Product Information
Manufacturer: Porter Cable
Product Number: A08368
Classification: Part
Weight: 0.03 lbs.

This unthreaded trigger valve assembly is a genuine OEM assembly used in nailers. It includes the trigger valve, 1 rubber washer, and 3 roll pins. The trigger valve controls the flow of air in the tool which drives the piston and creates the nailing action. If the valve becomes stuck, the seals wear down, or the trigger breaks the nailer will leak air, struggle to fire, or not fire at all. Begin the repair by switching off the tool and using a push pin to remove the trigger. Remove the roll pins that secure the trigger valve and pull the trigger valve out of the housing. Insert the new valve into the housing, install the pins to hold it in place, and secure the stay pin with the washer.
