      I would like to see more pictures of how you redid the welder. I remember seeing those rusty before pictures, but I never saw any after.

          Did not take photos of the repair.
          So I will attempt to describe the repair
          I cut the entire floor out of the welder. Using a Matabocutting grinder (a true favorite tool).

          Checked the windings. And they were intact and not grounded.

          So I made angle iron Frames. That used threaded rod. Andnuts to sandwich the laminated core of the windings.

          Welded in a new floor. And welded the angle frames back inthe welder.

          Also replaced a capacitor, a fuse. And cleaned most of theelectric connections.

          Loads of work. But I now have a nice working unit. For afraction of used.

          I enjoy repairing and restoring nice quality vintageequipment. But trust me this was a gamble most would no attempt.
          Youshould see my John Deere 318.
          That is repowered with a Kohler 25HP V-twin (without a kit).
          Custom:
          Drive shaft, Mufler, PTO clutch & adaptor, Runs and looks like new.
