your owner's manual. a blown upper o-ring is usually due to leaving it out in the weather for extended periods of time or hooking it up to a compressor with a psi regulator set over 120.

I have a hitachi nr90ae that will not fire. Depress nose and trigger and gets nothing. What's next?

Remove nails and air supply. Firmly depress safety foot against work with trigger depressed and make sure that firing pin is pushed all the way in. If firing pin is being activated by safety foot most likely problem is stuck cylinder or head valve. If the gun has been dropped the cylinder my jam. Remove the head and make sure that the cylinder and or headvalve moves and that the driver is not stuck in place. Good luck

Why won't feed plunger advance nails?

The two hex head screws on the very top of the head hold the air deflector and attach to the headvalve (the part inside the head with rubber coating, this headvalve has a gasket under that should be check for proper alignment ). Other small screws that look like set screw are only plugs that are removed to install auto control hoses in factory work. These are only plugs so just put them in a few turns with locktite.

I have a nv45ab roofing nailgun & it blows air out of exhaust on top any sug.

Hitachi nailers use an unusual design of actually moving the cylinder to fire instead of moving the headvalve. If the cylinder gets stuck in the open position (down), air will leak out of the head. To reset the cylinder, remove the nails and connect air supply. With air connected, lightly rap the head of the nailer against coiled air hose or soft rubber (too hard of a hit could damage the head). If after a couple of hits air still leaks, remove head and check headvalve for cracks. Replace as needed. If headvalve rubber looks ok, remove cylinder and clean/lube. If cylinder has fine scratches where orings make contact, sand smooth with 400 grit sandpaper. Lube with silicone paste, white grease or nailer oil.

I changed the feeder springs in my hitachi NV83 a2 and it wants to double fire and jaming up the driver with seconded nail. it was skip nailing before i changed springs. any help you could give me would be...

Your nailer is a very heavy duty nailer with very powerful blow. Works best with full size nails, not 2 inch range that are used in fencing, they are not spaced correctly for your gun (like hitting number 6 nail with sledge hammer). Open side door and remove the nails, leave the door open and dry fire gun against piece of rubber or old coiled air hose. The driver should return all the way up between shots and the feeder should move back then forward just as fast as the driver moves. If the feeder seems to move in slower motion then pull feed piston and replace orings and remove debris from feed cylinder. If the driver seems to stick out further than normal then lower bumper could be breaking up causing debris to enter feeder. Make sure that the driver is not bent and has a squared bottom, if rounded, remove and grind square. Finally adjust the depth control up or down slightly and bump fire for test, do not place gun on the work then fire. good luck

Is all air conditioner split unit come with gas show me for free

Split air conditioner units usually do not come with the freon installed, because you need to run the hoses through holes in the wall to connect the inside evaporator with the outside pump and condenser.
So you drill the holes, install the units, connect the hoses, evacuate the air and moisture out, and then fill with freon.

I pull the trigger and get a rush of air but no nail shot. It has been working fine for the last several days. I've got it running on between 75 and 80 psi.

Place two drops of light oil into the gun at the air inlet, and re-connect the hose. Fire your gun several times into scrap wood.

Best regards, --W/D--

Nail gun is miss fireing sometimes might only fire 1 in 4 nails fired

remove all the nails and remove the air hose. BUMP the tool on something and does the driver come down on its own if so it needs new o rings. also take a look at the feed pawl for a broken spring that would prevent it from feeding nails and lastly look at the coil of nails to make sure they pull freely. Let me know if you need more assistance.

My nail gun hitachi nr83a2 only fires a nail half way

the blade assemblies for the A and A2 are the same.

the pison bumper should not be attached to the driver, if the bumper is moving around inside the gun i suggest checking to make sure it was properly seated when the gun was reassembled. if it was, i suggest ordering a new bumper.

a cracked bumper will usually cause a broken driver.
