This is about a 1950s D35 Clinton Chief Chainsaw with what I believe is a 24" bar.
I believe it hadn't been started in over 35 years 2 days prior to this video. It had no chain when I found it. About a year after this video I was able to find an old chainsaw repair shop in Washington that had a chain that works great.
The only problem is once you put any pressure into wood it bogs down and will stall out.
I've replaced the fuel filter after that but have not been able to fire it up since. I've been thinking about giving it to a repair shop and replacing more parts with one I get off ebay.
This is some updated information from more research I've done.
