it's minus the piston
I've asked CP in the UK, they say it's completely obsolete, no parts
or drawings remain.
I have a CP no.2, which is a shorter stroke version of the same thing,
with the same bore (1 1/16"). I hoped the piston would be common to a
range of stroke lengths, but no, the piston from the No 2 won't work
in the No 40, it just blows out without any indication of being blown
I would like to get the No 40 working - does anyone out there know
enough about air hammer design to advise on how? The piston from the
smaller gun is just a hardened solid steel slug, maybe 3 1/2" long,
with a waisted section towards one end.
