Without knowing your model number here are some things to check, in order of difficulty: 1. First make sure you're using the proper nails for your gun. If your gun isn't specifically listed on the box of nails as compatable make sure they are seating in your gun properly. Some brands of angled nails are a couple degrees off from others and won't work in competetor's guns. 2. Check the entire feed path of the nails in the magazine all the way up to where the driver catches the next nail. Sometimes dirt builds up in the track or there could be a peice of nail stuck in there preventing the nails from getting under the driver. Also the spring on the feed shoe should have strong pressure on the shoe all the way up to the head and the shoe has to ride freely in the magazine. 3. If the gun is making holes in the wood the driver isn't broke but it must be straight and true and the tip square. If not it will miss or slip off the nail before driving it. The only way to check the driver is to remove the head on the gun and take the driver out. The piston & driver should travel from the top to the bottom of the cylinder without binding anywhere. Correct any problems you find or replace any damaged parts and your gun should work.
You can reuse the oring from the old cylinder. Easy to install. The cylinder will break when the driver bends or breaks. If the driver looks good, dont worry about anything. Remove nails. Slip the driver into the cylinder and push driver and cylinder into body of the gun. Replace head.

You have worn o-rings. You can go to www.bostitch.com and find a breakdown of your nailer. On the left side of the page go to 'Schematics and Parts', find your model number and a parts list will come up. Unfortunately Bostitch doesn't make many repair kits for their guns, you have to order all of the o-rings individually. Replace all of them, if one or two are worn the rest are not far behind. You can order them from Stanley Bostitch or get the part numbers and find another vendor.
You must put an in-line regulator at the inlet for the gun. Turn your preasure to 90 psi and use a sample board to get the fine tune adjustment at the gun. Turning down the air preasure will reduce the amount of force the anvil hits the nail with.
You either have a piston stop bumper failure or some damaged orings. Look on the schematic and the piston stop bumper is number 11, part #107236. A lot of times the piston stop bumper will disintergrate due to becoming brittle from the compressed air and not having enough lubrication. Look for small plastic balls in the head under the valve. If you see little plastic pieces than that is what remains of the piston stop bumper. You will need to remove the valve from the head cap in order to inspect the bumper. Also inspect all orings. The slightest damage can have big effects. One other thing to look for is damage to the plastic valve that rides on 3 orings. (2 out and 1 in) I don't believe you have valve damage because you say it is firing like a machine gun. This is almost always the piston stop bumper.
