    Looks to me like the stihl pressure/vac testing kit. Has the flanges for blocking off carb and such. What a great neighbor

    Looks like a metric dial indicator for precise measuring, #4 on the illustration. Items #5 and #6 are probably used with it. JMHO.

    Yeh sorry no clue. I just got the mightyvac. Those are pricey but handy. All I know is you plug a bunch of holes then blow or suck air out of the last hole.

    Looks like a depth gauge to me. That's not a pressure/vac gauge.

    Look for a spark plug hole adapter to go with it, this then would be for ignition timing of the old points style ignition of the all metal monsters of yesteryear.

    It’s used to set point gaps .0xx(thousands) before top dead center. Some are made to thread into spark plug hole. Does it have the brackets that mounts to the saw for the different series?

    Its for setting the ignition timing.
    It produces a loud beep noise, which changes when the breaker opens.
    You put one wire on the case and one on the screw for the condenser cable on the breaker.
    Set the distance beforce TDC with the gauge and then set the timing until it changes the noise.
    I will make a video of this on tuesday, this tool works fine after 40 years of excessive usage.

    if i see this right #8 shoudl be screwed in to the spark plug thread and press the gauge in it.
    you need to test which extension (#5-#7) you have to use on the gauge.
    Basicly #3 to #13 are iginition setting parts.

    Nice little indicator. I’ve seen them a thousand times more accurate.

    But not for working on any saws!!!
