    Need help! 1947 sa200 short hood

    2 days ago I acquired a 1947 sa200. It had sit in a barn for long while. Within a few hour I got it up and running great. I have a few questions. First question does anyone know about the coiled regulator thing like what it is and how to work it? I know it works off vacuum but I am clueless. Second question does any know where to get a replacement chain that runs the fine adjustment? Third, it's not striking an arc currently any suggestions

    #1 - R-51 Bellow Idler - there's quite a bit of info on them here. Search for bellows idler
    #2 - Any hardware store worth its salt
    #3 - Its been discussed once every 2 weeks at least on here. Clean exciter and main generator armature commutator bars with a stone or fine sandpaper. Make sure brushes aren't stuck and appropriate length. Possibly flash the fields.

    Thank you. Very new to these older machines. Just hoping I didn't get in over my head

    I can't remember exactly what the chain looks like, but I think the proper name is jack chain.

    taray787 when I bought this 1966 Red Face, it didn’t weld. About 15-minutes after I got it home I had it welding. All the brushes were froze in the holders.
