Question about Garden
Serial No. HS1950889 also will it handle a 18 or 20" bar
Check the fuel filter at the end of the fuel line in the tank... sometimes it will get hung up in the tank and won't be immersed in the gas. also check to see if there is enough fuel line in the tank to ensure that the fuel filter stays immersed in the fuel in the tank.

Spitting gas is not good. It's probably leaking there instead of going into the carburetor where it can fire the engine. Need to find that leak and change the hose it's running out of. You get gas to the carburetor by gravity and vacumn from the engine. With a broken hose you loose all gravity effects and vacumn that would pull the gas to the carburetor.
Homelites from the beginning of time have spilled mixed gas down over the cylinder head by the spark plug from the gas cap. Then you go out and cut massive amounts of wood and all the sawdust swirls around the head, sticks to the oily gas residue and sooner or later it builds up in the cooling fins surrounding the cylinder head. This causes the chainsaw to run hotter because it can't cool efficiently and the gas tank is right there close to the head and cylinder so it absorbs a lot of extra heat, so much so that i've seen the gas inside the tank literally boiling hot which forces it out of the gas cap vent and spills more oily gas mixture over the head to accummulate more sawdust and cause more overheating. Care should be taken not to overfill the gas tank. Keep the saw and cylinder head clean of buildup so it can run cooler and change gas tank caps often so that you have a clean vent incase you do build up pressure.

Most of the old Homelites were 32:1. I eliminated the mix problem for all my equipment when I started using a synthetic 2-cycle oil called OPTI-2. Somehow it works for all 2-cycle saws/trimmers/blowers etc. I've got equipment that's 20+ years old and still running strong with the OPTI-2.

there normaly a 40-1 mix,,,i run mine in a 30-1 mix,, now i know your going to say "thats a bit ritch!" but my saw is 20 years old now? and i look at it this way,,,if you can see smoke you got oil?
if you run it on two stroke or engine oil you need to run it on the ritch side,,,so stick on 30-1
