SOURCE: framing nailer, dewalt d51823 doesn't fire.

Generally, when you attempt to fire and only get an air sound at the trigger, the problem is air leaking past the orings in the head valve. Here are a few things to check and a simple test.
Remove the trigger from the gun so that you can have access to the trigger pin. Remove the nails from the gun. After removing the trigger and the nails, reconnect the air supply (check for 100psi) Place the nose of the gun against wood and with a very quick ****, depress the trigger pin all the way in. If the gun fires then the safety foot is not allowing the trigger to depress the pin all the way in. Make adjustments to safety and check for worn trigger and trigger retainer pin. If the gun does not fire, remove the head. Place the head on table and depress the headvalve all the way in with your thumbs then place a finger over the small vent-hole on the gasket surface and release thumb pressure. The headvalve should remain depressed due to vacuum in the valve and will pop up when you remove your finger on vent hole. If the headvalve does not stay in, air is leaking past the orings. Remove headvalve parts and use magnify lens to find small scratches on the surface where orings contact. Remove scratches with very fine sandpaper (300 - 400 grit) Make sure all the orings are not cut (use magnify lens) and fit snuggly. Lube with "Danco silicone grease" available at lowes in the plumbing department. It is used to lubricate orings in faucets. After re-assembly, do vacuum test as described above. If you have vacuum, head is ok. Make sure that the gasket seals around the vent hole where the head mates against the body. You should be good to go. Good Luck and email if you have other questions.

Nail gun leaking air at trigger

Worn orings always results in leaks/low power. On some nailers, better to replace whole trigger valve as seperate orings (very small) are hard to find and usually not in repair kit. Low power is usually worn driver oring. Easy test, remove nails and point nailer up then down again. If the driver seems to move up and down within the cylinder, time to replace oring/s. Look for repair/tune up kit that contains all the orings in the gun.

What causes it to shoot a double, or triple nail sometimes?

Make sure that orings are in good shape, lower bumper not cracked, (no leaks and the driver/piston stays at the top position, if piston drops a little or all the way down with no nails in gun, replace piston oring). Also check spring tension for feeder and two check paws in the door (feeder tension should be firm ). Adjust the timing screw up or down one or two turns and test (timing screw at the top of safety foot, head of screw pushes on the firing valve ). Test for lower bumper cracked. Remove nails and leave side door open. Hold the nose of the gun against coiled air hose or thick rubber and press and hold the trigger. The piston will stay down against the bumper until you release the trigger. No air should leak out the driver path. If air leaks past driver suspect bad bumper. Test action of feeder piston. Remove side cover to feed piston and clean debris. With air disconnected, move the feed piston back and forward. There should be a little resistance, if it moves very easy, suspect orings worn. As soon as you connect the air line. the feed piston should move forward with force, note the position of the feeder. Now with air disconnected, place nails on the feeder. The first nail should be well within the path of the driver. If not fully under driver path suspect worn feeder / feeder retainer pin, or debris inside feed piston chamber preventing piston from full forward travel (debris from inside of the gun will enter the feed piston chamber usually broken bits of lower bumper). Replace parts as needed. Good luck with your repair.

I have the 2 1/2 Hitachi for nailing siding. The nail gun had not been used for a couple of years, but now will only drive the nail half way in. Sounds like an air leak when driving the nail. I have...

Remove the nails and air supply. With side door open notice position of driver. Driver should be at top position with tip not visible. If driver is down and it moves within cylinder when you tilt nose up then down again, time to replace orings. If driver is down, it should extend past the nose about 1/4 inch (if driver is broken at the tip the end will look rough and nail will not drive in all the way). If driver extends past the nose more than 1/4 inch then lower bumper may be breaking up /cracked. Easy test for proper function. With nails removed and side door open, connect air to gun and dry fire gun against hard rubber or old coiled air-hose (with air connected and trigger depressed, no air should leak from trigger area, if air leaks when trigger is depressed, look for fault at trigger pin). Feeder should move back then forward in quick motion almost matching speed of driver and driver should not creep down between shots. No air should leak from nose of the gun (push nose against hard rubber and depress trigger and hold in this position, driver should stay down with very little or no air leaking out of nose, when you release trigger, driver will return). If air leaks out of nose while holding in this position, replace lower bumper. If a quantity of air leaks from valve in front of trigger, cylinder orings may need replacing or outer part of cylinder has fine scratches (remove scratches with 400 grit paper). Parts are available at Good lucki

Two cylinders was not getting fire so i had head rebuilt. MY question to you is from driver side to passenger side which cylinder is considered to be the number one cylinder?

number one is next to the crank pulley, you can look at the #1 spark plug on the cap and follow the wire to it. Regardless if the head was pulled they would have rebuilt all valves and shaved the head or it would leak.
