Gas /oil mixture on a pioneer 1074 chain saw made in 1978
NOBODY will stick their neck out on this one. The original manual probably said 32:1, however the way I think about it is (most) two cycle engines haven't changed in 50 years. Only the oil has. I will leave it up to you to figure out. GOOD LUCK

Suggest you drain the fresh gas/oil and add a fresh batch but first add a gas stabilizer to your batch of gas/oil in the storage container. You will probably still need to use starting fluid for a few times When 2 cycle engines sit for a long period of time, the gas/oil mixture undergoes a change and tends to leave a residue on the delicate parts of the carb. The gas stabilizer will help that.
I always do the following for 2 cycle engines when I put them up for the winter. Empty the gas container on the device and then start it to use up any gas left in the fuel lines and carb. this keeps any residue from forming.
Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS please leave a rating if appropriate. Thanks

I believe the reservoir you are talking about is for the bar chain oil. You can get it most anywhere. As for mixing the gas and oil mixture, you will need 2 cycle oil. It is available most everywhere also. Most modern chain saws use a 50:1 mixing ratio which means 2 1/2 ounces of oil to 1 gallon of gas. Hope this helps.
