Rifle misfires half the time with light, shallow, firing pin strikes. Firing pin reolaced and hammer spring believed good. Suspect headspace too great. Please advise. Robert

Without knowing what kind of rifle it is, it's hard to guess what might be the problem.

Make absolutely sure everything is clean and lubricated properly. Dirty action could be causing the hammer to bind.

If that doesn't help, I would suggest replacing the hammer spring anyway.

It's unlikely headspace will change on most types of guns, but if replacing the hammer spring and cleaning the action doesn't solve the problem, it's time to have it checked out by a professional. Too much headspace is dangerous.

Frequently the problem for this is a plastic ring that has three pins in it. Normally the pins break through the bottom of the ring.
You need to take covers off. Strip SDS chuck. Remove plastic cap from end of drill then remove large internal retaining ring. Tap end of drill with mallet and eventually the tool holder will come out.
At the bottom of the tool holder there is a thin O ring (all this does is keeps a plastic gear and springs on the tool holder.) Remove this ring gear and springs can now be removed. You should now see the plastic ring (approx. 30mm long) Examine ring and pins, probably need to replace ring. This is usually the cause of not hammering, I have found changing seals works for weak hammering. Although having stripped the drill to this point I normally change the O rings on the hammer and piston. Rebuild is reverse of stripping be careful with the thin O ring not to snap it.

How to replacefront leaf springs on toyota hilux dualcab4 x4

undo the 2 small retainer studs from the pin-plate. Place a nut on the thread of the pin and do up partway Ensure that the vehicle is placed on stands with the wheels just touching the ground so as to relieve all tension in the springs. Hammer the nut on the pin . It will also help if you use a pair of stilsons on the plate twisting while hammering. The plate will move out revealing a large hole on one side . When the pin moves freely remove the nut and hammer on the plate. As to the front swing shackle remove both nuts and with a bar between the spring and the hanger hammer the plate and pins out. undo the spring u- bolts and remove the spring Note-1--- do one side at a time as it retains the location of the front axle for spring replacement. Note--2---Hilux springs are bad for sagging so have an extra leaf fitted under main leaf Note--3-- do not use eurothane bushes as they will crack the chassis in adverse conditions.

Need instructions on replacing drivers side door hinge pins and bushings

  • 1. Place masking tape on the inside edges of the door, on both the inside and outside of the door. 2. Remove the door spring by using a door spring removal tool. Insert the tool into the door spring, turn the knob with a screwdriver to compress the spring, then pull out the tool. 3. Set a 5-gallon bucket under the door. This will help support the weight of the door. 4.Place a nail punch under the hinge pin, and strike it with a hammer. Repeat this until the hinge pin begins to come out of the hinge. 5.Place the end of a flat-head screwdriver under the top of the hinge pin, then strike the screwdriver with the hammer to force the hinge pin out of the hinge. 6. Place the bushing on top of the new door hinge pin, and tap it into place with the hammer. 7. Insert the new hinge pin into the hinge. Tap on the hinge pin with the hammer and nail punch to force the pin into the hinge. 8. Insert the hinge spring back into the door, and release the tension on the spring removal tool. 9. Spray the door hinge with a lubricating spray or apply grease.

    I know there are a few directions but it is fairly easy to do. If you have access to an air hammer and a compressor you can use this in place of a manual hammer to make the process a bit easier.

    Hope this helps.

    Purchased a brute hammer at a garage sale and it is missing 1 of the 3 springs from the area where bits attach. Is this an easy fix and or expensive Thanks Mark

    Parts are easily available for your hammer. Check on ebay or There is a service kit available # 1617000050 that includes set of bolts, orings, grease, brushes etc. After the service kit is installed your hammer will be ready for serious work . This kit does not include springs (#3614640501 each, uses three ). Good luck ~ greatest electric hammer ever made!

    How do I drain the gear oil from a Bosch Brute Jack Hammer

    Brute hammer uses special grease sold as service kit. This kit contains enough grease to lube hammer and replacement bolts that hold springs along the bottom. Check for parts and kit. Remove the lower half (tube) of hammer, also remove three bolts that hold springs and remove assembly from tube. Wash out old grease. Grease will be oil-like only when hammer is very hot, otherwise grease is paste-like. Good luck.

    Winchester model 88. with the trigger assembly

    Less Than Perfect
    The Model 88 had its faults. The trigger moves with the lever and the resulting linkage to the sear results in a rather spongy, creepy trigger break. If you want to see your gunsmith turn pale, waltz into the shop with an M88 and ask for a crisp three-pound trigger.

    If you already have taken the gun apart, don't be afraid to hone the parts on a stone , keep them flat, you don't want anything rounded off. Especially the sear. I found that quote up top from a winchester sight,

    51e9bbd.jpg ATTENTION Hammer springs and hammer tips are fragile. Do not touch the hammer springs or tips. Handle hammer springs by the
    thick mounting base only. Apply pressure only to the mounting base.
    NOTE: Replace a hammer spring assembly only if there is visible damage or broken parts can be seen in the assembly.
    5. Remove the mounting screws from the old hammer spring assembly. (See Figure 18, page 367.)
    6. Handling the hammer spring assembly by the mounting base only, gently pry the old hammer spring assembly off its
    mounting pins. (See Figure 18, page 367.)
    7. Inspect the hammer bank and the old hammer spring assembly:
    a. If there is ink on the hammer bank mounting surface, the hammer spring assembly mounting surface, or the hammer
    spring neck or tines, reinstall the old hammer spring assembly and replace the shuttle frame assembly (page 405).
    b. If the old hammer spring assembly and the hammer bank are free of ink, install the new hammer spring assembly
    1. Using a clean dry cloth, wipe the hammer spring mounting surface on the hammer bank. Make sure the cloth does not
    leave lint on the hammer bank.
    ATTENTION Hammer springs and hammer tips are fragile. Do not touch the hammer springs or tips. Handle hammer springs by the
    thick mounting base only. Apply pressure only to the mounting base.
    NOTE: Replace a hammer spring assembly only if there is visible damage or you see broken parts in the assembly.
    2. Handling it by the mounting base only, remove the new hammer spring assembly and mounting screws from the box.
    3. Handling the hammer spring assembly by the mounting base only, carefully position it on the hammer bank mounting pins.
    then gently press the mounting base down against the alignment pins. (See Figure 19, page 369.)
    4. Continue pressing down on the mounting base of the the new hammer spring assembly as you install the mounting screws
    from the replacement kit. Using a Torx T-10 bit adapter, torque each screw to 14 inch-pounds (1.58 N•m). Tighten the
    center screw(s) first. (See Figure 19, page 369.)
    NOTE: Use the 1-30 inch-pound Torque Screwdriver, IBM part number 16F1661.
    5. Install the hammer bank cover assembly (page 354).
    6. Install the shuttle frame assembly (page 405).
    7. Install the ribbon and load paper.
    ATTENTION Do not attempt to adjust or “tweak” hammer springs.
    8. Run an operator print test and check print quality (page 223):
    a. If print quality is acceptable, return the printer to normal operation (page 339).
    b. If print quality is still degraded, replace the shuttle frame assembly (page 405).
