    How do the brushes look? Have they been replaced lately?

    Does it act the same no matter what its set on? Might be a bad Rheo, or lose wire somewhere. Is it wired for a Cables remote?

    Might need to be flashed? 35 years and 320 hrs suggests it was sitting for sustantial time. Maybe full of mice nest or insects.

    I had that happen with a 400. There was a terminal broke on the back of the main rheostat. A little silver solder and she was good as new

    Well the hour meter doesn't mean much as these units never originally came with an hour meter intalled.

    As for the weld sparking, likely a failed rheostat, you didn't mention if you had auxillary power or not.
