    We Need An SA-200 Info/FAQ Sticky

    ZTFab, think we can get a sticky up with SA 200 FAQ's. Part Numbers, distributors, general info and links.

    Some basic motor part numbers here.
    Spark Plugs(you need 4 ) Champion D-16 gap .025
    Oil Filter, Fram PB50, WIX 51050, NAPA 1050, Baldwin B50
    Head Gasket, Fel-Pro 7183PT
    Carb kit for a Marvel carb, NAPA 2-1401

    A great SA-200 Link www.weldmart.com

    If we can sticky all this stuff that would be great.

    I think that would be cool as well.

    Isn't it amazing the popularity of the SA-200, especially the old one. It's almost like a cult following or something. I used to think they couldn't be that special, what's so special about them. People say they are the best welders made bla,bla. That was before I owned one. Now I drive around and look for another old one to pull out of the weeds and fix. I've had mine running for two months, and have used it at least 5 times a week after work and on Sat. I don't know how I got along with out it. I know eventually I'll run out of stuff to weld, and it'll go back under the shed, but I'll never not have one.

    Re: We Need An SA-200 Info/FAQ Sticky

    I Was working a job in Baton Rouge and this pipe welder told me about the sa-200 "Red Face" and I knew I had to get one. Later, My GF on another job told me he had one at his house in TX and said if I came down, he would give it to me. The engine was locked up. Anyway, on my way to TX, I found another one on a trailer and bought it for $500.00 and brought both home. On the way home, I found another for $400.00, which I will pick up within the next month. I have the one on the trailer dismantled and will start on an engine rebuild as soon as I can. I have a strong background in auto engine repair, and 20 years of body repair and paint (Air Force). I plan to rebuild all of them and sell one or two. One thing I can say for sure, they are very well made. I hope to move into pipe welding soon but need some further instruction in getting the root down..............

    Set tee points at .020 and you should be good to go. The ones in mine are still eyeball gaped and she runs fine.

    I just "rebuilt" the carb on one I just picked up with 2 cans of carb cleaner. It runs and welds ok, but needs a real rebuild in the future.

    There are 2 widths of fan belts used over the yrs. The older ones used the wider belt.

    I dont know about the bosch mags, but I recomend you use genuine Fairbanks parts for Fairbanks mags. They cost more but fit perfectly and last the longest.

    Be sure to set the float level on a TSX Marvel Schebler carb at 1/4" with the gasket instaled.

    If we can sticky all this stuff that would be great.
    Hi all, I'm new here, just found this group. I've owned a Lincoln SA-200 for about 12 years. I've done considerable work on mine, including new rings, bearings, gaskets, brushes, etc. I also grafted a waterpump from a 1983 mazda RX-7 on to my welder. The old one had quit working/leaked when the previous owner had it, with parts hard to find, I took the old one off and put a pulley on in it's place and put a water pump off the mazda on it and drove it with a belt, it works great.
    Tozzi, I don't think your parts list will work for my SA-200.
    My SA-200 has a Hercules IXB5 engine in it. The casting date of the engine is 11-27-1939. It takes Champion W-20 spark plugs. The Fel-Pro gasket set is part number FS 7557 S-2. Rings for it are Sealed Power SP 617X or TRW T1387X
    IXB5 firing order is 1243 spark plug gap =.025 Breaker point gap =.020 ignition timing mark is DC 1-4 on the flywheel Cylinder head torque = 40 ft lbs.
    Valve seat Angle is 30 degrees valve clearance is .006 HOT for intake and .008 HOT for exhaust valves Outer minimum valve spring lbs @ inch length is 42lbs @ 1 3/16 in (no inner spring is used)
    IXB5 piston clearnace is .0035, wrist pin diameter is.75 Ring end gap minimum is .015 for COMP and OIL Rod bearings shaft diameter 1.747-1.748 rod bearing clearance is .991-.0015 Rod bolt torque is 42 ft lbs. main bearings shaft diameter is 1.987-1.988 main bearing clearance is .002-.0025 and main bolt torque is 77ft lbs
    IXB5 bore and stroke is 3 1/4 X 4 Displacement is 133 Cu In. Compression ratio is 6.50 HP is 46 @3200 RPM torque is 92 ft lbs @ 1800 RPM Normal oil pressure is 20 lbs oil capacity is about 5-6 quarts on my model
    I have a book with specs in it for the Hercules motors and others plus I wrote down information I collected while rebuilding the engine.
    This welder is so old, it doesn't have a code. It's a redface machine though. I called/go by Lincoln or local repair/parts house and they ask me for a code, I tell them it doesn't have one and then they give me this dumb look, like they don't know what to do and they act shocked that there is no code. I tell them it's a late 1939 model, then they understand....lol
    The hand crank on it still works, last time I fired her up, she welded like a dream, prettiest welds I've ever seen. I replaced the brushes in the generator so that made all the difference.
    Hope this info helps someone out there. I've been all through this machine. I had two others , one of which I parted out and used some parts from it for the 39 model, the other I sold along with part of the parts machine (both those machines were newer than the 39 model I have, I looked up the casting dates on the side of the engine block.
