How to change the seal in a Graco RAC X tip (nozzle) holder?


The steps are quite simple once you know how the Graco RAC X seal tip, nozzle and tip holder are put together. We received a request from a customer to take him through how to change the tip seal, our response summary is listed below, and we have included a short video for those that enjoy a visual instruction instead.

1. Compress metal gasket (saddle) and plastic gasket – this is the small circular metal piece with a hole in it and a black plastic ring.

2. Place seals at the base of the tip (nozzle)

3. Hold the tip holder in one hand with the metal nut pointing towards you (as if it would spray into your hand), and insert seals into the tip (nozzle) holder

4. Position the seals and withdraw the tip (nozzle)

5. Insert the tip (nozzle) into the tip (nozzle) holder

6. Screw the nozzle holder onto the gun
