Hi everyone, found this great website through google. I have a problem with my dads old XL2. A few years ago, this saw ran fine, but it broke the pull cord so we kind of put it in the back of the shed and use our Stihl to get odd jobs done. Well, my dad wants me to get this little saw going because it's alot lighter and easier to use for him. So I got it out the other day, put a new cord on it, took the carb off and sprayed it pretty good with carb cleaner and got it to run. It ran pretty bad, so I figured the gas was old. I dumped the old gas and tried it. Seemed a little better, but still wouldn't run right. Well, I take the carb off and head to our local shop to see if I can get a rebuild kit for the carb. The only markings I could find on the carb said Tillotson 3. Turns out the shop guys say it's a Tillotson HK series carb. They gave me a rebuild kit RK-32-HK. So I cleaned the carb out real good again, put the new gaskets, diaphrams, and needle in and got the carb back together. While I was at it, I put in a new fuel line, new fuel filter, new air filter, new spark plug, new on-off switch, and a new duckbill valve into the hole in the top of the gas tank. Put the saw back together, yanked it a few times and it started to fire, then nothing. Pulled it until it flooded itself. Took the carb apart again and checked to see that I got everything put together right, and I'm pretty sure I do. Got it back together, now I can get it to fire up a few seconds and then die, let it set a few minutes and it'll fire up and die again. So I'm thinking that I don't have something adjusted right on the carb. This little carb only seems to have a L adjustment, the H hole seems to not be an option from the factory. Also have an adjustment screw the sets next to the throttle lever that the trigger works. Like I say, right now I can get it to run for a few seconds, holding the trigger down with a wide open choke, then it dies off on it's own. So here are my main questions. 1. What are some general starting points on the adjustment screws on the carb? I take them down and back them both out 1 1/2 turns. Is a good place to start more or less? Anyone have a diagram or picture of how this carb is supposed to be assembled? Maybe I don't have the diaphrams in the right place? 2. I seem to be getting spark, but what's the gap supposed to be from the coil to the flywheel? 3. Where can I get a parts list and schematic for this chainsaw? No UT# on the saw, just a serial # 50371196. Anyone know where I can get parts for a saw this old? 4. Can any of you think of something I might be missing here? Just want to thank any of you all ahead of time to help me out here. Me and my dad love our old Homelite chainsaws, and I'm sure alot of you guys consider them junk saws, but we always seem to grab them over our Stihls because they're just fun to use!
