Question about Air Tools & Compressors
On the front nosepiece, unlatch the nose cover and see if you can push or pull on the driver pin. If you can push it into the housing all the way and feel the resistance from the driver piston it is not your driver. You may find that you can pull the driver but it will not go into the housing all the way. In this case you have a broken driver and will need to replace it. Note the driver pin should not lean sideways at all when you are pushing it into the housing. It sounds to me like a driver problem. Remove the four backhead screws and take the head off, be carefull not to damage the gasket. Remove the press ring (looks like a round cage) Then you can remove the cylinder. If it is the problem I think it is you will see the driver piston cocked sideways in the cylinder and a broken driver pin sitting at the bottem of the housing. You will have to replace the driver and the cylinder. along with any seals in this assembly. If you have any questions please post and I will try to answer.
