I have an old 3/8" SQ drive air wrench, model 1804-A-136 that is not working anymore. Is repairing it possible?

Question:

I have an older 3/8" SQ drive air wrench, model 1804-A-136 that I have used very rarely. It does not work now and was wondering if repair is possible or feasible?
Thanks for your help.

Answer:

Hello Jerry,
You've got an old unit but a little work horse. I feel that you may have had some condensation trapped in it after your last use and rust developed internally causing your inoperative condition. Since we discontinued that unit several years ago no parts exist but, I feel that if you shoot some WD 40 into the air inlet and let it set for a week or so, (then using a rubber mallet to tap the unit a few times and add the air) it should come back to life. I don't know if you oiled it prior to storing it away but all air tools need to be lubed during and after usage to prolong their useful life.

Thanks for asking,

Carl
