Here's some basics.. a typical gas oil mix is 40:1 to 50:1... in that range you'll be fine. Also clean the air filter, check the fuel filter and clean and/or replace the spark plug. If the gas has been in it for a while... clean it out...It may run fine for a bit,but it will most likely be harder to start, and eventually gum up the carb and lines and foul the spark plug.
so if you got those things cleaned and serviced.. you should be pretty good to go..

Starting helps:
1. close the choke and prime with the prime bulb if it's got one, then pull it thru a couple of times until you hear it try to unsuccessfully start.
2. Set the choke 1/2 way and pull it again, it should start and once it builds up a bit of pressure in the gas tank, you can set the choke to off and you're up and runnin'.

I couldn't find any model info for you, but a local saw/lawnmower shop should be able to dial in parts for you.

I have a Montgomery ward powr kraft tmy 74001a chain saw that I cannot find any information on. cannot even locate a picture of one.

Department store saws are usually built by another company that make saws of their own brand. They build a saw to sell for a lower price the department store wants. Find a shop that services chain saws and take your saw there.

Lawn Mower wont start

You need to obtain a manual for Briggs & Stratten engines. All the info you need will be in it. The most common cause for non starting in these engines is "Tight Tappets" Wether it's an OHV or the old "L" head engine, because they rev and work so hard, the valves seat themselves deeper into their seat which reduces the valve clearance. There is no adjustment on the older "L" engines, so you have to remove metal from either the valve stem, ot the lifter itself. I have in the past done this in situ with a point file, but it is a tedious job. Otherwise you must remove the head and take out the valves and grind the stems. A tricky task and probably should be done by a mechanic.

I have a Montgomery Ward Snow Thrower Model 495A. A rope got caught in the auger. Now the motor runs but the auger will not turn. Any idea what was broken and where I can get parts to fix it?

I have an older Montgomery Ward Snow Thrower model No. TM0-35286A and I'm having a hard time finding parts for it. The tiller just stopped working so I'm thinking the worm-gear is shot, but I can't even find the part on-line...Can you help?

2.0 Cubic Inch Montgomery Ward gas chain saw, 10 inch cutting bar

Fuel/Oil Mixture
  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL supplier's recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 8oz/2gal - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (Stihl 2.6oz/1gal)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few months. Anything over 3 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH
