Watch out Kev.  It has a reed valve.:D

Replace the fuel line as well as the oil line(s).  The gas tank has a vent line that sticks a short way into the tank through a hole near the filler neck.  There should be a Homelite 69451 duckbill valve (now produced/sold by Stens and Oregon) on the end of that line inside the tank.

Some of them have a diaphragm oil pump in addition to a pressurized oil tank.  Others just have the pressurized oil tank.  The impulse line from the crankcase extends a short way into the oil tank.  It's supposed to have a porous bronze 'connector' stuck in the end of it, with another Homelite 69451 duckbill valve on the end of that.  By adjusting how much of that connector is exposed (meaning not covered by the duckbill or the line), you can control the amount of pressure that bleeds back out of the oil tank.  This controls the oil flow.  The Homelite SM sez to have between 1/16" and 1/8" of connector exposed.  If you want a LOT of oil flow, you can just use a solid walled tube instead of the connector.  That connector and what's left of the old duckbill may be sitting in the bottom of the oil tank...
