Title: Homelite 150 Automatic
Post by: woodyweeder on July 29, 2012, 10:24:55 pm
I came across this at the tip shop the other day - $30. Has excellent compression and started easily with fresh fuel. It even has a bit of the original paint left on the bar.
The only thing missing is the outer part of the muffler - this would be easy to engineer if the baffle didn't sit out proud of the rim!
Is the H on the chain for Homelite or Husky perhaps? I have only had Stihl's before this. If it is Homelite, I wouldn't be surprised if it came with the saw when new!

From what I understand the 150 with the rubber grip is the   150e  not as common  Only reason I know this is years ago I posted a pic of mine on cscf and was congratulated on having the model with the rubber grip

Mine did not have the rubber grip.

It had a 16" bar and 3/8' chain, decent power, never any trouble.

But that thing would make your hands sting from here to tomorrow.

Up and running.  Full 3/8 chain on these.  :o

Only  thing the clutch spring must be weak?  Cant get the chain to stop spinning with carb L and I adjusting, even all the way down to stall out. 

Neat little sticker.  :P

Oh what is suppose to be holding the bottom of handle to crankcase or anything there?   I see by IPL there is a bracket and 2 bolts missing possibility.

Didnt test cut yet.   I was looking and guessing 40something cc. So probably like the echo 452's I got in with 3/8.  I was surprised they had full 3/8 back when too.

Looking at pic, chain looks like full skip.

I had one of these for 25 years. They are around 45cc and pull a 16" 3/8 chain just fine.

I have one now down in the barn that someone gave me. I stole the chain from it and use on my Dolmar 115i. I gave the bar to cut4fun I think? I don't want to run it. The vibration is so bad, my hands would ache for a week.

Like Jim said V i B r A t I o N. 

Sorry was trying to type right after running it.  Not a saw for me but seems to going to be traded in.   

Noticed while pulling it over the chain wants to turn too. So must be something stuck.  I can stop the chain and idle with chain on the wood though.  If I idle it down passed where I feel idle rpm should be it shuts off.

150's are evil.  Homelite's answer to the mini-mac.  Only good thing about them is that they share clutch pars and bars/chains with Super E-Z's.8)

They are great for keeping the mozzies away, I have 1 that runs fine smokes like hell but wont cut as soon as you hit the wood she bogs the chain but motor wants to keep revving so I gather clutch is stuffed. Put a pic up of it once and a comment was it was an east coaster with rubber grip not real common????

Well that was easy as to why the clutch was acting weird and I couldnt adjust to get chain to stop.

Your auto oiler diaphragm is shot.  It's sucking bar oil into the engine.  Great for mozzie fogging..............but not for cutting.:D
