    The fan threads on there and your machine should have them.

    Thanks Duane,
    I kinda figured that, but wasn't sure. Now I need to figure out how to hold the fan, so I can remove that bolt with the 15/16 head.

    I'm still trying to figure out how to remove that durn bolt without having to tear the whole front of the machine apart.
    I'm going to make adapter to hold the fan,which will keep the rotor from turning. Then see if I can unscrew that bolt..

    If this don't work then I'm going to drill a hole thur the bolt from the motor side of the rotor, as the hole thur the rotor is 31/64.
    I'm going to weld an extension on a 31/64 bit and drill, hopefully maybe it will release that bolt w/left hand threads and unscrew it.

    The friend I'm fixing this welder for, really don't want to spend anymore money on it, so it is leaving me between a rock and a hard spot.
    And I am not charging him for my time, just parts! But it will be done right, I'm one of these individuals " If I can't do it right, then I don't want to do it at all !!"

    Duane I got the bolt out, someone put in a 1 inch long 5/8 rh thread bolt with some sort of epoxy on it.
    I made a tool that would hold the fan close the to hub. I first tried turning it as if it was LH thread, I turned but
    felt like it was tightening up more. So turned it to the left and I could tell it was getting loose. Boy do I hate it when
    someone mickey mouses thing together.

    I will post pictures of my home made tool, as soon as I find memory card reader.

    Wow! Incredible.

    Gonna be a bit of a challenge getting a new thru bolt in there without pulling the front panel I would think.

    Nope! put the 5/16th althread thur the rotor before I put the motor back on, if it is too long I'll cut it off with a small grinder with a cut-off wheel or hacksaw.
    The rotor is 15 3/4" inside measurement, (motor)pto slids inside of rotor 2 5/8" and the hole in the end of the crank stub is 1 1/4 deep. Therefore I am assuming the original bolt is approximately 14.125" to 14.25" long, then add for a nut and jam nut.

    This is photos on how the tool was used on the fan to remove the bolt someone gerry rigged in there.
    I figured I needed to make it so it was close to the center hub, as not to break any of the fins.

    The C is 3" inside, set back is 1 1/2" and the hook part is 1 1/4'(PART THAT HOOKS ON THE FINS)

    Re: WeldanPower 225 Help needed

    Nice job on the holding tool.

    Now that I can see it, that's not the threaded fan version but rather the keyed smooth shaft style. The fan is retained by the thru bolt and large washer.

    What I would do is use a piece of all thread or smooth rod threaded on both ends of the appropriate length as I suggested earlier threaded into the crank so that all you have to do is place the large flat washer and a lock nut on the fan end and tighten it up when you re-mate the engine to the generator. Put the sheet metal back on and done.

    Re: WeldanPower 225 Help needed

    I just replaced the same 26 inch bolt in my Weldanpower ac 225 dc 210 /6k after doing an engine swap and had a similar problem. That bolt holds the rotor and fan in the right position location with the engine. It threads into the motors output shaft and needs an appropriate tension / friction to turn off of the engines power. I welded a nut onto to a piece of all thread and used that. (A cheap fix) Keep in min the position / placement of the slip rings to the brushes incase they have moved any.

    Since my new engine wasn't a perfect fit I had to create an adaptor plate and shim it for a proper match. So keep in mind you may have to do some troubleshooting when using non original parts like a new rotor bolt.

    Re: WeldanPower 225 Help needed

    Hey ;

    I had the bolt broken in mine and had a heck of a time getting it apart. I remember soaking the tapered shaft and "tapping" in that one spot on the shaft where you don't trash the unit. Took three days of work before they finally let go.
    So , right, my rotor was turning without a bolt holding it together. On the bolts way out it tore up the fan blade as well. Got another on of them and a bolt from Stumpfs. they are on the web.
