Yes Calvin I was talking to you about those Homelite chainbrake clutch cover assemblies.  See if you can find these for me:

-Complete Homelite E-Z/Super E-Z/XL-1/etc chainbrake clutch covers

-Complete SXL/XL12/etc chainbrake clutch cover

-Complete SL-925/etc chainbrake clutch covers

-Complete Poulan 3400-4000/PP375-395 series chainbrake clutch covers

I'll check out your website for the other stuff.
i  have  a  poulan  10825  cover  if  that  is  one  u  are  looking  for  ?

I can't find that part number anywhere.  Can you post a couple pics of it?

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.

I don't have an IPL for the numbers but here's some pics of the brake components. There is nothing in the cover.

They are built like a tank.
A lot of the early brakes are really strange.

This guy has allot of Homelite parts and IPL's  hope it will help.  http://www.leonschainsawpartsandrepair.com/store/c1/Featured_Products.html
Technical service bulletin 185-001 to 185-020 1985 Has the serial number conversion on page 11 I have been working on three Homelites Super easy ,XL12 and a Super XL 925. They just need to be cleaned up and I am selling them. I'm not a collector but you wouldn't no it with all of the Vintage saws I have to finish and sell. (Ones man junk is another mans treasure) Leon is a good guy if you can't figure out the serial number or find parts send him an e-mail he will get back to you. There is also a forum called http://houseofhomelite.proboards.com/
That is the web address allot of helpful people their as well.
