Look on ebay for rebuild kit # RN46-RK , this kit has all the parts needed to restore to like new. The kit is easy to install and should last for many jobs to come. Be sure to oil the nailer once or twice a day with a few drops or bostitch oil or any nailer oil. It is sold a Lowes for about $3. Good luck

Ez test. With nails removed, and door open driver should be at top of cylinder. If driver is down replace piston oring. If driver is up, lightly strike nose of gun against softwood. The driver should stay at top. If driver drops with light tap replace piston oring. If driver stays at top dry fire the nailer against softwood. The driver should hit the softwood leaving a mark and return to top. If driver stays down or does not travel all the way up pull the cylinder and make sure checkband is installed. Checkband is oring or rubber band covering series of holes on lower part of cylinder. Good luck
The ignition unit can fail at any time, before replacing try removing the top cover and pulling the plug leed away from the cylinder, i have seen the leed wear against the cylinder and short out,also check the wires that go down to the unit, these can also short out, it is not a simple task to change the ignition unit, you need to have all the from end off the machine to get to it
May be due to broken tip. Easy to check. Remove nails and leave door open. With door open, lightly tap the nose of the gun against coiled rubber hose or soft wood. The driver should stay at top position. If driver falls to bottom of the cylinder, replace piston oring. Now press nose of the gun against old coiled up air hose or soft wood and squeeze and hold trigger. The gun will fire and the driver should stay in the down position untill you release the trigger (if not single fire trigger, if single fire trigger remove trigger and press the trigger pin with finger). While the driver is down, make sure that the tip extends past the nose about 1/4 inch (if air leaks past the nose in this position, replace lower bumper). If the driver does not extend past the nose, replace driver. Good luck
By the way you're talking, the bike is equipped with a single fire ignition. Your use of the term "top winding" indicates that there is a "bottom winding" or two windings on the coil. A single fire coil will have three small connections on it. A dual fire coil will only have two primary connections. In the dual fire system, both spark plugs fire at the same time where they fire individually on the single fire. Please check the ignition system out further and tell me if it's a stock ignition system or some type of aftermarket system. Either way, no spark to the rear cylinder indicates a bad ignition unit.
If you are sitting on the bike the left coil has an orange/white wire on the top and a white wire on the bottom.The HT leads go to plugs 1 4.The right coil has an orange/white lead on the top and a black/yellow wire on the bottom.The other HT leads go to 2 3.It doesnt matter which HT lead goes to either plug as thboth HT leads on the same coil fire at the same time (wasted spark system).Hope this has helped or you have already sorted it out.
You have to step down on the petal in the back of the grill, place hands on each side of the top of the grill and press down hard..took us awhile to figure this out. We just did not push down hard enough. Hope this helps.
