I just finished 800 square feet of oak flooring with this nailer. You might have to increase the psi at the gun and make sure it gets a good square firm hit to set the nail. You can swing and hit the thing pretty hard, I hit it hard to set warped boards in place. I used 120 psi for best results, I tried 90 psi but had more misfires. The nail head only needs to set in far enough so the head is touching the tongue and so the next board will fit. The nail won't be buried into the tongue like you might think. If the occasional nail protrudes from the board you can use a nail set to drive the nail the rest of the way in, but I found that most of the nails didn't want to set by hand. I either clipped off the head with side cutters and folded over the remaining tab or did my best to set the nail if it wasn't long enough to clip. If it bends over really ugly, just carve a little wood from the groove lands on the next board to clear the nail stub. Removing the nails is difficult, it's best to let them be rather than risk damaging the flooring. Also, don't let the gun get down to the last nail. Sometimes if you try to fire the last nail on a strip it will twist and damage the flooring. Always keep a few nails in the gun just to be safe. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 5/8 flooring nailer
The flooring is it engineered or solid? Specific engineered can be nailed with this gun. Using hte white plate that came in the bag, Its a thicker plate than the gun, and a BOSTITCH 108771, metal shim that installs inside the gun. This will allow 5/8" thick, Owens, Aswaha bay, etc 5/8" thick, with a heavy wearlayer to be installed with this nailer. Any thinner wear layer will become a problem

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.

You will have to call Harbor Freight at 800-444-3353. Make sure you have the item number of your nailer. Sometimes you can pull up a breakdown online if you search your item number of harbor freights website. Most of the time you cannot. Also be aware that it takes sometimes 6 weeks to get your parts. The parts aren't expensive but it takes forever to get them. Every once in a while you will get the parts in a week or two. Good luck.
