I bought a engine-driven lincoln welder that looks like it was made in the 40's or 50's, it has a 4-cyl. continental L-series engine and I can't find a parts place. It's so old that every thing on the welder is either steel, copper, or brass......even the radiator is pure copper and brass....I need a total rebuid kit. If you know a web site for this engine please let me know.

sounds kinda like the old sa 200 lincoln. They should be able to help you, if not have you tried your local autoparts store. Buddy of mine had the pipeliner 200g and he bought parts for it outta the auto store. Just basically a car engine in a welding machine. but lincoln site, look up the owners manuals, they have a section for discontinued units. Perhaps be a good thing to have if nothing else. good luck

Continentals were used a lot in the 50's in tractors as well. A vintage tractor site may help you. Try antiquetractor at ytmag.com. If this is like the tractor engine, it has sleeves so you won't have to have machining done.

That engine is the same as used in Miller welders and in Jeeps too. Heck of a good motor.

if your really stuck i imagine you could make a adapter plate to bolt up any motor you wanted to the generator as long as it fits in the frame of you adapt the frame to the motor
hmm..... a 1.8 liter turbo subaru motor might be amusing hehe
