Seen a couple pictures of those rail grinders.  I think they were on the CSCF site.

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

I'd about thing a super 2 would make a lousey rail grinder ,they are only about 2 cubic inchs .Now they did make some XL-12 variations such as a portable circular saw .

Now this is not saying they might not have used the engine out of either one for a number of things just like they did McCulloch engines for bomb hoists for the navy and a number of specialty items .
