I have several assorted saws used to keep my bow saw running (which it isn't right now!!!). I just pulled the spark plug cover off one and immediately noticed a difference. The fins on the cylinder usually have a flat look to them, and the spark plug can easily be removed with an adjustable wrench. This one has fins that stand up instead of flat and a socket was required to remove it. Anyone have any idea of why this one saw is different from the rest of my ole beasts? David from jax
Well....there's a lot of different 'WIZ' saws. The Wiz A, Wiz B and just plain ol' Wiz all use the same cylinder, PN 55491. The Super Wiz uses something different, as does the Wiz 55, Wiz 66 and the Super versions of those saws. So if your spares are all Wiz's, Wiz A- or Wiz B-, you should have the same cylinders. If they're anything else......they won't be the same and you need to go scrounging. I don't see any other saws that use that cylinder in my spreadsheet other than the Wiz, Wiz A- and Wiz B-, but it's not 100% complete yet.....it's a work in progress.

First, thank you Bob! I am home limited time, so often don't get to look into my projects. I took pictures of each cylinder, but didn't match rhem up to their model numbers. I will as soon as i get time, though i am having issues with posting pictures. Thanks, David from jax
Your welcome! Posting pics on here is a bit of a hassle, as it's an ancient format and very limited in file size. I had to dumb my camera down to it's lowest resolution, take a pic from a distance, and then crop it down to a much smaller pic to get the file size down enough. For pics on here that don't get enlarged much it's fine. I can still only load two, maybe three pics per post, so just load what you can in each post and post as often as you need to. There should be a part number cast into each cylinder, which may or may not be the part number for the actual finished cylinder. Homelite was a little weird about that stuff. But it is a way to identify the casting.
