Do some reading here:

You can run a voltage sensing feeder like your off of a CC (constant current) machine like an SA-200, and burning a flux core wire such as nr 211, but you won't get the greatest results. I've run Millers version of a ln 25, the S-32P, but didn't use it long before I decided it's best to stick with stick welding on a CC machine. If you want to run wire, get a CV power source, or a CC/CV power source to run your LN-25. Or get a regular feeder and set it up for hard wire MIG or better yet, dual shield wire.

Keep the sparks flyin'

Not the best setup but-
Years ago Lincoln made a box for the SA welders that converted CC to CV mounted on outside of machine - was maybe 9" X 12" X 4"deep
This is by memory -I have used a couple of machines like this but have never owned one Perhaps someone else remembers them or are still listed on lincoln site
Voltage sensing wire feeders tend to have a lot of burn backs
At one time LN 25 could be bought as CC or a CV unit
Do you know wich yous is ?

dont know that yet code is 10233 but ive tried nr211 wire its just ok my old machine i cant find a wire feed module for it I would like to be able to weld thin metal like body panels or exhaust without getting my tig out or my oxy acet torch I think wire would be the fastest and easiest

I think you should try to find a Lincoln dealer who does repairs in your area. If that does not work contact Lincoln and ask to your district manager contact you
To do body work and exhaust I think MIG would be a better choice than flux cored (innershield ) wire
There is good news bad news
industrial Lincoln feeders are like erecter sets - to go from flux core to MIG get different drive wheels, add solenoid and change gun assy.
You also need to get a cv adapter or cv converter for your
SA 200 as well as a control cable
I suspect it would be much cheaper to get another power supply

Ah made it to cyberspace, I never would claim to be a guru, but I have used inner shield. I love it! sticks like glue and never "blows up" like dual shield, especially at the end of a qualifier pass. It works in the wind. Yet the down sides are: all the properties of 7018 stick, A pretty weld if your a welder, otherwise, it will never be glassy like dual shield ( a Constant voltage process). It also has slag. The deposition rate is probably double what stick can do. (constant current, as well as inner shield [and the reason you often see the feeder mounted to mobile equiptment]). Care must be taken to keep the wire (electrode) clean and dry. This was not well known in the seventies. I always make structural welds with stick if I possibly can, it's better. But if your building skyscrapers thats the machine to have, don't ever let it go. If you do, let me know! Keep arching.... cybermars...........
