Homelite XL automatic
[Return to Topics]

I have an old Homelite XL automatic and
having trouble finding what year it is and how
to find the proper fuel- oil mixture. I also would
like to know how to measure the chain for a
replacement. The no. on the saw is T81
00667 and 50132.

Take the chain off and take it into a shop and tell them you want a new one like it. Chains are cheap. I can buy them for about 11 or 12 $$ but that is just about wholesale price. You'll probly have to pay $20 or so.

it lubricates some but the main job of oil in fuel is to carry heat away from the head. as a cooling agent, you'd want to add an extra splash in summer and a bit less in cold-country winter. too much oil will just make it dirty inside. i use 25/1 summer and 50/1 winter,mark the can "mixed" and dump it in everything from boat motors to snowmobiles to weed wackers.

mine is 32:1 fuel ratio and it has a 18" bar & chain. I did'nt buy it new so I don't know if that is the right size for the chain but it does good in oak or hickory.

i got a little XL and i think that 32-1 is about right, haven,t used it in a while since i got that husky but it has always been a good little saw.
