Question about Porter Cable 2" Flooring Cleat Nailer FCN200
After only about 10,000 nails thru this nailer, the piston suddenly stopped retracting far enough to be able to fire a nail (it retracts to about 1/8" of overlap with the next nail). There's no jamb and the feed mechanism works fine. It gets oiled before every use, but it sounds like something in the pneumatic area is hanging up. I'd like to take the thing apart and inspect for wear and at least clean and oil it. It seems easy enough to disassemble, except that I can't figure out how to remove the rubber cap so I can get to the actuator under the exhaust cap. I don't want to force anything... what's the proper method to remove it? And any suggestions for the best oil to use during reassembly? Thanks!
The rubber cap just pulls off. maybe a screw driver to pry it first but it does just pop off.
As for oil, Always use what the manufacture recommends. But in the case you can figure that out, use a low viscos oil, maybe a standard 3-1 will do in most cases.
Also WD-40 works well.
