I am in need of a piston and rings for the above saw. This is an old saw that locked up and the piston has some pretty good scratches on it. If I can not get the piston, I am willing to try just replacing the rings. Does anyone have either of these items for a reasonable price or know where I can get them?

woo, that must be an old booger, can't even find it on Homelite's parts lookups. IF you are able to find the part numbers somewhere, I'd say be prepared to pay somewhere around $150 for those parts likely based on their age.

Or, I guess that is a SXLAO UT-10045-A ?

The piston and pin original part number is A68438 , which has been superceded to UP-07099 and shows a list price of $59.83 . It is likely though if it is locked up, you could have scoring and damaged cylinder too. Cylinder original part number is A69714, superceded to UP-06593 and list is $142.41.

Rings part number is 594361A has been supercede by UP-06805 and list is $5.73.

No telling where you will find these parts in stock though..

Thanks for the info

Thanks for the info on the Homelite saw SXLAO UT No. 10045A. I am hoping to find the parts. I am not ready to retire This saw yet. It cuts great. The cylinder looks to be in good shape. So I may be able to get by with a piston and rings.

If you go through all the steps at www.homelite.com , you should eventually get to a point where you can find those parts, add them to a cart, buy them and have them shipped.


Or, "For those customers that prefer ordering by phone, simply contact the Homelite master parts distributor at toll free 1-877-544-9250, and place your order over the phone."

You should be able to use some of the numbers I gave you.. They may be higher priced though then what I stated. Looks like I may have been looking at an OLD price list.

I got tired of not fixin my own old Super XL. I needed same Homelite A68438 or UP-07099 or whatever the number is nowadays. So I took matters into my own hands and found a source and had piston & ring sets manufactured. I have just received my stock but do not have them listed for sale yet. Let me know if you still have a need in the meantime and I can get a set out to you. I am selling these piston and ring sets for $30.00 plus shipping. I can also supply the two rings as a set for $10.00.

As I just mentioned in another post, XL / SXL critical components, at least from Homelite, have largely become NLA. There may be aftermarket avail. such as Stens or others...they were nice running saws with good power but a little on the loud side. ALMOST as bad as the old SuperWiz'.

Treeman60 - sorry to barge in.

Can you tell us where you were able to get pistons/rings made? I need a piston for a fifty year old Homelite and no one has it (or no one seems to have it).

thank you,

-Doug

Hello Lawnmowertech,

I recognize your handle from the H.O.H.

It's the same 775 Homie from that site. I remain convinced that the piston from several models will fit, and I'll try to confirm that in a week or so (when I get the IPL).

thanks,

-Doug
