    Mine does not have fuses at all. Your machine is newer as the later variants did have circuit protection. Slip ring to slip ring resistance is open on my machine, and it should be less than two ohms so the rotor is compromised somewhere. It was really common in the machines that did not have fuses.

    I ran my machine for a spell today and had just over 74VDC open circuit voltage at the welding terminals. My machine has never made ACV since I've had it as the rotor has a burnt open wire I assume which was fairly common. I've had my machine since 1974 so quite familiar with it. I've probably burned over a ton of Stoody "31" hardfacing rod with it over the years, and I'm not kidding.

    I don't remember if yours has a starting motor or uses a winding. Mine uses a winding and of the leads exiting the enclosure the right one is positive, and the left is negative. The positive is considerably longer also as the starting system is 24VDC. Both cables are black.

    Thanks for the help auto affair and letting me know that switch is just a start switch

    Ya I assumed at first the red cables inside the machine where positive until I looked at the electrical schematic to find otherwise

    I'm not looking at a print but sounds like you can handle it. Most everything is there that needs to be so you're on the right track.

    And yes I do have ac power to all plugs. I also had to fix that. One fuse was blown and the electrical plug was smashed to nothing. I also had intermittent power which was caused by the screw in fuse holder tabs inside being flat causing the fuse to be too short (as far as I can tell on the tab part) I added springs in the screw in fuse part to solve this.

    There must be a more detailed repair manual for these welders? I am pretty smart with troubleshooting and finding ways o do so and reading electrical schematics. But known voltage
    and resistance checks would be very helpful.

    And yes if I flip that switch to standby power it works a bit
