Previous homeowner left a homelite b250 0 801 backpack BLOWER. What type of fuel does it use note no owners manual on homelite site

It uses Hi test gasoline. NOT regular. You'll be having hard start problems if you use regular grade fuel. The engine is a 2 stroke which means you MUST mix oil into the gasoline before you put it in the blower gas tank. The proper 2 cycle oil can be had at any home improvement store or garden departments in places like Walmart. Do not use automotive oil or you will have a huge amount of smoke when you run the blower. You can get an owners manual by going on Homelite's website too.

Model hpw2201. How do I fix an oil leak?

Don't know this model intimately but it looks similar to the Karcher which is really total **** nowadays as its all made of plastic. The motor has a weird switch mechanism but if it tries to run and the motor doesn't then 100:1 the motor is seized. Very unlikely it's the actual motor but the pump is a "swash" plate that opens 3 stainless steel thin flat valves. the bearing that the pump shaft goes through is a phospher-bronze plain bush with a seal each side and if this has dried out then you are screwed. Same if you model has steel roller bearings. However, if it does run and build up pressure and it stops because the output pressure is too high then the overload pressure switch is faulty. If it is the Karcher type then again you are stuffed but if it is similar to the Nilfisk then a replacement is available for around £100 GB Pounds - probably cheaper to buy a new one.

Homelite chain saw MODEL UT109460 will not start up I don't have a manuel and need help to figure out why it won't turn on at all.

Hello again Asher, I'm back. Let's just check a few things:
Gas may be old and stale, this happens when you don't use machine for a long while. Empty old and put in new. Cap should have measurement.
If this is a fuel/oil mixture machine, did you use straight gas? Not good if you did. This could damage your engine.
Do you have spark? If not did you move OFF to ON switch?
Did you put on choke and pull cord till engine almost starts?
If it does this did you then put choke to 1/2 choke?
If you get to this point and engine does start, let it warm shortly and put choke to open.
If still no start it is possible that you have a carburator problem, and need a rebuild. Please let me know how you made out, GOOD LUCK.

The 330 homelite chain saw bar is not getting oil.

If the pump is a piston type, there must be valves on both sides of the pump to control the flow of oil in one direction. The one in the tank is called is called a 'duck-bill' valve and may be mal-functioning. Can you move the diaphragm by hand to see if it pumps anything? Did you run the engine without the bar and chain attached to make sure the bar oil-ports were not choked up. Oil should ooze out of the engine side port when running. Hope some of this helps!

Have no 2cycle oil, can you use something other than that for a homelite chainsaw?

I would not use any other type of oil in the saw. 2 cycle oil is blended to desolve in gas and still protect your saws engine. You can get it every where for alot less than a new saw. Good Luck
