Attempting to mend an IM350. Where on earth does the lock bar follower belong pt no 40 + spring pt no 81? Either explain which other parts it should be housed within, e.g. adjacent to part nos ---------, or explain exactly what it does - yes, it's got something to do with the follower (pt no 75) but, inside or outside that assembly. I would be very grateful for advice. John

    Apologies for causing confusion. The tool I am referring to is a PLASLODE cordless framing nailer (gas powered) - model IM350 / 90CT.

    I believe the Lockout Bar Follower has something to do with the situation when the gun has run out of nails - exactly where does it locate and where does the spring have its seating. the situation arose when I disassembled the tool to replace a faulty Molded Circuit Assembly

    thanks heatman101. In between times (in the UK) I had got it sussed. Howevever, again thanks for your efforts (this was the 1st time had dealt with this tool so I understand why you wouldn't wish to dismantle such a tool merely to send me a photo.
    Many thanks - rating 99.99% - the 0.01 is owing to the time difference between the US & UK

The part number 40 sticks up so that the square part on the side of 75 hits the tab on 40 and pushes against the spring... so the spring needs to be between part 40 and the tip of the gun...
When the part 75 gets to the 40 part it pushes against the spring which stops the gun from firing...
I would take a picture of my gun but I really don't want to take it apart just for that...and I can't gat a picture that will help you without taking it apart...

Comment back if you can't figure it out and I will try to help more...

My paslode im350 will only fire at 90 degrees and not in any other positions has any one got any ideas what the problem is?

You or who ever worked on your tool last didn't replace the lock out spring. I see this all the time. Its a little spring that holds the lock out down so the safety can engage. I bet when u try to fire the gun upside down the safety doesn't go all the way back.

Paslode im350 fires every time,but nails dont come out

Unless you have the wrong nails or a problem with the feeder and/or feeder spring it is probably dirty and the driver is hanging up on the cylinder. These tools need to be cleaned and lubed after using them for some time. If you look on Paslode's website there is a manual that explains how to do it. There are also videos on YouTube that show this. It is somewhat complicated and the tool has to be disassembled quite a bit. If you don't feel comfortable doing this work then you may want to want a servicing dealer that repairs these tools. There is a rubber o-ring on the head and a filter on the top that should be replaced too. Here is a link to the cleaning guide.

How do you replace front broken coil spring on 1998 ford windstar? do you have a diagram, pictures or video?

Strut and Spring Assembly Removal
  1. Raise the vehicle on a hoist.
  1. Remove the front wheel and tire assembly.
  1. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: To avoid damage to the 6mm drive hole in the front stabilizer bar link ball stud, do not use an Allen wrench to break loose or tighten to final torque the front stabilizer bar link-to-front shock absorber nut.
    Remove the stabilizer bar link retaining nut and disconnect the link from the strut.


  1. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Do not allow the halfshaft to move outboard. Over extension of the CV joint may result in the separation of internal parts, causing failure of the joint.
    Remove the strut assembly-to-steering knuckle pinch bolt. If required, slightly spread the steering knuckle to ease the removal of the strut. Pry down on the lower control arm and roll the strut base out of the knuckle. Do not pry on the halfshaft, as damage may result. Wire the steering knuckle up to prevent the halfshaft from moving outboard.
  1. Partially lower the vehicle.
  1. Support the strut assembly and remove the top three mount-to-strut tower nuts. Remove the strut assembly from the vehicle.


  1. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: The strut assembly is under spring tension. Attempting to disassemble the strut without properly compressing the spring can result in injury.
    Using a suitable spring compressing tool, slightly compress the strut spring to relieve initial tension. Loosen the upper rod nut. Continue to compress the spring until the tension is relieved. Remove the upper rod nut.


  1. Remove all upper mounting parts, coil spring, and coil spring isolators from the strut and save them for reassembly. Carefully note the position of each part during removal to ensure proper reassembly. Inspect each part for wear and damage as it is removed.
  1. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: The bearing and seal assembly is press-fit onto the upper mount. The mount washers must be installed in the correct orientation.
    NOTE: Be sure to check the spring insulator for damage before assembly. If the outer metal splash shield is bent or damaged, it must be carefully bent back, so it does not touch the locator on the bearing and seal assembly.

    NOTE: New gas struts are shipped with the rod in a locked down position. To extend the new strut, remove the external tie down and/or rotate the upper end of the rod, counterclockwise.

    Install the coil spring insulator, coil spring, and upper mounting parts to the new strut assembly. Make sure the spring is correctly seated in both spring seats.


Item Part Number Description 1 ? Dust Boot (Part of 18045) 2 N803826-S100 Front Shock Absorber Mounting Bracket Nut
(3 Req'd) 3 N803952-S100 Washer 4 N808625-S100 Front Shock Absorber Nut 5 18183 Front Shock Absorber Mounting Bracket 6 3B455 Front Suspension Bearing and Seal 7 5310 Front Coil Spring 8 5414 Front Spring Insulator 9 18045 Front Shock Absorber A ? Tighten to 35-40 Nm
(25-30 Lb-Ft) B ? Tighten to 55-63 Nm
(40-46 Lb-Ft)
  1. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Do not over tighten the lock nut; damage to the lock nut or piston rod could result.
    Install new rod lock nut and tighten it to 55-63 Nm (40-46 lb-ft).


  1. Remove the spring compressing tool.
  1. Position the strut assembly into the vehicle. Install the three mount-to-strut tower nuts. Tighten the nuts to 35-40 Nm (25-30 lb-ft).


  1. Partially raise the hoist.
  1. Position the strut assembly to the steering knuckle. Install the pinch bolt and tighten it to 115-132 Nm (85-97 lb-ft).
  1. Position the stabilizer link to the strut assembly and install the retaining nut. Tighten the nut to 90-100 Nm (66-74 lb-ft).


  1. Install the front wheel and tire assembly.
  1. Lower the vehicle.
hope this helps

I have taken apart my paslode impulse framing nailer to remove a nail that had got lodged in the nail channel,i removed the lodged nail,but now have a part and a small spring that im not sure where they...

they go under the plate where the follower is. What you need to do is remove the screws that hold the channel to the side where the follower is located and then lift the steel plate up. Pull back on the follower and the lockout bar and spring fit into a recess that you will see (once you get it to this point you will see what I am talking about), set the spring and bar into the recess and push it a couple times to make sure installed properly. replace the laarge steel plate and hold in place while reassembing the nose piece (4 screws, 2 on each side) and then reassemble the rest of the tool. Let me know if you need more assistance. If I have helped you would you please vote accordingly, Thank you

My paslode IM350 fires about once every 20

by service im assuming you mean replacing the o-ring and seals/gaskets. If not do that. But if you have it may be more of an internal problem with the air valve leaking around the piston.

Paslode 900420 piece fell out

Be sure to remove the metal nose piece that covers the lockout bar when assembled. It may be stuck to the other half of the gun. Replace the bar and the spring and put the metal nose piece in its position over the lockout bar. At this point the metal nose piece will be on the opposite side. This will allow you to replace the 2 halves carefully so as not to loose the spring.
