Good stuff Jim.  At the park where I volunteer at, we have an ex Air Force 1971 Loadstar 1700 with a 45' Hi-Ranger insulated bucket boom.  Has a 2V 345 and a direct-5th T35 5-speed.  Unfortunately it has a single speed rear.

The widow of a friend has his stakeside flat bed dump Loadstar (year unknown, but it's somewhere between 1967 and 1973).  Has a 345, 5-speed (think it's a direct 5th), and a 2-speed rear end.  I hope to buy it from her some time soon.

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.
