Default Homelite 23A Fuel Filter

Yesterdays task was to clean the fuel tank which had a cup of rust in it and required removing it from the unit to clean it. I discovered this brass casting on the bottom and initially did not know what it was.

See picture.

It had a cap on the end which I removed and found the cavity packed with rust and unearth the remains of a spring. Next a disk came out. Behind the disk was some kind of material which I dug out with a screw driver. I concluded it was filter material because the cavity opened to the bottom of the fuel tank. At the end of the cavity was a wall with three holes in the center. These holes lined up with the center of the filter material and led to the fuel pick up reservoir.

I took the filter element out of a new inline filter and found a suitable new spring for replacements.

Does anybody have any tech data for the Homelite 23A?

As stated in response to your earlier post, get a copy of "Small Engine Service Manual". It's about the only source of information on these engines. My copy is 9th edition I think and dated 1969. Bought it new back then. It's paid for itself time and time again. Now to find a copy you need to go to a good used book store or everyone's most hated online auction site, whose name I shall not utter.
