Sounds like not a problem at all. If this happens when just the ignition is on and before the bike has been started.- This is normal operation. The fuel is just signaling reserve as it does not yet have a reading and any oil light on any bike would stay on or flash before the bike has started/been running.

Primer button will not fill up


The primer bulb pulls fuel from the carb, into the bulb, and pushes it back to the tank. If the bulb does not fill there will be a number of reasons why, firstly if the saw is new, there will be oil in the carb from the starting prosess at the factory, the saw will start without fuel in the bulb, but will take many more pulls to get it going, once the saw starts and runs for a few minutes the oil in the carb will clear, and the bulb will fill normally when depressed, if your arm is not up to cranking the engine many times, remove the top cover, remove the air filter, dribble some fresh fuel/oil mix down the filter elbow, the saw will start after a few pulls. If the saw is a used machine the problem may well be a blocked fuel filter in the tank.

See if it will start with a little splash of fuel down the carb.

If it starts for a second you probably have a plugged main jet.

The mowers collect a little bit of fuel in the bottom of the carb and then water comes along and it makes rust and gunk and turns the brass stuff all green. You remove the main jet and clean the two holes on the bottom and the little tiny hole at the top of the threads *(you should wire brush the threads and get a tiny piece of wire strand to clean this jet.)

I know you ran the mower till it ran out of gas....but that was only till it ran out of enough gas to fuel the main jet. There was still fuel residue in the fuel line and the bowl.

This should be a fast fix though. Good luck and be careful!

Decompression valve for Homeliye XL-700 chain saw.


With the age of the chainsaw and the scarity of available parts, it would be major undertaking to even attempt to install a decomp valve into this chainsaw and the result could end up ruining the saw for good.

If I might make a suggestion that you either sell this, as there are many collectors of classic chainsaws such as the XL-700 and you might do better with a newer saw that is easier to start and use.

Either that, or just accept that starting these older saws are more difficult.

As to the C.U. rating for this saw, it is a 4.7 Cu. Inch displacement.

Here's an online manual wih a parts breakdown and exploded line drawings for the XL-700, in case you want to tinker with the saw.

Maybe it wasn't flushed and there was still some old oil in it.
Do these things have a level indication?
If the level is right, start the bike and run it for a minute or so, watch the oil light. Then stop it, leave it a few mions to let the oil settle in the sump and check it again.
What I mean by flushing out, have a look at how it's done on a different type of bike -
