    It’s a 1954 if the serial is AC51608.
    You can use the code number to download the parts and Operator’s manual from Lincoln’s website if you wish

    Thanks for the response, Steve. I've tried several times on the Lincoln Electric website, but searches using the Code 2213 or Serial AC51699 return no results. Guess they don't have manuals this old?

    Perhaps on that model they don't. I'm sure you can find some male pin connectors that will work.

    Here's a link to a thread where a machine like your was refurbished. This is how the leads are attached

    Re: My 1954 Lincoln AC180K rehab
    I wanted to mention the end caps on the leads, in case someone else is doing this, or if anyone has a better idea they could share.
    On this welder, the ends of the leads that fit into the sockets on the welder did not have the original end caps/tips. They were simply stripped back, coated with solder, and shoved into the sockets. In the manual they are called "Output lead tip", P/N T-8986. I called Lincoln, of course these have not been available for a long time.

    I ended up finding thick walled copper tubing with an inside diameter that matched the wire conductors, and an outside diameter that matched the welder sockets. I cut off pieces and crimped them tightly onto the leads by flattening one side, into sort of a 'D' shape. When fitting the leads into the welder, the flat side goes against the set screws that tighten them in the sockets. I wire brushed them inside and out prior, to remove any coating or residue.

    I welcome a better idea, though these are cheap and seem to work well so far (plus I can easily make a few more ‘end caps’ if needed with the 1 foot piece of tubing that I bought), which is this:
