Default SA 200 F-163 Lincoln



Could someone help me with finding the Vintage of 2 Lincoln welders ?

A friend gave me a Lincoln SA 200 F-163 that seems to be good enough to get it going again. I found another one for parts only that is exactly like the first one except the serial no.

This is the one I want to restore.

Model SA 200 F-163

Mean output 200 Amperes Code - 6633

40 Volts Serial , A-626846

60 % duty cycle

1550 RPM no load

The serial no. on the parts SA 200 is, A-628743

I would like to know what year both welders were made, because I have been told that some of the windings were changed to Aluminum and were not as good. Thank you for any help with this, Arthur

Thank you Sir, I do appreciate your response and good information.

I also owe Lincoln an apology, The aluminum might not be able to stand abuse as good as copper. There are many ways to abuse a welder, I have always liked the SA 200 ,having used them for many yrs. Maybe this one will help me recapture my youth. Arthur

Hello Mike, I am in the same situation, just gota have something to play with or as an old lady said ( to keep me occupated ).

I have been busy for several months trying to bring a Georgie Mud Buggy back to life, boy what a job. I took my first ride this week, you wouldn't believe the patience and work it took for that little ride. It is a tool for hauling wet concrete in small places. I want to use it as a yard machine for hauling and dumping and general lawn upkeep. It is hydraulic drive and dump and so far I'm happy with how it performs.

I'm probably older than you ,but I'm still going strong even though I had surgery about 7 week ago. Thanks again and take care. Arthur
