Would bet it is 32:1 but many people now days are using a 50:1 mixture using a synthetic 2 cycle engine oil with 89 octane fuel even for 16:1 ratio. Claiming no carbon buildup and more power.????

Remove plug before trying to start pull a few times with plug out you may have quite a bit of fuel exhaust from spark hole then reinstall plug and try starting. Sometimes fuel runs into head above the piston (especially in hot weather) causing the piston trying to combust a liquid. If you leave fuel cap loose in hot weather it will help prevent this.

Possibly bad switch remove one of the wires to switch and try. If still no fire probably bad coil.

Please list your model number when posting and I might have found part number for you.

Go to homelite.com service and support, find parts, parts locator, model # if you cannot find model number go to product line, homelite, then select generator, without model number you will have dozens of generators to look at.

Check fuel lines in tank make sure they are not broken or have hole in it. You will probably have to rebuild the carb. As you know you have fire and it will run with proper fuel.

I bought up a lot of Homelite parts when dealer went out of business about 20 years ago and have had interest in them since. I have worked on a few super xl's but cannot tell you for sure the fuel mixture but believe it probably changes over the years from 16-1 to 20-1 saw on internet one person claimed that that ut number used 32-1. Don't believe it would make any difference as long as you used good grade 2 cycle oil and it would not smoke near as bad as 16-1. One person on internet claimed that he still had the saw his Dad bought new in 1967 or 68 so they have been around that long but at that time I do not believe they had a UT number on them.
The cc is 57.4 and weighs 13.14 lbs. With 24" bar.

50:1--( 50 parts fuel to 1 part oil)
Now you can buy a special oil from Stihl service agents that has a 50:1 formulation that will cover all mix ratios regardless of the engine make or ratio requirement
saves having different tins for different ratios for different engines

Try adjusting the H needle valve 1/8 turn in see if better then if not go 1/8 turn other way.

Homelite Garden | Answered on Oct 09, 2017


Set both the H and L for 1 1/2 turn out from bottom, start and adj. The H for max rpm for full throttle, now set the low for good idle and very little or no hesitation when opening throttle. Now set H for max rpm again and then back off until you get more of rumble at full throttle.
