Most small equipment is 32:1

4 oz oil to a gallon
8 oz to 2 gallons of fuel

Some Chain saws may be 40:1

Cranking: is a term for a car -- that the starter will not
turn the motor over

You have a no start condition

Got Spark & a new plug

SOURCE: Homelite mighty lite 26bv gas Blower won't run full speed or only in Full Choke

Sounds like a lean condition. Rebuild carb, replace fuel lines and fuel filter and you should be ready to blow the leaves.

On a homelite model 26 bv blower Does the gas tank filter connect to anything

The filter fits on the end of the fuel pickup line inside the gas tank. If you see the filter just rolling around in the tank it probably has hardened or damaged fuel lines. Size them up and get replacement lines online or at your local outdoor equipment retailer.

I do not know the oil-to-gas ratio to mix/buy. My husband passed away, and I cannot find the manual. Help, please. THANK YOU

Can you find the model number on the Homelite Mighty Lite BlowerVac?

For the UT08520 and UT08921 26cc blowers and the UT08550 and UT08951 blower vacs, you can mix the Homelite Premium Exact Lubricant with gasoline following the label directions. For other synthetic oil additives, use 2.6 oz of additive per 1 gallon of gasoline. (It's 20ml to 1 l if you use the metric system.) That's a 50:1 ratio (gasoline to additive).

Many Homelite Blower manuals are available here: . You should try to find your exact model and then check the manual to confirm that your model blower vac uses this same ratio of oil to gasoline. You will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the manual.

I hope this helps.

I need a gas tank for homelite mighty lite 26ss. the whole is too big in the gas tank for the gas line.

No, what you really need is the "correct" sized fuel line. Do not alter the hole in any way. Here is an offering for a complete fuel line replacement "kit". I think it is The sizes of line they have should fit your make and model. See the third Item listed under BLOWERS at the top of the page. Click on that and you will see the item you actually need. Reasonable price too.

How much oil do you use? in the mighty lite

Homelite Mighty Lite engines require the gas/oil ratio to be mixed at 50:1. That is 2.6 ounces of oil per gallon or 1.3 ounces of 2 stroke oil per half gallon of gas. I recommend using synthetic oil. It lubricates much better, allows the engine to run cooler and smokes less.

I need to know the correct ratio of fuel mix for homelite blower/vac

It is 50:1. That is 2.6 Ounces 2 stroke oil/ US Gallon or 1.3 ounces of oil / 1/2 US Gallon. I recommend synthetic and adding Stabil brand gas stabilizer to the mix. It helps greatly.

Correct gas to oil ratio for Homelite Mighty String Trimmer Model

most trimmers are 50:1. or 40:1. i would use synthetic 2 cycle oil and use the 50:1 ratio. i know guys with trimmers that require 50:1, and they use synthetic at 80:1 with no problems for years. they say the engine runs cleaner. i am a part-time lawn care operator.
