    Default Bought it.

    Well I bough it, about a year later, brought it home, washed it and put it in the barn.
    In fact I bought 2 more. '62 real rough and a '59 not quite as good as the '68.
    I got the '59 at a yard sale. Brought it home cleaned the gas tank added a new petcock, and fired it up. Loaded it to 350 amps and purrs like a kitten.

    I got the"68 out of the barn oiled the cylinders and fired it up and loaded it to 350 amps. This one had a hard time pulling 350 amps. I'm going to clean the gas tank and kit the carb. The R-57 was out of adjustment (nut came loose) so it was locked at high idle when I loaded it. I cleaned it up and put it back together and tried it. Now
    no arc. Before I had a chance to work on it more, the painter got it and striped off the carb and manifold and started sanding the engine. It will be painted next week. I got the paint code from one of Kaye Sellon posts on another forum.
    That paint color comes in industrial and automotive finish. I choose the auto finish as it is shinier than the industrial.

    So I have two SA-200 being restored at the same time.

    The 3rd SA-200 Blue tint red face '62, I got cheap and it will take lots of time and $$$.

    To be continued.

    Good Luck,
    Bob

    The 62 will only have 4 weld positions and a skinny black face. Yours being a red face is 67-1973

    Default Just plain fun

    Just got back from KY, that's why I'm late to answer this. Beautiful state, but too humid for me. I couldn't wait to get back to sunny CA.
    It's only going to be 109* on Monday and 111* on Tuesday and 110* Wednesday.

    Back to the SA-200 thing. I never paid any antention to any thing Lincoln.
    That's not my last name, if it was yeah then sure.

    So after I fired the SA-200 up and it settled down to an idea, I knew what the excitment was about. It crackles at first and idles down to just a purr.
    I don't weld much pipe, so I may never know the special bead that it puts out.
    It's just that sound and it burned a stick of 3/16 7018 like butter(melts in real nice).

    At this stage it's all apart in the paint barn primered and
    hanging from wires. The motor and barrel are out of the frame. I have 2 new hoods coming, 1 for this one, and 1 for the '59.

    I'll try the picture thing but don't get your hopes up.

    Good Luck,
    Bob

    Default Hoods

    I ordered the wrong hoods from Stumpf's Welding Supply.
    I ordered the hoods with a notch for the radiator cap because the '62 hood was bent right at that spot.
    Stumpf's will not take the hoods back because they were direct shipped from Lincoln.
    As of right now everything is painted except the hoods.
    BTW the hoods I got from Stumpf's came painted the new color.
    Monday the reassembly starts. I have pictures at the office, I'll try to post.
    Good Luck,
    Bob
