    Yes. A pickle fork. I found out they only made 100 of them and closed up shop in 89.

    It does say cuyuna and is 2 cylinder. Doesn’t say size or even oil ratio.

    Typically 40:1 but go a richer mix to start.
    Does it have an oil pump or just running premix? I would probably skip the oil pump and run premix if i were you. Disconnect it and cap the lines.
    Normally i would say the opposite but due to all the uncertainty i would go with a reliable way of knowing it has oil.

    No oil pump. Has a 2 1/2 gallon tank. Totally restoring this unit for my 12 year old.

    Looks identical but I have more turning veins on the inside. Getting a bit closer every week. Vessel ran b4 I bought it. It was a bit of a mess in and out. It has no drain plug or pump on it. Just wondering how it survived the last 30 yrs.
