Smile Wade Drag Saw, Barn Find

Hi everyone,
I new here so be kind and understanding if I might ask a question or two about something I just acquired and want to fix it up.
I have a Wade Drag saw that I purchased from an estate sale for a great price and it seems to be in very good overall condition. The saw has been sitting for years (?) in an old tool shed in the back of the p/o property. The wood frame is in excellent condition, the blade appears to be either new or slightly used. The engine has a magneto to fire the spark plug.
I also acquired another engine with separate cradle for running a circular saw blade (see photo's).
I would like to clean up both engines and try to get them running. I have seen several running on this site and am thrilled to be a part of this seldom seen but fascinating discovery; to be shared with like minded individuals with an inherent appreciation for well constructed, older tools.
