Hey guys I picked up a 250 NT, after getting it home its quite the mess but the price was right, I was told it ran and welded years ago when put into storage then when started years later it would not put out power. I found F6 and F2 both to be bad and blown. I popped the flywheel and found a destroyed stator and no magnets left in the flywheel, so before I buy any parts I would like to make sure the welding/generation portion of the machine is functional. On that end I found F2 to be open and the CAP to be shorted, the bridge and other diode are fine but I will change them anyway, the ohms across the slip rings is about 3ish, this is an 8k generator model. What else should I look for before I start ordering stuff?? I appreciate any and all help


Thanks Mike
