Nice saw. I am not familiar with the model, but on some older saws the plunger was for oiling the chain. (no automatic oilers) Push it every now and then to supply oil to chain while cutting. Button on the side of the throttle should hold the throttle open for easier starting. Pull the trigger, push in on the button; throttle will stay depressed. Once the saw is running, pull the throttle trigger and saw will go to idle. Kind of like a third hand. Allows a good grip on the saw's top handle with one hand; while pulling the rope with the other. Hope this helps.

Should be around 1958-1959 , there's still quite a few kicking around the harder ones to find are the first year 1956 models.
