I should have asked, How long have you been using this valve? If it has served you well for many years then I would not change a thing you have been doing or add a different filter. 9 or 10 years is good life for those parts I would say.

Now, I watched a few minutes of your video I see you have a FRL on there. Looks like an SMC brand.

Nice repair and video. What did you end up at $ 3bucks worth of o-rings and your time versus $275 well done dude.

I've had the hammer since 2007 or 2008.

9-10 years on a air valve. Probably would not change the oil you are using. Is there a moisture trap in front of the air oiler ?

[QUOTE=JWBIRONWORKS;682492]

In my mind it has allen head screws and end plates it has to be repairable so
I set out to prove Josh wrong. 2 hours and $2.47 later the hammer works like new.

I didn't watch the whole video but kinda skipped through it. I'm figuring on watching later tonight. ..

Good job on the repair. ..I read what everyone was saying and I have to agree, a very nice shop. Full up and organized aren't usually said together. .

Is that argon bottle in the background tied down??..(.just messin with ya) it might show it later, I can't tell from what I saw... (about 5 minutes jumping around )

275 bux for a replacement part? No user serviceable parts?

I used to say if someone else put it together I can dang sure get it apart..

Yes, there's one in on the hammer and one coming off of each compressor.
