If you have the owner's manual, it should contain a parts diagram - it will usually give you the part number for O-Ring replacement kits, and if you can follow the parts diagram, carefully disassemble the tool in accordance with the parts diagram and replace each O-Ring one-at a time (so you don't forget which one goes where) and then carefully re-assemble in accordance with the parts diagram. Be sure to follow any lubrication instructions you may see in the manual or kit instructions. You can get parts and manuals from their website: www.bostitch.com

It depends, what is the model number for this tool. They make rebuild kits that are not hard to install. If it is a trigger leak then yes that is easy. Let me know and I will try and help

Hi air is leaking from the top of the gun thanks


If you have a very slow leak most likely the lower half of the headvalve (white plastic) is scratched. The gun will work ok but waste air. Parts are not expensive and are available from Dewalt service center. Remove head and pull out headvalve. Look for scratches where oring makes contact. If a lot of air is leaking, most likely cylinder seal needs replacing (vinyl ring installed on the headvalve) or has debris keeping it from making full contact with the cylinder. If you have lots of hours of use you may consider installing the rebuild kit. Good luck.

I have a N59 FN air is leaking from the bottom of gun I put ne trigger and O rings still leaking now what.


Air leaking from the bottom of the gun (path of driver) indicates that cylinder seal orings are leaking (if without nails in gun the driver is slowly pushed down the cylinder when air is connected then cylinder seal is leaking ). Cylinder seal snaps on the top of the cylinder and should fit snug and have no cracks. Easy fix for cylinder ring. Remove head and pull out cylinder. Then remove the cylinder ring (part #n50015). Examine ring for cracks and replace as needed. Examine body of gun where spacer oring makes contact and sand fine scratches. Replace orings as needed. If air is leaking between body of the gun and nose casting, replace gaskets. Good luck.

Bostitch framming gun sticking?


Most likely the headvalve is sticking. An easy fix would be to remove the head and lubricate the headvalve orings with white grease or silicone paste. The upper bumper should not have any cracks. If the problem continues replace the trigger valve (tva6). The trigger valve can be bostitch or generic sold on ebay for usually less then $20. The trigger valve has an inner valve that can stick due to swolen or hard orings.

The gun constantly exhausts air when connected to air compressor. Won't build up the pressure when connected. Must disconnect between firing trigger


Easy fix if air is leaking out the top of gun. Remove the head and lube with white grease or silicone paste. If orings seem to be loose, order repair kit from dewalt (you can tighten orings by removing the oring and wind a bit of teflon tape in the oring groove). If air is leaking from the trigger, replace the valve. If air is leaking out the bottom where the nail ejects, pull out the cylinger and lube the orings that seal the cylinder to the body of the gun.

Hi i have a problem with my stanly bostitch nail gun .i was using it ok for a little while then the nail stop coming out ,now all i hear is a putting sound only ,sounds like no air ,but my compressor and...


Your nailer model number is N75C-1 shares design features with many other bostitch coil nail guns. Usually, when you only hear a puff of air coming from the trigger area or within gun, the driver or headvalve is stuck. Usually easy to fix. First check the driver by removing air supply and inserting metal rod into nose of gun pushing the driver all the way up to top of cylinder (open latch and note position of driver, should not be visible). If driver is stuck due to debris, clear and retest gun. If driver is all the way up then remove head and see if the driver moves down (should move with light pressure). Headvalve should move inward with strong thumb pressure and move back out. Repair as needed and lube with silicone paste lube (sold at Lowes in plumbing department and swimming pool supplies). If both driver and headvalve look ok, then suspect trigger valve under the trigger. Good luck

Instructions to install trigger assembly in n60fn air nailer


Easy to do. Use 3mm roll pin punch to remove pins at trigger and one or two pins just above the trigger valve in the body of the gun. With pins removed and trigger out, nails removed and with a gloved hand, apply air pressure to gun to pop out the valve. Use caution because the valve will come out with force if air pressure is too high (reduce air pressure at compressor). Make note of grooves cut into the old trigger valve in relation to how the valve was aligned and held in with roll pins. New tva6 valve is sold on ebay for under $20. Good luck

Gun will not shoot nails completely;no matter what wood,thickness,etc.they drive all but 1/2"


May be due to broken tip. Easy to check. Remove nails and leave door open. With door open, lightly tap the nose of the gun against coiled rubber hose or soft wood. The driver should stay at top position. If driver falls to bottom of the cylinder, replace piston oring. Now press nose of the gun against old coiled up air hose or soft wood and squeeze and hold trigger. The gun will fire and the driver should stay in the down position untill you release the trigger (if not single fire trigger, if single fire trigger remove trigger and press the trigger pin with finger). While the driver is down, make sure that the tip extends past the nose about 1/4 inch (if air leaks past the nose in this position, replace lower bumper). If the driver does not extend past the nose, replace driver. Good luck

I got air leaking out the barrel where the nail shoots from.


Without model number I cannot be more exact, however, air leaking from nose as soon as you connect the airline indicates that the cylinder spacer orings are leaking. The cylinder is usually sealed by a plastic or metal ring with an oring at the outer edge and seals against an oring installed at the cylinder. Broken oring or grit entering the gun will cause the orings to leak. A quantity of air leaking from the nose when you fire a nail indicates that the lower bumper is cracked or missing pieces. Air leaking from nose with driver being pushed to bottom of cylinder when you connect the airline indicates that the cylinder seal at top of cylinder is leaking. Parts are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com Good luck with your repair and post again with model number if you need more help.
