Bicycle chain lube works well in these situations. It's usually a teflon based lubricant, light weight, with good penetration, and little tendency to gum up in the long run.
In a pinch, WD40 will work as well...though it will tend to gather more dirt and dust. If you have rust issues, WD40 will drive the moisture out...
Make sure the moving parts attached to the end of the cable are freely moving as well. Frequently they are the cause of the friction, rather that the cable itself...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

What is the gas to oil ratio for weed eaters?


Most gas weed eaters use 2-cycle engines. For the Homelite 2-cycle engine trimmers, use a 50:1 ratio of gasoline to the Homelite lubricant. (For 1 gallon of gas, add 2.6 oz of the oil.)

Many Homelite tool manuals are available here: http://www.homelite.com/service_support/product_owners_manuals . Scroll down to find your string trimmer.

I hope this helps.

Wht is the gas to oil ratio for a homelite vac


Yours is not a current model and I did not find a manual. The following is an excerpt from a 26cc MightyLite Blower/Vac UT08550/UT08951 "Operator's Manual":
This product is powered by a 2-cycle engine and requires pre-mixing gasoline and 2-cycle lubricant. Pre-mix unleaded gasoline and 2-cycle engine lubricant in a clean 1 gallon container approved for gasoline.
Recommended fuel: This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline intended for automotive use.
Mix Homelite Premium Exact Mix lubricant with gasoline according to the instructions on the package. If Premium Exact Mix lubricant is not available, use a high quality synthetic 2-cycle engine lubricant, mixed at 2.6 oz. per gallon (US).
Do not use automotive lubricant or 2-cycle outboard lubricant.
NOTE: Premium Exact Mix fuel mix will stay fresh up to 30 days. DO NOT mix quantities larger than usable in a 30 day period.
PREMIUM EXACT MIX (50:1)
GasolineLubricant
1 gallon (US) 2.6 oz.
1 Liter 20 cc (20 ml)

1 quart fuel:3/4 ounces of oil = 1 Gallon fuel:3 ounces of oil or slightly less than 43:1. Not what a current manual recommends.

If properly adjusted your blower will operate fine on 50:1 regardless of what the manual reads. HTH

Need to know what grade chain oil to purchase....


Hi, W/D here.

Homelite recommends 30 wt oil. I prefer and use bar oil, and it adheres to the bar better, providing better lubrication.

What do i lubricate the flexible cable, inside the shaft of the line trimmer, with ?


I use a black molybdenum disulfide grease to lubricate the flex shafts. I remove the shaft, wipe off all of the old grease, apply a new coat of grease, and reverse the direction of the shaft when re-installing (top becomes bottom, bottom becomes top) to more evenly distribute the wear on the flex shaft.

I nww=eed to know the fuel mixture for my homelite gas blower


If you ran plain gas in a 2-cycle engine and it seized... you need to buy a new one. 2-cycle engines depend on oil in the gas for lubrication. If you run straight gas, there is no lubrication, the engines overheats and seizes. The end, unfortunately.
