Sounds like a 340. Measure the throat. If it is around 10.5", it is a
340. If it is around 8", it is a 205. I assumue it is not a three
Both the 340 and the 205 are direct drive from the motor.
The 'manual' is the worst piece of crap it has been my displeasure to
read - to put it politely. It is horribly written in French, German, and
English and manages to make little sense and convey only minimal
information in all three languages. I read English and German and thought
that perhaps both had been poorly translated from French. A friend who
reads French looked over the French sections and suggested they might be
a poor translation from Finnish or Tagalog.
If you cannot find a copy, let me know and I'll mail a copy of useable
pages to you - did I mention that it is a copy of a copy of a copy, or
looks like that.
The parts diagram would likely be the most help to you. Unfortunately the
parts diagram does not come with a key - that's right, just a poor
drawing of a part and a very long number.
Other than that, they are a great little saw with the only potential
issue being the dovetailed mitre slot and guage.
