      I broke 2 brushes that were stuck very hard in their holder.I ordered 4 new brushes from arrowhead electric in calif, They came in I installed them after seating the ends.The engine started right up and sounds good.Now just some tweaking on the engine and I will start on the welding side !

        I've got the engine running pretty good,Now onto the welding section.My fine adjustment rheostat is burnt open on the winding.Looking for a used replacement part.anybody out there who might have one for sale? Also maybe somebody knows of a different model machine that this part might be on?

          Well is managed to soldier a wire past the burnt section on the fine adjustment rheostat.I now only have around 4 ohmn of restive from the 8.25 orginal.I can only rotate the sliding brush about half way because of the soldier joint I put on.I have some ideas on replacing this rheostat thanks to Mia2ofus! I've removed the ballast resistor now,trying to repair or change out some broken porcelain insulators.I've got 3 good one,need 6 more!

              well I managed to cast some insulators and with my old one I got the ballast resistor back installed.This was not a fun project! The g-213 is now up and running and burn some rods today.I need to get some DC rods and some hi-octane gas.Now I need to take it all apart and paint it,

                      The insulators turned out looking good. You might have a little niche market if you're so inclined.
