Scored today
« on: February 16, 2016, 10:54:58 pm »
My local dealer was cleaning house and invited me to look over a pile of Homelite parts that were headed to the scrap yard. I got there shortly before the truck and picked up two complete XL-76s and a Super XL-922, all look good externally. They will have to wait until I get a few other projects out of the way. I am excited about the Big Dog, can't wait to hear it bark. ;D

I had a look at the SXL-922 today. Pulled the muffler, piston looks new. Good spark so shot  spritz of gas at 'er and and she took off like a scared cat. Had to tweak the idle a tich to keep it running. Man, that thing is LOUD The only problem I see was somebody hogged out the rewind mount screws to 1/4 NC. Were they 10-32 like the XL-76? Now I need to find a decent bar, I don't have enough use to justify a new one.

Very Nice.    Good that someone found those saws before they went to the scrap heap.   
Sounds like your going to enjoy running the 922.

 Likely #12-24.  The XL-76 & 101 types are actually an exception with #10.

Yep.  12-24 was OEM on the 922.  Great scores there.  Both models are great runners.  Before you run 'em too much I suggest you freshen up the fuel systems (carb kit, fuel lines, fuel filter) and replace the crank seals.  Those rubber parts have a finite life.  They will often work fine at first after being ran after a long sit............ but then fail.

National/Timken 253747 or CR/SKF 6119 for both sides of the 922.

That same seal is what you'll need for the FW side of the 76's.  You will need Homelite 58308 (or 58308a or 58308b)for the PTO side of the 76's.  They are easy to find on eBay for now.  We are still working on a suitable industry/generic seal match for that one.  Tim (fossil) has found a rubber coated match for it and has ran it with success.  Can't recall the # offhand.

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.

6120 does work fine.  6119 does too.  It's just the double lip version.  Most original seals on saws were single lip until the late 1970's.   Most current saw seals are double lip.  Probably doesn't matter one iota.

 6120 is single lip.  National/Timken 253747 is double lip IIRC.  Poulan 530019097 (Poulan 3400-4000 seals) works too.  Used all of these seals in various saws with success.
