After a lot of searching,I finally turned up an ok Stihl Lightning.
The 75 year old owner only sold it to me because it was fairly low in compression,and he had another Lightning he uses on the big timber.
I was pretty impressed at the way this old bloke chucked his one around and sliced through a 3 foot redgum log easily. Hope i'm as good at his age!

My new saw has little compression,but is in good shape,apart from a crack in the crankcase under the pullstart.
Came with a 26" embossed Stihl bar.
so,will begin a rebuild in a few weeks,and hopefully document the process

Looks to be the 106cc model (counting the cooling fins above the transfers). Its alot nicer than mine! What are your plans for the saw? Run it, restore it or sit it on the shelf? It looks well cared for that saw, hopefully some rings can bring the comp to where it should be. Looks like .404 chain too which makes sense these days, my one I found at the tip had 1\2 inch semi chisel and a bar that looks identical to yours.

It's the factory 17" bar that has the Stihl embossed in it.
