Looking to order a spring ,located in the bottom of the handle.

  • I need more info, such as in what condition is the little "O" ring seal? have you tried a bit of vasolene on the seal and the cartridge end found it works better lasts longer and gives better consistency the spring isn't as critical as the seals, start with them then get back with me. 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 Good luck with your repair and post again with model number if you need more help.

I have a mitutoyo dial depth gauge. How do I use and read this?

A dial depth gage should have a set of depth stems. they are in 1" increments. to change the stem, first using a scale, measure the depth of the hole you are checking. Find the stem that falls in that range. remove the cap on the top of the unit, pull the existing stem out and replace it with the stem you need to reach the bottom of the hole. replace the screw-on cap. Set the cross bar of the body on the face of the part. Gently turn the barrel until the stem touches the bottom. the barrel has a 1" range. The numbers represent .1". The lines between the numbers represent .025". One turn of the dial equals .025" Add the length of the stem, the number on the barrel, the number on the dial and the number diall. Example, If the hole measures between 3" and 4" i.e. (3-1/8")start by installing the 3 to 4" stem. Turn the barrel so it reads "0". place the cross bar of the body so it touches the face perpendicular to the hole. Gently turn the barrel of the unit until it stops at the bottom of the hole. Add 3" plus the number on the barrel (.1"), the number of graduations on the barrel, and the number on the dial (.023"). The reading is 3.123". If you know your decimal equivalents, you will know that the hole is .002" short of 3.125" (or 3-1/8" deep.

Ive rebuilt a holly 4 barrel carb and the floats have been adjusted right and its leaking between the intake manifold and the bottom of were the carb connects to the intake.what is the cause of that?

You have to have a carb base plate gasket. Mr gasket makes a decent product that i currently use on my 84 F150. remove your carb and inspect the base of it, remove any debris that may be causing it to not seal properly. good luck

Rebuilt top end twice water was leaking into oil so striped it down put new gasket kit in still got same problem

If it got realy hot you may of warped the head or cracked the cylinder. Do a compersition test to see how much pressure you are looseing. High would be the head witch would be easyer and cheaper to fix low you may need to replace the cylinder

Suzuki RM 125 water is mixing with the gearbox oil how do I fix it, or what is the cause. The water is leaking from the cooling system and turning the oil milky. I have just changed the oil and filled up...

Did you do the reassembly yourself? If not, take it back to whoever did because the reassembly was done incorrectly. Oil and water mixing can only happen at the top or bottom ends of the barrel. Either the head gasket is not seated properly or the barrel to casing seals are not properly installed
