Question about Homelite Garden
I take it you have a gas powered saw. Before starting any work on the machine, remove the plug lead.
To service it, remove the blade and guide and clean them all thoroughly. Clean the drive sprocket and its recess, this is best done with compressed air or at least a stiff paint brush. Inspect the chain cutting blades for damage and also the guide links and the groove they run in. Lubricate everything lightly with a thin oil before reassembly.
Check the spark plug, clean it thoroughly (not on a rotary wire brush) or replace it. Clean the air filter by blowing it with compressed air or a vacuum cleaner. If it is too soiled, replace it. Drain the fuel from the tank and check the fuel filter in the fuel tank and clean it if it appears to be dirty or contaminated. Blow the cylinder and the head cooling fins clean with compressed air, this can be done with a brush, but will require the cooling duct to be removed.
That is about all that can be done on a cursory service, anything further will require stripping the carb and removing the exhaust, neither really necessary unless a problem is being experienced. Everything is relatively simple to carry out and should not take too long. Please rate this response.
