Old Homelite ChainSaws (Really Old)
« on: August 20, 2018, 08:59:02 AM »
So I was left these two by my grandfather and they both run. The blue one runs but seems to lose power when cutting. Is this something we can still get parts for? The only markings I see on it is Homelite Jet, everything else is rubbed off.

They are over 60 years old, parts supply dried up years ago. You might find donor saws on e-bay, garage sales, farm auctions etc. They are fun to tinker with but forget them as a go to work saw.
old age and treachery will always overcome youth and enthusiasm

Half the battle is getting them to run first. Second is finding the parts .I've got a Zip myself and  some kind of a red one much like that .I may or may not ever restore them .Very low on my priority list . Restoration of anything is not for everybody .Bryce S in Washington state,St Marys I think could be a source of parts as well as Bob in Maryland New York .I've dealt with both in my never ending search for parts ---when the mood strikes me .
With that thing dying in the cut it could be a carb needing a rebuild or just plain out of tune .Good luck  :)
