    I'm interested in a Homelite Super EZ listed for sale - looked to be in pretty good shape from the picture. I'm thinking that since these little saws have a compression release, that they might have a pretty high comp. value. I'll take my gauge when I check out the saw. What would be an accepable value?

    Remove the muffler cover and look at the piston.

    I have owned two that had 160+ but anything over 125 and it will run. Pulling the muffler cover to check the piston is a good idea, which is a very easy job on those saws.
