SPRAY GUN LUBRICATION
Daily, apply a drop of •SSL-10 spray gun
lube at trigger bearing stud (20) and the
stem of the air valve (12) where it enters
the air valve assembly (16). The shank of
the fluid needle (32) where it enters the
packing nut (18) should also be oiled.
The fluid needle packing (17) should be
lubricated periodically. Make sure the
baffle (5) and retaining ring (1) threads are
clean and free of foreign matter. Before
assembling retaining ring to baffle, clean
the threads thoroughly, then add two
drops of SSL-10 spray gun lube to
threads. The fluid needle spring (29) and
air valve spring (11) should be coated
with a very light grease, making sure that
any excess grease will not clog the air pas-
sages. For best results, lubricate the points

NEW BAFFLE ASSEMBLY
The baffle design incorporates a tight,
press fit with the fluid tip, assuring a
positive air seal. With this design, the
baffle may pull away from the gun body
when the tip is removed and stay locked
onto the fluid tip. If this occurs, follow the
Ref. No. 2

A bench vise should be used for
convenience and to avoid damage
to the spray gun.
Secure the spray gun in a bench vise
with padded jaws, or use a rag to
avoid scratching the gun body.
Using a 1/2" socket, loosen the fluid
tip three (3) turns only, which will
leave about a 1/16" gap between the
baffle gasket and gun body. See
Figure 2. Do not loosen the fluid tip
more than three (3) turns, as
damage may occur.
Loosen fluid tip
3 turns only.
Place a 1" socket (12 pt.) over the fluid
tip so that it rests on the top surface
of the baffle. See Figure 3.
Press downward on the socket with
sufficient force to free the baffle from
the tip. See Figure 3.
The fluid tip and baffle can now be
removed normally from the gun.
