Question about Homelite Garden
After it has been used for a while and it won't restart, try loosing the cap to the gas tank and see if there is pressure escaping. The homelites are notorious for the vent screen in the gas tank cap getting dirty and pressuring up which forces more fuel into the carburetor and floods the motor. This is also aided by spilled mixed gas which has oil in it running down onto the cylinder heads and then the sawdust sticks to it over time and building up where it makes it difficult for the cylinder head to get rid of all the heat it makes from running. This in turn makes the gas tank hotter and makes it build up pressure in the tank. If the vent cap cant get rid of it as fast as it is created the increased pressure forces too much gasoline into the carburetor and it floods it out.
