    68 Sa200 Need major help

    Hi, i have a old 1968 sa200

    the welder does run and strike a arc but i noticed that here is some major arcing going on in the main gen area
    i took the shield off and its looks like its coming from the brushes.. i checked all the brushes and they seem to be in good
    shape and they're all free not hanging up.

    the welder does Idle up when i strike a arc but the gen arcs really bad. not sure what to do at this point

    please help me thanks again

    From the photo you sent me the armature has a short causing that damage to the commutator bars. Gonna need a replacement or rewind.

    Rewinds are expensive. Here's one example from the rewinder I use:

    Located in CA shipping adds to the figure.

    You may be fortunate to find a parts unit in or close to your area with a good replacement.
