As long as the line fits tight so its not sucking air you should be ok.. try changing out the plug if its old. Clean out the air filter too.. But the line should be ok as long as its tight..

SOURCE: Need replacement Chain oil pump
Go to the Homelite web site, which will get you to HCPI Electronics Parts catalog. You will need the model number. The parts are illustrated as a break-away drawing for various portions of the saw. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: have trouble starting
First is the gas mix right? 2 ids the air filter clean? 3. have you replaced the tank fuel filter to make sure it's getting gas? 4. is the plastic line cracked? 5. adjust both carb screws all the way down gently then reverse the screws counter clockwise 2 and 1/2 turns, this should allow it to start and run, once it has started let it warm up and adjust the idle for it to run smooth without dying. Once its running rev it up to make sure it does not have any dead spots in it then try a test cut, if it bogs down adjust the gas screw to in rich it just a little and try cutting again if it does not bog down you should be set. there are other things that can cause it to run poorly like a bad carb gasket or loose screws on the carburetor. If you need more help post here and I will give you some other things to look at.

Give Sam a call at Hawkins and Milnor in Shelbina Missouri. THey specialize in older homelite parts and they have the intake boots made to factory specs. The material is of better quality and is not old, rotten NOS parts that have been on the shelf for years. They are a pain to change in the first place. Might as well put a good one in and do it once.

Turn both screws CW to stops (lightly), then back out each CCW 1-1/2 turns. This should get the engine running if it will. If it does not, check the lower diaphragm on the carburetor for hardness or cracking. You appear to be running on prime only--the carburetor doesn't seem to be pumping in fresh fuel. You may need to do a carburetor clean and re-kit. Check the fuel line condition and the fuel filter in the tank for plugging. Make sure the muffler and air cleaner are not plugged. Once you get the engine to continue running, warm the engine up. Open the throttle and adjust the H needle CW--the engine should start to speed up, but still 4-stroking. The proper setting is 4-stroking, but immediately 2-stroke when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L needle CW so that the engine runs fairly smoothly, yet will allow the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set idle speed screw so that the chain stops turning, but the engine continues to run. Hope this helps!
