Porter Cable - PT501 Impact Wrench Torque selector leaking air

When the air line is hooked up to my impact wrench air leaks out the bottom of the handle. I believe the seal to the torque selector is bad but I do not know how to remove the selector to try and replace the seal.

SOURCE: Dont know where to put oil in Craftsman 1/2 " Impact wrench

I just bought one of these also. Manual says oil goes into "the air inlet" which I'm thinking is where you attach the hose. That way the oil is sprayed throughout the interior of the gun once you run air through it.
Question for you: I can't get an impact socket onto this gun, almost seems like the square hole is too small. (yes, both are 1/2" drive). How do you get a socket on this stupid thing?
(man that sounds like I'm an idiot, but I've spent a half hour leaning all my body wight, wiggling, etc. and can't get a damn socket on)

SOURCE: 1/2 air impact wrench will not turn socket.

Make sure the fitting are tight on the hose and gun. Also make sure that the switch for forward/reverse is solidly in one position, if it is not it will cause what you described.

Air leak on my IR231 A


It should just be the valve o-ring that is letting air bypass. Its located under your air inlet bushing. If you take out the bushing you will see a spring and a valve. The valve has a o-ring on it so just replace that and it should fix your problem.

I have just recieved a porter cable impact wrench,how do i connect the air hose? it has a plug inside a larger nut where the connection for the air hose is,how do i get this out? i checked the instructions...


This plug is usually just a shipping plug to keep trash out. Remove it and install a male quick connect. Put some teflon tape or paste on the threads before installing. Then your end of your air hose should have a female quick connect to plug up to the impact.

An impact wrench also requires a few special accessories. An air-powered impact wrench runs off of an air compressor with a tank – the air compressor should have at least a 10 gallon tank and be able to generate at least 3hp. Also, an impact wrench requires special sockets that are designed to withstand the high torque applied by the wrench.

Wrench Troubleshooting


In line oiler Lubrication is critical to extending the life of your valuable air impact wrench and increase productivity. An air tool that has not been properly lubricated will result in low power output. The usual culprit is a dry motor starving for some oil. Your impact wrench is an expensive investment and you must take the time to properly lubricate it. The easiest and quickest way to make surein line oiler it is constantly lubricated is to install an in line oil lubricator. One of these will insure your air tools are receiving oil every time they are used. In line lubricators attach right into the air hose and you fill them with the correct lubricating oil. (see your manufacturer's specs.). You should also do routine external lubrication through the hammer case grease fitting. A well lubricated air impact wrench will deliver more torque, last longer, run quieter and increase productivity. Don't forget to add an in line oiler to your next impact wrench or air tool. It will pay for itself several times over.
