    Does this mean I need to take the cover off the chain saw to get to sproket?

I have a BLAUPUNKT CC 866 it will not move the tape along as if it is not catching on the sprocket. Motor is making a noise trying to work. Would take it to repair but can't find a repair man.

I think you should perform a simple yet moving ceremony, thank your old friend for many years of valiant service, retire him and purchase a replacement. Camcorder technology has moved on since he came onto the planet to observe and record your memories.

Fuel oil mix,16 or 32

32:1 should be it. It is better to try this and if it runs VERY smokey and fouls the plug it may be 40:1.

Went to start my XL500 homelite chainsaw and the rope won't pull out.It worked fine when I ran it dry for storage, now it seems like th sprocket won't turn. looks like chain oil is comming out

If it is bar oil then the gasket is leaking between the oil tank and the crankcase, this would mean a full strip down and replace the gasket.

Would a 20 year old homelite vacume hose collaps

If you are speaking of the carburetor connector or carburetor boot that is just below the carb. It does not collapse it becomes rotten and full of holes. This is a very common problem of the 350 and 360 saws. The PN for some if not all is 12048C. You can just google the PN and a lot of suppliers will come up with many showing photo.
