Question about Porter Cable Cable No. FC350A Clipped Head Framer
I have a framing nailer that has constant air coming out of the back of the nailer where the "blow back" would come out. It does not stop so I lose psi...This is the first day I have used this tool, but it is over a year old. It sat at a store, but never sold. I was the first to use it. I am working in 10 degree weather if that matters. The tool did work for an hour or so at a very slow pace, three of four nails then 5 minutes then repeat. The tool stopped working after I used it to put 20 nails in straight with no break.
Your head cap actuator is sticking. since machine sat in a store Porter cable head caps have a tendency to stick due to the head self-corroding inside. They have had this problem for years and never addressed it. After you look at parts schematic and understand where certain parts go,Take head off and remove white plastic actuator in head. Remove orings and wipe them with a rag. wipe the grooves with a rag to remove any build up. If head it corroded spray head with liquid wrench, not WD 40. and let sit overnight reinstall orings and use petroleum jelly or a thin grease to lubricate orings and reinstall actuator in head. Reassemble. Use pnuematic oil on a daily basis.
