McCulloch Mac 10-10 Fuel Mix?

danapaseMarch 14, 2008

My dad has a mcculloch mac 10-10 chain saw that he bought used about 20 yrs ago. He's been trying to find a manual online, but only came across a parts list. He was hoping it had a little more information, but says the schematic is helpful. The main thing he wanted to know is the fuel mix.

Can anyone tell me the appropriate fuel mix for the Mac 10-10?

Thanks.

The manual recommended 16:1 but that saw was built before modern 2 stroke oil was available.IMHO, 40:1 would be a good place to start with quality brand name oil such as Stihl, Husqvarna, Echo, etc.More will likely foul the plug.

I wouldn't go less than about 32:1 ...........you are much Better to foul a plug than to seize the piston............

40:1 will work perfectly fine in that saw. My frieind has a 10-10 Mac and has been running 40:1 Optimol or Stihl 40:1 oil in it for a few years now in this hot deep south temps and the saw does just fine.
