Question about Stanley Bostitch 28 Industrial Framing Nailer System - F28WW

1 Answer

I tried to put O-rings in my T31 bostich nail gun. There is a 2-piece plastic cap (I think it is the trigger valve) above the trigger spring that goes up into the head. I thought that an O-ring went in between these parts but the ring I have is too larger to fit into the bore. What am I missing here?

Since I can't see the actual unit, I'd suggest that you visit the site listed below. Enter the model and you will get a complete parts breakdown diagram. Verify the parts that you have in hand with those listed to be sure you have the correct O-rings.

Feel free to post additional questions should the diagram not be enough.

Nbosb bostich nail gun air is leaking out trigger how to fix?

I am not familiar with that model number, however if your nailer has a round plastic trigger valve, it should be easy to replace. Most bostitch nailers use a TVA6 valve that sells for about $20.00. Better to replace the valve because, if plastic, the firing pin in the valve becomes very worn/loose over time and orings will not work. Easy to check. Remove the trigger and try moving the firing pin from side to side. If it moves, replace the valve. If your gun has a metal threaded-in valve, remove the valve and replace the orings with generic. Usually 2mm on the pin and 5mm on the inner spool. Local bearing company can measure them for you. Good luck.

the trigger valve could be causing a lot of your problems, you are correct in ordering the o rings and trigger valve, make sure to lightly coat the o rings before installl. If you have trouble with the valve I have detailed instructions in the TIP section on how to remove safely.

My paslode air framing nailer model 5350-90s is loosing air out of the trigger valve when I press on the trigger and the nail does not fire. What is the problem ?

Sounds like a bad O ring. There are rebuild kits you can get with a new set of O rings. Or you can have it done for about $30-50.

On the trigger of my Bostich Spiral load nail gun AND my Bostick trim nail gun air is leaking profusely from the trigger. Nail guns were not in use for about a year. When I first used them this weekend,...

A nail gun works on compressed air.
When you hook the air hose to the gun it fills a cylinder with air pressure.
When you pull the trigger. the cylinder pressure is released onto a firing pin that shoots the nail.
The air pressure line is also connected to the trigger and therefore the trigger has to be sealed.

When ever using a nail gun, you add a bit of gun oil in the back of the gun (not 3-in-1motor oil, it has to be non-detergent gun oil)

If you haven't used the gun in a while, it is best to oil up the gun and let the oil run down into the gun.
If you use anything but gun oil, the seals will give out.

Your trigger seal has given out. It is probably an 'O' ring. You can access it by taking it apart. Look for the O ring.
Bostich makes re-build kits for the different guns that you can buy on-line.
Back when I was in construction, there were several nail gun shops that sold and serviced nail guns, and sold nails to the contractors. I don't know if that business model is still active or if you have to send the guns to Bostich service center.

Bostich N88rh fires like a machine gun

You either have a piston stop bumper failure or some damaged orings. Look on the schematic and the piston stop bumper is number 11, part #107236. A lot of times the piston stop bumper will disintergrate due to becoming brittle from the compressed air and not having enough lubrication. Look for small plastic balls in the head under the valve. If you see little plastic pieces than that is what remains of the piston stop bumper. You will need to remove the valve from the head cap in order to inspect the bumper. Also inspect all orings. The slightest damage can have big effects. One other thing to look for is damage to the plastic valve that rides on 3 orings. (2 out and 1 in) I don't believe you have valve damage because you say it is firing like a machine gun. This is almost always the piston stop bumper.

Bostich nailer N79WWblows continous air

If the nailer is passing air from directly out of the trigger valve, it must be replaced (P/N-TVA11). If it is passing air from anywhere else, (eg back cap or front ) it needs an O-ring kit (P/N- ORK11)

I have a bostich framing nail gun and as soon as i hook my air hose up to it the air comes directly out through where the driver is, dont even have to pull trigger, can u help, need gun operating to make...

The o-rings need to be replaced and/or the trigger assembly is defective. Look around at local lumber yards for a "Bostich days" promotion. Often with the purchase of a box of nails, the Bostich rep will "service" up to 2 guns for free. If this is not an option for you because of time, you can purchase the o-ring kit and replace the rings yourself. This is not a difficult repair. Also, be sure to lubricate the guns with pneumatic oil frequently as this will keep the rings lubtricated and prevent them from drying out and leaking.

Hope this helps,
