Paslode Impulse Driver Blade Broke


My Paslode 900420 impulse framing nailers' driver blade just broke (about 2" long piece) and fell out after shooting a nail. Anyone out there that has done work on these?

I would like to replace the driver blade as well as give this tool a thorough tune-up replacing any wear items that anyone is aware of. If someone happens to have a list of part numbers to buy for this project I would much appreciate it.

Also, if any of you have done what I'm about to do, is there anything I should know? And how difficult is it?

Thanks!

Paslode Impulse Driver Blade Broke


In fact I would settle for anyone to tell me which part on this diagram is the blade driver. I can't seem to find it. The blade that fell out was about 3/8" wide and about 1/8" thick and as far as length not sure as 2" of it broke off.

I have an email into Paslode parts, but have yet to hear back.

Kirk is correct. 49 is the piston assembly, which includes the driver blade. Unless the cylinder is damaged, the piston and rings are typically all you should replace.

That was my assumption that the driver blade was attached to the piston, but just wanted to make sure. thanks Kirk and Loneframer.

Loneframer, have you yourself dug that deep into one of these? I know you have a lot of impulse guns, just curious how difficult it is?

And is there any items you replace when tuning these up? The o-rings or the like?
