First of all, welcome aboard. Nice to see another Homelite guy. That saw, probably the company's most popular model, was built in the mid to late 80's judging by the chain brake style sprocket cover. The company has changed hands twice since then, the current products are made in China and not worth space on the shelf

Canadian model made by Terry (T in the sn), missing chain brake handle (maybe entire brake).  The brake is rare here in the states, I don't think they were ever sold that way here.   Lots of parts available from many sources if you want to fix it up, right down to the decals.  Nice.

Homelite Textron  And Jacobsen who made that unit  sold out to John Deere  back in the 90s  and John Deere sold out to TTI  and its  been TTI since  that is why the manufacture has no clue to what you have  i use to warranty work for TTI but i quit  after 3 months of it . 

But  i have  over 1600  part numbers for Homelite  and the XL12  is part of that lineup of  parts  and i ship worldwide

Do you have the complete chainbrake clutch cover for these saws ?  How about the same for the SX925 or the Super E-Z?  I could use a couple of each of those....
-Aaron

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.
