Default Pneu Squeezer DIY Rebuild

I've checked the archives regarding overhauling pneumatic squeezers. Several good leads on who does it. However, is there a manual or set of instructions for doing the job oneself? That I did not find.

Can anybody help me help myself?

John,
It sounds like you're wanting to do the repair yourself, but if you decide to send it off, I would highly recommend Joe at Atlantic Air Tool.

He is very nice to work with, does a great job and is very cost effective. He overhauled my squeezer for me and I was very pleased at what he charged.

http://www.atlanticairtool.com/ is their website, and they have manuals on there if memory serves correct:

I can tell you this, if you send your Squeezer to Joe Krzyzewski he will get it like brand new for a very honest price. Here is his contact info:

I just got my squeezer back from Joe today. Sent it out on Monday, they got it on Wed and I think it went back out the same day. Looks great. I dropped it during the fuel tank build and finally realized that the safety wasn't really working correctly and the trigger lever was dragging across the case, scoring it slightly. Joe replaced the trigger and got it back to me for a very reasonable price.
