If it has a hard nose bar you can get a 3/8" low profile clutch drum for it .The oiler is under the flywheel and it probably is the diaphragm or it just needs cleaned out .

Fuel/oil ratio when new was 32 to 1.You could probably use 40 to 1 I suppose although I run everything I own on the former .

In good running order they are great little saws .It might be the starting problem is a deteriorated fuel line which I might add is a pain in the bottom to change because it snakes up through the handle .

This model is the very first chainsaw I ever owned and it still runs very well .It was like 1975 and I've dressed the 14" hard nose bar on a belt sander at least 4 times and can't remember how many loops of chain I used but it was a bunch .It originally came with 1/4" chain later changed .In 42 years all I've done was rebuilt the carb once and new fuel line plus cleaned out the oil pump but only after sitting idle for about 6 years .It runs as good or better than when it was when new ..So in answer to the question it is worth spending some time on in my opinion .
