Looking for an air filter for an old Homelite 550. Any idea who might have one? Looks very similar to a Homelite XL-12 filter. Are they interchangeable? Great old saw, goes through a 4' x 95' Torrey Pine like butter! Thanks in advance for your help.

Good Tip And Good To See Ewalk�s Info! I have been missing his tips and experience. I have been cutting my own foam filters for "small" engines for years (70s). This started when I finally found a foam equivalent to what I was seeing in Briggs mowers and Poulan S25 saws that could take the environment (heat/oil/etc) w/o deteriorating. Is this common to fit your own cut foam filter if it is working as well?

Seeing No Filter Kills Me!!

Hey Loger good to see your still at it . Hows the heat in Texas , pretty muggy here 90 F yesterday . I agree you can find filter membrane at most Hvac Supply Stores locally that can me cut to fit in most cases.However Scott has most of what I need so I use him whenever I need a part source for older saws . Keep up the good work Loger .
