Oil type for air compressor
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.

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?

I have a Spotnails Framing Nailer MNS-5 and need a manual or a list of nail types i can use.
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.
