T34C, the carbs are a bit different, but the basic motor is the same. Ive got a couple of oldies and im about to restore the cowling from one of them to go on my 1991(the one in the pic).

On the newer ones, there is no knob, but there is a high speed mixture adjustment screw. It is a bit of a pain to hit if the motor is running, or its dark.

I love the older 2cyl small motors. Ive got the 1991 Johnson on the back of an Avon inflatable and it will plane off with just me in it. Ive also got a 2001 Nissan 3.5 and it wont plane the Avon at all. The extra cylinder gives it that little bit of an edge.
