Any body know about the Hobart G-213, I picked one up and it has a 2 cylinder Wisconsin, weak spark on 1 cylinder and no compression. I have not torn into it yet but don/t think it will be a problem to get running. question is , where mignt I get parts for this old beast and how old might it be. I figure around 25 years. Is there a source for the old welder electronics if I need them. I will try and post pictures if I get a chance.

Wisconsin made two engines for this welder, THD and TJD. One had 180 crank and the other 360. Early models had distributor and later had mag like the one in previous photo.
Early models had external starter, later units used welder itself to start machine, that is why the two batteries on top. weldersales

Got the valve unstuck, cleaned the points , set timing and fired right up. runs very smooth , fairly quiet and puts out a ton of power for welding, Also generates power for lights and tools. A good buy for $325.
