SOURCE: I have a husky impact wrench, set at 100psi, but

There should be an air control valve adjacent to the air inlet, is it opened sufficiently. Failing that there is a problem with the drive motor. It could be seized bearing or a broken vane. There is nothing you can really be doing wrong, it is a very straightforward tool.

From your description, it sounds as though the air wrench may be dry. What that means is that you need to oil the wrench through the air chuck attachment. Turn the wrench over and add several drops of air tool oil which you can get at most tool stores or home improvement centers. Then re-attach the air supply and try the wrench again. If the wrench has not been oiled for a long time, it's possible that the rotor or vanes are seized, in which case the tool will need to be dismantled and the vanes and/or rotor and bearing might need replacement. If that's the case, you'd be better off replacing the wrench. Make sure you have enough air pressure to run the tool. Air tools should be oiled frequently, expecially if they are used with un-dried compressed air or if they see heavy use.

One other thing - make sure the reversing switch is not in "mid" position and is either in forward or reverse.

Good luck sir

Best method to remove engine compensating sprocket on a shovelhead

A good air wrench works fine. Sometimes if someone has put too much Loctite on the nut, you may have to apply some heat to the nut. I've run into a few of these that the cheap Chinese air wrenches would not take off. Heck, I've run into them that a Snap-On air wrench wouldn't budge. I bought one of the Ingersol-Rand Titanium air impact wrenches and it works on all of them. Very powerful 1/2" wrench. But, unless you're going to use it a lot, it's too expensive to do one job with. I suggest you trailer the bike to a tire shop and pay them a few dollars to take the nut off with one of their wrenches. You'll probably need to take the proper sized socket with you.

Good Luck

Air Wrench Question

An impact wrench works in the manner suggested by the name of the tool: through the principle of impact. In order to understand how an electrical or air-powered impact wrench works, it helps to know first how a manually powered impact wrench operates. A manually powered impact wrench looks like a fat screwdriver; on the end where the screwdriver blade normally goes, you can snap on screwdriver bits or sockets.

Wrench Support

An impact wrench also requires a few special accessories. An air-powered impact wrench runs off of an air compressor with a tank – the air compressor should have at least a 10 gallon tank and be able to generate at least 3hp. Also, an impact wrench requires special sockets that are designed to withstand the high torque applied by the wrench.
