Album: Super XL Cracked Cylinder

The cylinder from my Homelite Super XL Automatic. The cylinder is pretty clean on the inside, and doesn't have any bad scoring, but it is broken into two pieces. The piston has some discolored, rough spots where the intake ports were, but it may be reusable. I will probably get a used cylinder for it.

    Judging by the burnt looking saw dust on the cylinder it had been running very hot, was the cylinder broken during disassembly? or was it running when this happend?

    The saw was not running when I got it, and I have only heard it fire and die once before rebuilding it. The previous owner told me it had been sitting for 10 years. The crankcase screws were loose causing the drivecase to wiggle slightly, and the low mixture needle was backed out about three turns instead of one, so when it did run it was probably running lean. I found the crack while trying to find a way to tighten the cylinder mounting nuts.
