I bought 6 of them oem full wrap kits for 395 from baileys 2-3 yrs ago. At the time i thought it had to be a misprint in the pricing. Something like $29 for a full wrap, spikes, oil tank guard, and bar plates. My initial purchase of 1 came through so i reordered 5 more. I don't really love a wrap handle but for the price i couldnt pass it up

Spike60 bob told me about the 572 wrap kits
I needed a couple of clutch covers
He said they were near 70.00 after tax
But these were 29.00 plus shipping
For all this stuff
I'll probably never have a 565/572
So I'll try to fit these on a couple
Homelite xl12 supers.

I don't have any small saws but my friend brought me a super xl that he
Got from a feed store it
Hung from the ceiling in the 70s for advertising I guess.
It had never been started
Until I fixed it with a fuel line
Very nice saw he used it some but he's
Babyfied that it's too loud
He wants to sell it
I might get it.

On my 281/288 the throttle pin has walked out, not much holding it but friction,, i got not enough friction.
Any fixes?? Suggestions??

Bob are you talking about the pin in the throttle arm on the end of the throttle shaft.............the one that the plastic trigger arm pushes down? If so, those are staked/swaged in place. Best practice would be to remove the throttle shaft from the carb body, then put it in a vice with the backside of the throttle arm supported and re-stake it to tighten up the grip on the throttle pin/stud.

Pics of you with your backside supported to tighten up your grip?
