McCulloch pro/mac 10-10 chainsaw owners manual & gas to oil ratio?

I'm looking for two things. First, does anyone know where I can download a pdf verson of the owners manual for this chainsaw? I bought it new back in 1976 and it still operates great. I've misplaced the owners manual however. Second, what is the oil/gas ratio for this saw?
thanks, denniswick@hotmail.com

I have an old McCULLOCH MAC 10-10 chainsaw that takes 40-1 gas. Take the metal air filter cover off, and look on the inside of it, it should tell you all the info you need like starting it, what kind of gas etc,etc

I was researching for a manual for a different McCulloch chainsaw and I found this link to an owner's manual. I am not sure if it will work for you or not.

The quality of the fuel lubrication is the greatest dilemma with respect to compression (the octane number) and combustion emissions to make, together with the carburetor setting together the mixing ratio and by a lot of changes over time with the use of the latest technology concerning the alkylate fuel nowadays on high compression technology (thinking of the new machines with the decompressor by hand to push to start).
When older machines are used to alkylate fuel like Stihl motomix otherwise aspen T2, then the oil-ratio of the machine looks incorrect, but can be used basically fine without damage as long as the L-H adjustment is correctly adjusted, the H adjustment ( full throttle) must be adjusted significantly richer so that the engine speed decreases by H brisk outwards until it is sound 4-strokes and L adjustment so that the throttle speak properly so well reacts on the throttle.

Some were 32:1, some 40:1, I've even seen 16:1! 50:1 with premium fresh gas is the new standard. Mix a gallon or two at a time only so it doesn't go stale in a month, pour the unused in your car, and you'll be just fine.

I have a 18" mcculloch mac 5 evolution Chainsaw


You should run the saw on a 50-1 fuel oil mix, with an oil from a known chainsaw manufacturer and recommended for 50-1, this machine was an Italian built product sold under many different model names, Titanium 460,Partner 538, California, i am sure if you surf the net you will find one. If you cant find one post me your e mail address and i will send you one.

Not really a problem - my Pro Mac 10-10 works fine. Need gas/oil ratio AND suggestion on which OIL to use. Thanks


Macs run fine with 40:1 ratio. Be sure to use fresh fuel and a modern synthetic saw oil. Mix it in it's own can and be sure to shake thoroughly just before adding to the tank which prevents oil starvation. Don't make more than a gallon at a time unless your business is sawing. Hope this helps!

I need the gas/oil ratio for an old Pro-mac 10-10S


40:1 according to Mike Acres site, same as current recommended mix:

1 gallon of premium fuel to 2.6 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil.
4 liters of premium fuel to 80 milliliters of quality 2-cycle oil.
McCulloch & Poulan; recommend 40:1.
1 gallon of premium fuel to 3.2 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil.
4 liters of premium fuel to 100 milliliters of quality 2-cycle oil.
Chinese chainsaws recommend 25:1.

McCulloch Manuals
Operators Manuals: are much more difficult. I have dialed this number many times (Contact Us - All McCulloch Products 1 (800) 521-8559) and have yet to get a satisfactory response. Please try this! If enough of us try they will fix it! If unsuccessful with McCulloch try here:
Beg for manuals thread (ArboristSite - free to join). Please use the search function first, it has probably been asked and answered.
