Homelite XL Chainsaw

rmm1November 13, 2010

My saw has another hole in the gas tank other than the one for the fuel line. Its on the outside corner of the tank towards the top(the pull rope side) Should there be something in it like a plug? It is spitting gas out when it runs.

rmm: This may well for the auxiliary breather vent line or crankcase impulse line back to the tank . You will have to forward further Model Designation info . There are a few Homelite Enthusiast's within the Forum who can give you detailed info once they have this necessary data.

The UT# is 105064. S/N 780370220. I found a parts diagram. It says that there should be a duck bill check valve there. Does anyone know where I can get one? The part # is 69451 or 89451, its hard to read. Thanks
