Xl duckbill
« on: May 26, 2017, 04:39:05 pm »
Can someone out there please send a picture or diagram showing exactly where the duckbill for the oiler and also the gas is ligated? I currently have 7 of these saws with various oiler and gas problems. Thanks!

I could see nothing coming out of the oil filler hole on my SXL 12, is there supposed to be something you can see from the filler hole? Or, do I have to strip it down?

Just what you see in the pic.

Here's a good video on how to rake the saw apart to get at the tanks and pump. He is pulling it apart for a carb kit but the strip down and assembly is the same.

Here is a vid of the oil line repair. It's for a Super 2 but basically the same as your XL

Also attached is a link to a Homelite manual.  Look at age B-40

The XL is a little top handle. There are some Super XL's with the XL logo.

There are no duck bills in the oiler system on the larger ones. The only duck bills on them are in the fill caps.

A picture of one of your saws would help.

Not sure about the XL-12's but the oiler systems on the SXLAO's are generally pretty good.
A few issues I've come cross that makes them fail.

Oiler pick up hose in the oil tank rotted off or crac ked.

Oil lines, pick up screen, check valve  (manual oiler) plugged with crap. Remove and blow out  the tubes (XL-12) and on the Super XL, the passages behind the pump.

While you have the pump off, take it apart and give it a good cleaning.

On the Super XL change the "O" rings on the tube if they are worn or missing.
Check the two little "O" rings on the back of the pump for condition and presence

I think the most common I've come across are air leaks in the system. The XL 12 compression fittings are either loose or someone has cranked the fittings down hard and crushed the sealing rings.

Hope that helps

Thanks Tim, not sure I can still get the O rings but it's something worth checking out!
