Default 1953 lincoln welder sa 200 w vf4 wisconsin

I want to separate the wisconsin engine from the lincoln welder, I removed the 5 bolts that hold it in place, but will not come apart. I discovered 2 set screws on the shaft inside the fins on the generator, if I remove these will it come apart. I am trying to be cautious. any help wold be appreciated.

Since no one has replied, I will try. I looked at a welder I have and it looks like you need to back the set screws out that hold the welder to the end of the crankshaft of the engine. To get to them, you may have to remove the welder transformer first. Some engine generators have a long bolt that goes through the generator and screws into the end of the crankshaft. Take the end cover off and see if yours has a bolt in the center and remove it if it does. Hope this helps.

like heins said , it could have a bolt down the middle. if it does then it may be a taper shaft. the best way i found to get these off was to tap the hole screw im a grease alemite, pump full of grease as ya can , then hit the rotor with a rubber hammer. just be ready to catch it, or have something soft for it to land on. otherwise it may suffer damage!

I have worked on several SA200's with continental engines. If it is the same on the wisconsin, you have to take the exciter armature out at the generator(one big nut and the brush racks) then slide the big armature out about 4 inches still atached to the crankshaft then you can get to the 8 bolts holding the cooling fins and drive disk. once this is done turn the armature enough to disengage the 4 lugs at the center of the flywheel. hope this helps.

on the armature shaft, it's tight in the bearing for about an inch(I use an oak block and a hammer to tap on the end of the shaft with the nut on it to protect the threads while I pry the engine away from the generator housing. You should be able to see the 8 bolts through the cooling slots at the engine end of the generator. they screw into the flywheel and take a 5/8" wrench. As I said I have only worked on the ones with a continental engine so the wisconsin may be different but I think it will be very similar.
