Exactly what its doing most likely. Unable to get any number from IPL on which carburetor on it has but if it has a "H" mixture screw it needs adjusting. I thinking that it is running too at full throttle.

SOURCE: my 345 chainsaw bogs down when it hits wood

There are two idle screws one high, and one low. Your high adjustment idle screw needs to be adjusted.

SOURCE: Not running at full throttle

close to the carb you will find two tiny screws. They are labeled H and L. L sets the idle speed. H sets the max RPM. Hold the throttle wide open and turn the H screw. When you find the very top end, back it down some or it will be running too lean. That would make it run hot, and provides less lubrication. Could result in engine failure if you run it too lean.

SOURCE: Homelite Timberman chainsaw won't run anymore

Sometimes the transferred metal feels like compression.
The volume of most chainsaws is so small it makes a HUGE difference in the reading; depending on which end of the compression tester the Schrader valve is mounted (should be spark plug end). If the total cylinder volume is only 2 cubic inches and the hose adds an additional cubic inch you can see how it will impact.

I recommend you join here:
ArboristSite Chainsaw thread (free to join)
http://www.arboristsite.com/forumdisplay.php?f=9
There are some threads about using acid to remove metal transfer from cylinder walls. There are some Homelite collectors. There are a bunch of good people that enjoy lending a little expertise. I am not a Homelite guy, I have done some research for Homeys and often you must buy an entire short block.

You may find this helpful too:
Homelite/Ryobi.com (authorized parts supplier)
https://www.gardnerinc.com/recons/disclaimer-lg.php - Agree; Choose “Product Line”; “Select OEM” & “Select Catalog” both to “Homelite Consumer Products”. A drop down list appears; self explanatory from here.
The numbers Homelite & Ryobi use do not match the numbers everyone posts. A careful inspection of your saw should find something that matches.

your question impressed me so much I almost did not answer. It is so though and well thought I though you had been at this for a while and knew exactly what to do next and were pulling my leg. Good on you. You will be welcomed at ArboristSite. Good Luck

SOURCE: My Homelite Ranger 16 inch chainsaw starts great

My 16" Ranger had the same problem. Here's how to fix it. Take off the top cover and the red side cover to acess the carburator. Take the top off the carb; there is a single screw that holds it on. Inside you will see a 10mm round indention. This is a final screen fuel filter. Mine had a layer of light brown dirt over the screen. Take a small screwdriver and carefully scrape the dirt off. You don't need to clean the carb any further or adjust the H and L settings or anything. Put it back together and it should run with no bogging. down.

You may adjust the High adjustment screw on the carbarater most of the time carbarater needs to be rebuilt.

Old gas, will not start. homelite "timberman 45"


Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
Chain Saws:
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside

Fix bar brake on homelite timberman 45


It's a design flaw in timberman chain saws. After some hours of use, they develop a bad habit of not releasing the clutch drum completely. And that takes precious power away from the saw. If it becomes too tight, the clutch drum may over heat and cause the plastic enclosure to warp or melt down. After messing with this brake for months, I ended up completely removing it. Replacing it was not an option for me - there was nothing to replace - it is not the brake band that's bad, but the mechanism in the brake handle of this saw that is flawed. Overall, this chainsaw is very cheaply built - Homelite used waaaay too much plastic in it!
