Leaking air behind the trigger


If you take the gun apart you will see a small o-ring on the trigger side that needs replacement and possibly the spring on the media adjuster side as well

My husky framing nailer leaks air around trigger


Leak around trigger could be trigger valve internal orings or orings on the outside of the trigger valve making contact against the body of the gun. Spray soapy water to determine where the air is leaking from. If air is leaking around the outside of the valve, most likely the orings were cut upon installation of the valve. If leaking from internal valve, most likely worn or broken oring; easy to fix if you have a source for orings.

To remove the trigger valve for service or inspection (take close-up photo of trigger area for reference ):
disconnect airline, remove nails, remove trigger retainer pin, remove trigger, remove roll pin /s holding trigger valve in place (use 3mm punch to remove retainer roll pins which are located in the body of the gun just above the trigger valve). With retainer pin/s removed and with gloved hand (under trigger valve), apply air pressure to gun to blow out the trigger valve (use lower pressure to push out trigger valve because it could come out with force.). With trigger valve in hand notice that there are two slots or groove cut neer top of the valve where the retainer pins rest, you will need to reinstall valve into body with slots aligned to retainer pins. Remove retainer pins holding trigger together to pull out internal valve. Good luck and post again if your have other question about the trigger valve.

Air leaks when triggered and no nail


Make sure no nails in gun. With air connected listen for leaking thru nose of the gun also. If leaking thru nose slightly, air is getting past the cylinder seal oring and/or top of cyl is not seating against headvalve. Repair leak to nose of gun before trying to fix head leak. With no air leaking thru nose of gun, add plenty of white grease to orings in the head (one oring at a time) to see if leak is less and/or grease will streak behind the leaking oring. Then repair as needed. May need slightly thicker oring or sand surface where oring makes contact to remove scratches that are allowing air to pass. Also air can enter the head thru the small port in the gasket leading to the head (make sure that the gasket is sealing).

My 1997 dodge intrepid sprung a leak in the fuel line , and to replace the line my mechanic says he has to drop the exhaust system . could this be true!! he wouldn't even give me a price! Thank You ...


Well, it can be true. I presume that there is an access problem where the lines are behind the exhaust system. it is not major to drop your exhaust.

How do i fix my triger leaks


Unfortunately, trigger leaks are only fixable by replacing the trigger mechanism. Can you update this with the make and model? I should be able to direct you to a parts location. Trigger assemblies usualy run around $20 or so.

Nails do not advance under driver. Sometimes a weak shot.


There is a gasket giving out, either the one behind the "hammer" or the one just behind the trigger. Has it been leaking any extra air lately? If the trigger has pressure it will most likely be the upper seal. This is easy to replace, with parts available at most large hardware and tool stores, and requires only basic hand tools.

Iwata w400 air leak behind trigger problem


Have you traced the exact spot of the leak?
I will assume you have not. the reason it's important is because if there is a crack in the o-ring seat there is nothing you can do. So trace the leak. Try a small amount of auto air conditioner leak detector or something similar even ink from an ink pen will work. Place it in the air inlet, hook up your air line and trigger your gun for a 10 to 15 seconds. disassemble your trigger and see if you can locate the offending spot. Though this method has worked for me in the past, it's not something I would normally recommend. However the gun you have is to expensive to just write off.
The alternative is to contact Iwata and seek help.
Good luck.

Air leak on framing gun


You can repair this gun. Parts and breakdown are at www.bostitch.com look for service /parts and enter your model number. There you will the parts available for purchase. You will need the tva11 trigger valve. Easy to install. Remove roll pins that hold trigger and trigger valve. Remove the trigger to expose the tva11 valve. With the roll pin/s removed that hold the trigger valve you will be connecting air supply. Use heavy glove to catch valve as you apply air pressure. You may reduce pressure to airline to reduce pop-out force. Before you install the new valve check port for sharp edges and debris. Good luck with your repair.
