Kawasaki 3/8 Air Ratchet #691313


I put some oil in the air inlet as required, but when I connect the air all that happens is air blows out the outlet. The Anvil does not turn. Is there a safety switch that I cannot find?


Hello Bob,

Sorry I overlooked the subject that indicated the model number. Now I understand.  Hook up the air to the unit, depress the trigger and rap the head of the ratchet with a runner mallet.  Sometimes at the factory, during testing, the crankshaft (located in the head) stops on top, dead center, and requires a rap on the head to break it loose.

Thanks for asking,
