Homelite XL2 chainsaw
[Return to Topics]

I was recently given a homelite chainsaw, but I would have too fix it. My question is Why is there 2 holes in the fuel tank? Is there supposed to be 2 lines going into it? I would appreiate, if someone could help me.

Thank You

Yes 2 holes, only 1 line the hole towards the carb is the fuel line. The other hole to the outside of housing is for a check valve (duckbill)pt.#69451.

one of the lines is for the suction side of the carburator and the other line is for return of excess gas.Go to your local homelite dealer and get a copy of the fuel system from his parts manual.Make sure that you install the lines correctly and make sure that you put a new gas filter on the end of the suction line.If you do not hook this up correctly the saw won't run right and you will suck up trash in your carburator.

I also have a Homelite Textron chainsaw.

Could you tell me how to adjust the carburator.
How much to turn the screw for air and the screw for fuel ?????

Depends on the carb maker...usually from a soft bottoming...CCW 1 to 1 1/2 turns. More than likely you will need to replace the diaphragms & gaskets at a minimum. I do keep those in hand.
Best of luck.

Thank you very much on the reply.I'm am not from the US and we don't have a Homelite dealer here.Could you send me a .pdf, .txt manual or instruction or advice of somekind on the carburator adjustment.
You see i have 2 screws (one for air and the other for fuel).Should i do "CCW 1 to 1 1/2 turns"
to both of them or for just one of them??

The 2 adj screws are for the Low speed & the Hi speed adjustments.
Start with both at 1 1/8 turns...turn the Lo to the left if the saw stutters or stalls when you try to accellerate...the Hi turns to the right to max RPM, then back 1/16.
I do ship to international locations Up to an ounce is $0.85 for shipping.
