Question about Hitachi Air Tools & Compressors
Removed, cleaned, and lubricated nail feeder assembly. The feed plunger moves freely with no air supply attached. With air applied, feed plunger moves all the way toward piston drive shaft and stays in that position even when gun is continually fired. Feeder piston doesn't move in return direction. What is the movement of air in the gun that moves the feed plunger when the gun is fired and when trigger is released? What causes the change in direction of the feed plunger? Maybe I should be looking for the problem elsewhere instead of the feed plunger assembly.
The allen screw/s that you mention are there to plug holes where automatic equipment would normally connect (such as automatic nailing machines) . This is only a plug and should not be driven in too far. I have also seen allen screws installed in the head to repair small crack/s.

Make sure the feeder spring behind the feeder pawl isnt broken or missing. it pushes the pawl to force the next nail

Not sure exactly what Bostitch framer model you have, but if it is powered by compressed air, as long as you remove the air hose from the nail gun, there should be no risk of the nail gun firing while you remove the jammed nail. There should be a way to access the driver area from the top of the nail gun, even via a latch or a couple screws. Remove the top part of the driver area and that should give you access to the jammed nail, which you can remove. Use long nose pliers or something similar if the nails are really stuck.

Yes you need to oil driver blade piston.
You need to check for spark. With no nail or gas in it. Take of main cylinder(4bolts on top, 2 bolts on nose. And then put in battery. And then push upper switch(behind roller at top) and the fan will come on. And then pull the trigger. You should have spark.
