Chainbrakes weren't fitted to Poulan saws sold in the US until the 1990's somewhere.  They were fitted to saws sold in other markets (Canada, Australia, etc) long before that.  Chainbrake refit 'kits' were also sold by Poulan through dealers.  Seen those for XXV series, 3400-4000 series, and 4200-8500 series saws.

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.
