I have an old Homelite XL "little Red Saw" that hasn't been used in a while.
Need to cut down a tree, so trying to get it going.
Kind of a pain to work on these things.
Had to take it apart just to get the air filter out.
Sprayed starter fluid in, and it started.
The primer bulb is gone, fuel lines all cracked, I'm sure the carb is plugged up.
Has a Zama Carb.
The model number tag is gone.
Could not find any other numbers.
It was a good saw last time I used it.
How would I find out what the model number is???
