I am trying to find a model number for a saw that has a serial number of 12370174. Thanks for any help.

Do you have anything more to go on?
Brand, model, color, age or picture etc...
Post your saws in the models library. More saws makes better library!
If you need help to post please ask, I will happily help.

That, I'm afraid, is probably not possible, there's seldom any reliable correlation between serial number and model. If you can provide some pics of the saw it is highly probable that it will be recognized by someone.
If you get them, no matter how and why, guard them well!

It's an old homelite saw that I recently lost the fuel cap for. I was trying to find a replacement cap.

One of the XL saws... maybe XL-12?
That 8-digit serial number can be deciphered.
Made in a year which ended in "1" (1981?), on the 237th day of the year, and the 174th unit made that day.

Several Homelite fuel caps will fit on these.
The original hexagonal cap is quite common and can be found easily.
The earlier ones had a round fuel cap with little knobs around the perimeter. Those are a little harder to find.
There's one XL-12 in the Models Library with a fuel cap off a 1950's era Homelite saw.
It has a raised rib in the top of the cap. Those, too, are quite common and can be found easily, although they are not specifically correct for this model of saw.

Good luck with her.

Agree, looks very much like an XL-12.
