    They were a great saw back in there day.
    Had much more power than the Homelite
    super XL and pretty bullet proof.
    I sold many back in the late 70's early 80's.

    Looks like a good deal. Now go drop that bar in some green wood to get it all shined up and you've got a winner. Decals look in real nice shape.

    I've got an AL-42 that I take out every once in a while. Sure is fun to run, but loud enough to wake the dead.

    Also looking for parts

    I also just picked up a Lombard model 3-16 at an auction for $7.00. Had no spark so we took it apart and found the lobe that opens the points broken in about 4 pieces. I'm in need of that part and a new set of points and a condenser. Also could use a new cap for the gas and chain oil. the ones one it were Lombard parts, but they don't thread in unless you put a lot of Teflon tape on the threads. Any one knowing a place to get parts for this, let me know. It is a really sweet looking saw and I would like to get it running.
    :cry: :cry:

    Comango is a strong saw. Fun to run, but still use it out in the woods (late 60's production - straight pipe, 16 b/c). Yours looks like a later 70's production (box muffler).
    Enjoy it!

    I have a Fury 681 but have not had time
    to mess with it.
    It has the AH81 Power Products motor and
    a gear drive. It should have all kinds of
    power with the 130cc motor.

    Lombard's

    ryans --

    These saws are about 70cc's. Way stonger than an XL12...

    I have a AP-42. Very impressed with it's quality of construction.
    They made these saws tough!

    Tune it real crisply -- you'll be impressed.
    Also, run some very good Full Synthetic Oil.

    Regards.

    Memories from when I was a kid

    OF course it was stronger than a Homolite.......(the common pronuciation back then)
    It had FULLY JEWELED BEARINGS.......marketing isn't new.

    A full cubic inch bigger displacement than an XL-12 might of helped some though

    Commango

    Interesting Point ..............

    Lombard, way back when, ran a National Contest for naming there new, top-line saw that was to be introduced very soon.
    Lots of entries came in.

    A little girl won the contest !

    She said it was a Chainsaw that anyone could, "Command & Go!".

    So, Commango it was ...........

    Lombard Saw

    Here's a vid of my old Lombard at the NC GTG last Saturday. I think it's a AP42D. Has a decomp valve. While you're their check out the other peeps starting on p.16 and some rep for all the guys that made this happen. Thanks for the vid Wanab! :clap:

    lombard commango

    I've got one that I don't use much because of an oil leak that I haven't gotten around to fix.

    I used it for years till I bought a stihl.
    I don't consider it an antique that refuse to use I just have never fixed the leak.
    I loved using that saw, only it smoked alot because of the leak and I just bought a new stihl and stopped using it.

    I noticed I like the feel of the lombard. In a some way I like it almost better.

    Its a fast cutter as far as stock saws go.

    Its seems as if it cuts quicker than the stihl.
    It is easier to nose straight in, if you need to do that. ie mortices.
    Very dependable, many miles on it too.
    I'd buy and use another if I saw one.
    Excellent saw.
    Loud though but sounds cool.

    I'll try to post some pics if I fix it.

    Thanks for the info as well.
