Question about Porter Cable Cable No. FR350A Rnd Head Framer Kit
Trigger valve is part number A08368 or (old part #897458). Easy repair. Remove air supply hose, and nails. Remove pin holding trigger to expose trigger valve. Spray soapy water on valve to determin if air is leaking from outer part of valve (orings that contact the body) or around the pin. Remove roll pin/s holding trigger valve in body of gun (use 3mm pin driver, some guns have one pin others 2). With pins removed, apply air pressure to gun and valve will pop out (use heavy glove or rag in hand to catch valve because some valves come out with force). With trigger valve in hand notice the two groves on sides of valve that roll pins contact (when you re-insert valve align valve so groves align with roll pin in body). Remove the two pins holding inner workings of trigger valve. There are two orings on the trigger pin, three orings on the inner valve and two orings on the outer part of body of valve. Usually, the orings that cause leak are the two smallest on trigger pin and three on the inner valve (unless soapy water test indicates outer orings). Orings are available at dewalt service center by part number or if you like to tinker, Lowes has many usefull orings in the plumbing department or replace the whole valve for about $25. Use plenty of silicone paste lube on the orings (sold at lowes). Valve should press in without a great deal of force and be sure to align valve to roll pin in the body. Use 3mm punch to temp. hold valve in gun for test. Good luck
