Re: front air hose hook up is missing
Here are a couple of ideas that may help. If you have a local Lowes store neer you, take your compressor with you into the store and have the tool salesman help you with the parts that you need. They stock regulators, quick disconnect fittings and hose fittings. If you do not need quick disconnect fittings you could just thread the hose to the pressure side of regulator or fitting. Standard pipe plumbing sizes are used. Second solution would be to take compressor to an auto parts store. They also stock all the fittings and related parts. Good luck, enjoy.

Various nailers will fire on their own when connected to air if the orings have become hard or worn and internal trigger valve parts worn-out (mostly Dewalt and P/C). You could buy an oring kit or purchase trigger valve seperately. Replacing trigger valve and lubing the headvalve with white grease will most likely solve the problem. After repairing the gun, be sure to remove the nails from the mag after each use to prevent possible discharge of nail. Good luck
The air nozzle/hose for your saw is a series of peices, about 15 or so, each a cone on one end and a ball on the other. They snap together like Legos to make the nozzle flexible and long enough to reach the cutting table. The first peice is made to adapt to the air pump and the last tapers down to a small opening to help increase the air pressure and direct it towards the cutting area. If you're missing either the first or last peice, a new air nozzle is available from Dewalt and several after market parts sites, the part number is 286311-00.
The A.I.R. (Air Injection Reaction) System was included on California-emission equipped vehicles. The system is designed to provide additional oxygen to continue the combustion process after the exhaust gases leave the combustion chamber. The system begins with the outside air inlet, which is a short, L-shaped open-ended rubber hose running from the lower front passenger fender well into the canister. The black plastic round canister is located in the front passenger-side engine compartment, adjacent to the EECS (Evaporative Emission Control System) canister, which looks similiar, but the EECS canister has electrical connectors on the top. While the charcoal canister of the EECS is a sealed unit, the A.I.R. canister has a twist-off lid to access the disposable filter. The inlet hose goes into the canister, air then passes through the charcoal filter, and travels into the outlet hose (also made of black rubber), which then connects directly to a metal tube coming up the front of the engine. Please contact me if you need a diagram or photos.
I believe the hose you are referring to is the "Aftercooler" that connects from the head (outlet) of the compressor head to the air tank. Under normal use, the aftercooler will get very hot. Air is heated when compressed and will heat up this hose and the inlet area of the tank.
We used nail guns for years. I still own 6 guns, but they aren't used much anymore. You have a 'blown head gasket.' Or there is debris from the air hose that got lodged into the gun. There is a head gasket and a trigger gasket. Both can blow out any time from use, lack of oil, or they can stick open from debris. You can take apart the head and clean it up and add oil to see if that solves problem. You can order a gun re-build kit for your model and put in the parts yourself. You can have a nail gun repair shop do the job.
Nail guns require gun oil. If you don't use gun for a while, oil should be put into air hose opening and then left to run down into gun. More oil is better. If you use 3-in-1 oil or some oil besides gun oil, then it will corrode the gaskets. When storing air hose and guns, put tape over openings so they stay clean. Before hooking air hose to a gun, you can also put a blower on hose and blow out the line first
Yep that's a problem! You should be able to purchase good quality air hose from any good hardware or tool store. I find the coil hoses to be more of a pain than they are worth (always tangling up on itself). I use straight hose now of high quality.
Sounds like the trigger o-ring is damaged, either because of not being oiled frequently, or the pneumatic tool has not been used for a while. O-rings will harden up if not used. Look for a place that sells fasteners, or nails and see if they can put a new o-ring in the trigger asm. for you. If you take the gun to a place where you purchase your nails, they should repair for little or no cost. it is an easy repair if you have the tools, parts, etc.
