Default Lincoln Short Hood

You fellas got me some good help with my carb problem---maybe someone can straighten me out on some sheetmetal. I am looking to find a set of doors to fit my SA200 w/F163 engine, 1967 model, and I see the term "short hood" mentioned. Just what exactly is the difference between a "short hood" and a "long hood", dimension-wise. The hood on my machine measures (I think) 53" long.

Any wisdom someone out there can share will be appreciated.

Thanks, Stu, that explains it. Mine would be the "long hood" cause everything from one end to the other is covered by the hood.

Did you find any doors? I've seen used ones in ads on the AWS forum and others post about new reproduction hoods, doors and covers from a shop in Oklahoma and stainless ones from Corpus Christi Texas. Some are even fancy custom ones with louvers punched out.

The short hood refers to the hood that does not extend over the face of the welder, where as the long hood has a hood that extends beyond the face of the welder.

Thanks for posting the pics. Your middle pic is a short hood the generator is not all covered. The ones in pic on right are long hoods. Has nothing to do with the instrument face area.

Yes #2 is another short hood. Not sure what years they made them with hoods like that. Many have had hoods changed and can get new reproduction sheet metal for them too. For parts and sheet metal there has been many places listed for those on the AWS forum too where there is a column dedicated to the Lincoln 200s.
