If air is leaking all the time out the exhaust or around the cylinder ou are right. An o-ring is blown. You can buy an o-ring kit to relplace them.

My 5 year old compressor runs continuously and only reaches 40 psi


The pressure hose is not leaking on the connections between tank and cilinder the pressure unloader underside on the pressure switch with little blue or black little hose is closed (not blowing air out ) if the compressor is running? and is the check valve on the tank not dirty inside ?? if the pressure unloader or connections are definitely not leaking.
A little piece shard of the membrane plate(s) thats insite the head of the pressure cilinder is broken and is inserted in the black rubber of the check valve .
More possibilitys the pressure switch itself. the insite diaphragm membran has a problem replace always the whole pressure switch if its defekt.

Bostitch N62FN air leaks out the cap and it wont pressure up or fire. Is the piston ring solid


Glad that you repaired your gun. The piston oring is the only oring in the gun that can have slit and still work fine. It works like a piston ring in a motor. Small ring gap is ok just as long as the piston does not drop down the cylinder under its own weight. The piston oring does not hold pressure, it only reacts to pressure when headvalve opens. When this series of gun leaks air, it is usually due to headvalve orings (lube with white grease), Cylinder seal loose or broken, or trigger valve oring splits (tva6 valve). Good luck

First take off the head on the air pump and check the reed valves on the valve plate. If they got hot and warped or cracked they'll work to a point then no more pressure can be built up. Next check the pistion ring and cylinder wall. If either is damaged you'll only get so much pressure build-up then it will leak past the piston.

Adjusting airpresure


There is nothing on a nailer to adjust the air pressure. You have to do it at the pressure regulator. It is feasable to mount a regulator at the gun but more likely it's on the compressor. Most nail guns are rated for 90 to 120 psi. Set your regulator to hold the hose pressure between 90 and 100 psi. Using higher pressure to set the nail will ruin your nailer. Use the depth adjustment on the gun to set how far the nail is driven.

Pressure in the tank only builds to 30 psi


Bad check valve. But I would check the regulator, by turning it down to about 10 PSI and running it and see if it builds again, if that works then it is the check valve. But from what you are saying I would replace the check valve anyways.

Sometimes when the air pressure drops, it won't pull the plunger back up and will leak like that, Try pulling the access off the front for a stuck nail, and pull or push the drive pin back up, plug it back into the hose and see what happens. Make sure the pressure is 120 lbs.

Will a 1/3 hp compressor fire an 18 guage 5/8'-2" Finish nailer?


You compessor is ideal for a small spray gun however a pin nailer requires 80 to 100 psi and a small air storage thank to operate properly. The nailer may very well shoot a short nail into very soft wood at 30 psi, however there may not be enough pressure to push the piston back to top positon to load another nail and fire again. Good Luck
