    Default Owner manual

    If you take the 4 digit code number and enter it at lincoln's website you can download the owners manual and parts pages, both of which will come in handy.

    Or you can call them up and they'll mail you a copy.

    As far as the power wash, I don't know. Thats a travel at your own risk kind of thing. It can be done without hurting anything, but you have to be careful around a lot of parts.

    You can powerwash the crap off of it, just change the airfilter oil afterwards.

    Default Dust

    As far as being greasy, the only greasy parts are the oil filter, looks like the filter weeped. The filter base and copper line are greasy.
    The oil bath air cleaner is covered from top to bottom.
    Every thing else is covered with dust.
    I try to post pictures tomorrow.
    Thanks,
    Bob

    Not to throw a wrench into your statement, but I have a 1971, round barrel, R-57 idler, (parts machine) it has a black face.

    Default 12 volt

    This Machine has a 12v alternator on it and the parts book said '71 and newer.
    I did not look close but it seemed like the alt and wiring were painted gray.
    Last night I tried to load the pictures but the files were to big, so I'll will go back today and shoot smaller files.
    Rig Hand, Thanks for the owners and parts manual. I printed them out last night.
    There is not a lot of info in the owners manual.
    Like it says 200 amps @ 60% duty cycle, but nothing about the total range and what the taps are.
    I did like the soft arc, stiff arc, OCV thing.
    Thanks Guys,
    Bob Miller

    It is a lot easier to find the sweet spot on an SAE using that technique.
    Before the SAMs came out I always tried to grab an SAE-400 if one was available, you can dial in a wire feeder really quick on an SAE.

    Default More Info

    I had lunch with my friend today and got more info on that SA-200.
    He said he bought it as a rental return and it was rented out for two weeks.
    He also said 10 yrs. ago he took it in and had it fixed (?) and repainted, about $300worth. He said he paid $1200 for it new.

    The fixed part might explain the alternator and the spin on oil filter.

    He said there is a dent in the hood, (bought it that way) but I can not see it for the dust.
    One bracket that holds the hood on at the face plate end is missing, the other side is loose. I never looked at the bracket on the inside of the machine, to see how it is made. On the outside it appears to be a rod with end smashed flat with a hole for the bolt. In the parts book they are called angle brackets.

    As far as price he will get back to me.

    Thanks again,
    Bob

    Are they the “L” bracket type? Stumpf has them $1.69. 13th item down right side column.

    Great looking machine!
    Wonder why Lincoln used different dial pointers for the red faces? That machine your looking at has different pointers than mine, look at Stump's home page, all those red face welders have the same pointers as mine. But I've seen other red faces with the same pointers, as the one you're looking at.
