Campbell Hausfeld 1/2" impact wrench

I have had this impact wrench for about 20 years.  It never has been all that good. It had gotten so bad the 3/8" air ratchet was stronger.

Today I needed it to remove the nut from the tillers flywheel.  So I pulled it apart and washed the guts in the ultrasonic cleaner.   The parts did not show any discernable wear.  I reassembled it using ATF.  It works at least as good as it did when it was new.

The images here were taken to help in reassembly.

I also opened up the air chisel/hammer and coated the barrel with ATF.  Worked better too but I doubt it will continue to do so when it we get warmer temperatures.
