If you don't get an answer here, I'd try posting this in the Chainsaw forum at Arboristsite.

make a gasket if need be. Gasket paper is available at most hardware stores. I use Permatex gasket sealer #2B. It is non-hardening. It is old school stuff. Apply it, let it skin over for about 20 minutes and assemble.

I have an old Remington saw model number SL-9. How can I find out what year it was made?Serial number pm9937.

Have you all tried "Chain Saw Collectors' Corner" at the address below for info? Plus, post pics or links, I would like to see the "Monsters". A Remington gas saw vs electric is new to me. I serviced a few old Homelites in the mid 70s that were giants and old. The newer small saws were all the average owner had around here. Loger
