I know..............fiber puller. Only Homelite pic I have access to at the moment. Damn photofucket. That little Super E-Z AOW is one of my favorite Homelites. Actually, it's one of my favorite saws period.

They are extremely handy. I've dropped 30-40 or so little 4"-18" diameter trees with it clearing a firebrake around a huge redwood water tank in a former state park in NorCal during a work party GTG there years ago. Homelite sold a 'western kit' for this series with the handlebar+hardware, bigger dawgs, and a different muffler. Arrohead Ed found one years ago and put it on an NOS (IIRC) Super E-Z. Was a ting of beauty.

Found my S E-Z AOW on the "museum shelf" of a decades old saw shop in NorCal about 10 years ago. Just needed a replacement ign module and a bar. Was a late model with the plastic finned fw cover. Replaced that with an earlier r/w 'shaver' style cover fer looks.

F'ng Dave (Ckelp) has TWO S E-Z AOW's that he's found in the same area. Bastard. RandyMac has a nice origional W that he got from a friend (Bob A) in cenrral Oregon. Love these little saws.

They were my first saw
Traded a back window for a 76 Chev pickup to the town for a pile of them they had used for a firebreak clearing job.
Got a pile of saws and parts,used to take 3 with me to cut a load of firewood.I always finished with the one that had a scored piston.Never knew about the blue coils then.I was 20 at the time,i just made sure there were at least three that would run before i left. Now i know it was crappy coils messing with me.
Cleaning up my shop i came across the pile,still had gas in them after 30+ years that still smelled like gas.I'll bet the scored one will still run...
