well i got it started for a little bit, seams kinda cold natured but it hasnt ran in a long long time. im sure my neighbors love hearing a chainsawin my shop at midnight lol, ill mess with it more tomarrow. thanks.
i dont know how old it is but some stuff i found online suggest its from 1972-78 maybe. it was kinda cool the hear it run for the short time it did. my grandpa was probably the last one to run it and he has been gone since 97.

Old saws require more oil?...really?...explain what's different about them that they need more oil please?
What's really changed over the years is the oil guys....the older saws used 20:1 because the oil wasn't that good...as oil quality increased over the years the recommended mixture became lighter on oil. 50:1 with a name-brand quality oil would be more than sufficient in that old dinosaur... The carb will need to be adjusted if you change your oil mixture too as was stated in a previous post....
