My very first chain saw when I started to cut wood was a Homelite Super EZ Auto. This was back in the earrly 70s. I've been looking for a replacement for this saw, because they don't make em like that any more. I'm new at this and need some help. Is there a way of telling if the saw has solid state or point ignition without pulling the cover off and looking inside? What is the difference between UT10505, 10505B, and 10537? Is there a chart available whereby you can look up the build year if you have the serial number?

Hi, and yes, that little EZ family of saws are just great. You said you had one in the early '70s and I was just wondering if it was an EZ Automatic instead of a Super EZ Automatic. The Super didn't arrive until the middle '70s. Not much different other than the the Super is 2.5 cu in where the EZ Auto was 2.3 cu in. We have a service memo in the Museum, see the main page, that covers year of manufacture that will at least tell you the year it was made. I don't know what to tell you about ID'ing those with solid state ignition, but I do know that most, if not all, have a blue "coil" where the point ignition had black coils. Have fun finding one. They are on ebay all the time.
