    Moving forward in the game of “whatisit” on my Homelite, I got it freed up and took the cylinder off. It had seized due to moisture/corrosion and the bore on this cylinder is quite good. The piston may even be salvageable. Haven’t been able to get the clutch off yet but put some oil on the threads and letting it sit.

    Part number 63012....2” bore so it’s narrowed down to 700 or 901. How do I determine it from there?

    Looks like she had a steady diet of 10W30.

    Did you try a couple of allen keys in the spanner wrench holes? I've had luck turning down a couple of keys so they fit into 2 of the 3 holes tight. Chuck them in a vice and turn the powerhead or use the claw on a hammer to hook them. I use a couple of heavy duty Ty-Raps to keep the ends of the allen keys from spreading when using the hammer method. The leverage from the hammer will turn the clutch off rather easily. Need to put the cylinder back on though I am guessing.

    They can be virtually impossible to remove with a drift alone.

    Good idea although I don’t have a vice with me. I was just trying a punch with no luck. It did free the cylinder though lol.

    I am still at a loss with this saw (posts 11430 and 11433 on page 572). I guess I need to get that clutch off and see what is underneath it. I have looked at a lot of these saws online and very few have the PTO side manual oil pump above the muffler like mine does. It appears that my muffler, air filter cover, and recoil are from a different saw. But still no answers on the rest. I guess I need to get that clutch off.

    I have a couple of possibilities for a spanner that might work. One I modified for the SXL clutch, I think it is the same if you want to borrow it.

    This clutch screws on the crank, doesn't it?

    Yes sir. It has an arrow pointing in which direction to remove as well.

    Alrighty homelite brain trust, I've been working on a 2100S and it is frustrating the crap out of me, I have replaced every single gasket rebuilt the carb replaced the seals and she still don't run very good.

    1st run characteristic is it takes a lot on the low end to get it to idle right, like 2-3 turns.

    2nd run characteristic is when you turn the high jet in she starts racing like it's not getting fuel so I'm not sure what's going on.

    Suggestions? Its a HL D series that takes a RK-98 kit. Can't remember the numbers off the top of my head

    I might check the fuel pump body, #19, on the IPL and the fuel pump cover, #26, for warping and air leaks. Leon did a video on that not too long ago.

    I am thinking the problem he discusses has a lot to do with many years under clamp load of the screws rather than whether or not it was used. Of course, over torquing would be bad too. Hope you find the trouble.

Buddy’s dad was moving and had a couple pieces he was letting go. One was this circular saw. So what did I get here ?! Are they a rare piece ? What saw is it based off ? Cc? Thanks for any info

    I'd happily trade a C51 or C72 for the circular saw, maybe one of my Xl900 series saws, but I'm running low on the big XL's. I haven't been over here for a while so I thought I'd post a couple pics of the last two auctions I went to. Got a running Super 1050 for $150, and a 150 Auto and C51 for $5 each, then yesterday got a Super EZ and another XL for $2 each, Joe.
