Thank you Roger.

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.

I like XXV series Poulans.  These are just a few of mine (along with my Craftsman 5.2 branded Poulan 5200).....




Very nice little collection of real Poulans.

Already found the necessary carb kit. What size fuel line do these saws use?

Thank you :) I wonder if the metallic blue ones were limited editions because you don't see many of them.

Not limited editions.  Just was the color they used for a relatively short time frame in the 1970's before switching to red.

I guess that makes mine "RARE". Still not sure if it has an automatic oiler or not.

LOL.  I've seen plenty of blue ones.  There's almost always at least one on ebay.

  http://www.ebay.com/itm/CRAFTSMAN-2-3-CHAINSAW-VINTAGE-no-spark-/221638311505?pt=US_Chainsaws&hash=item339aac3e51

Pull your flywheel cover.  Look at the bottom of the case behind the edge of the flywheel.  You'll see the oil pump.  If it's auto and manual there will be a section on the left side of the pump with a cover held down by a couple screws.  That section has the auto oiler diaphragm.  If it does not have that section, then it's manual only.  In this pic the flywheel has been removed.  You should be able to see the oil pump peeking out behind your flywheel.  The flywheel is easy to remove also (and doing so makes replacing the fuel line much easier).

Thanks for the idea. I'll check when I go to remove more saw cake, already removed about a pound of it.

Apparently the color is turquoise but it looks blue to me. I see blue ones pop up 6 or so times a year but they're usually trashed like the one currently on Ebay. I spent 2 years waiting for one in good cosmetic shape to show up.

I was wondering why the blue was used on the first ones I had seen years ago.  I couldnt find anything explaining it. Thanks.
