You can go to any Home Depot and buy compressor oil for your compressor. Your operators manual should tell you what the level should be, however if you don't have one, filling it with oil until it fills the glass tube about half way should be sufficient.

Take it back to the shop as it is under warranty and working on it yourself will void it.

Obviously, make sure you have read the manual carefully.

WIDTH 19.0" (4826 mm)
LENGTH 21.25 (539.8 ram)
AIRTANK CAPACITY (GALLONS) 15 Gallon (56.8 fiters)
SCFM @ 90 PSI (620.5 kPa_ 5._

cant get fixya comment to work so will edit here...

The 200/160 are the typical DS55168 settings from factory and meet the 90 psi @ 5.4 cfm rating.

Pressures can be adjusted to a MAXIMUM 225/185 with a resulting lower cfm rate.

I'm not familiar with "type 9". Likely nothing special just different setting from factory?

The nails for these guns are no longer produced by Spotnails. I am a Spotnails dealer and you can have them made by special order but the cost is not worth it. Buy a modern gun that uses something more common like the Paslode/Senco style 34 degree clipped head nails or a coil nailer. The MNS5 was a good tool but used an odd nail (I believe it is 15-17 degree without looking it up) and the tool has long been obsolete. It's too bad as I still have some parts and guns.
