I would say it should be numbered on the underside of the stuffer .

Well you have to remember these weren't used as firewood saws .Once you get them in the cut that weight actually helps you . Hook the dogs and give it the gas, the saw does does the rest .

I pulled the carb. It was full of snot. Cleaned it. Reinstalled it. It runs and idles. I cant seem to get the carb adjusted though.

Can you get me close with the H and L screws Al? One minute it runs rich and another minute its lean. I was told it ran, the last it was used. When i got it, the L screw was out 1 1/2 turns and the H was out 1/4 turn.
