Hey,
Im a newbie to the page but work on bostitch every day at work. So, assuming that you have at least a 100psi on the compressor and everything is hooked up. still no fire? then disconnect your air from the gun, make sure the safety arm is working properly and is making contact with the trigger. flip it upside down with the air off and push down the trip you should see a small bar slide behind the trigger an hit a flipper that in return allows the button on the trigger to go down. sometimes the trip gets misaligned and have to take off the guard to adjust it. not too bad. write back if you have more concerns. Thomas Industrial Supply Inc. Schofield, WI we are on the net. I rebuild guns everyday mostly bostitch,spotnail, and a variety of other guns.
good luck call if you need assistance. 715 359 4124 we'll sure try to help.

Hi Don:
There could be several different causes so let's try the easiest step first.
SAFETY FIRST! Disconnect from the air supply.
- Check for a nail jammed in the discharge slot. Some guns have cap screws that hold the assembly together. Take it apart (keep the pieces organized and in sequence) and you will probably find where it is jammed. Clean, lubricate, re-assemble, insert some nails, connect air, test, disconnect air, Happy happy!
- Piston not retracting fully. Same routine as above only include dismantling poston assembly.

Truck wont crank. we have put new distributor cap, rotor button, coil pack, plugs, wires, and fuel pump. we also checked our firing order.


you said you repl dist cap that means you don't have a crank sensor you have electronic ing module. remove your elec ing module have it tested most auto parts stores could test your module, or check your coil at the neg terminal. should have power. if not you lost your primary volt from your batt.your secondary power is coming from your electronic ing module from the module to the pos terminal on the coil, when the eng cranks,from the coil to the dist cap , from the dist cap center to the rotor then out to the plugs,this all happen pervided the timing belt or timing chain is ok. the cumbustion chainber needs 3 things , thats fuel, air, and spark.
