It arrived yesterday late in the mail. Nice old saw. I'll get some pics up soon. It has .404 on it now and the tygon lines are going south so new black rubber lines before run time. Says 16:1 mix on the tag but I'm thinking 20:1 with H1R. Acres says max rpm 6500.

What are your thoughts on mix?

32/1 or even 40/1 would be fine with todays oil. Remember the 16/1 and 25/1 numbers from those old saws is when mixed with 30w engine oil.

Cool, I'm going to go 32:1 with H1R, that is my standard mix so no getting another can just for this saw.

Agree on the 32:1.  32:1  is what I run in my Poulan 16:1 for ex 4200.

I run 32-1 in everything I have.   Poulan 5200, 4200, 306A, 505, 445, 475, 4000, 3700.
The 306A, 3700, and 4000 are the roller bearings not ball type bearings.   I am cranking the 3700 at 13000 rpm. 
PP 505, 475, 445.
