That's a Frontier/Quadra/EMAB built saw.  Sold under the Skil, Husqvarna, and many other brand names.  There were many variants of them.  Some with AV.  Some with manual oilers.  Some with a weird ventilated clutch cover/exhaust duct setup (with a 'fan' setup on the clutch like what you'd see on a flywheel).  I don't like any of them.  Have had about 10 pass through my shop and have not kept any of 'em.  Gimme a Poulan Micro series saw over them any day of the week (and twice on Sunday)...

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.
