There is a data plate on the welder that will tell you what the input power is. If the power cord is a 3 prong plug it is only single phase.

No data plate or power cord on this machine.

You are not trying
The picture in post #4
Upper left hand corner I can make out "INPUT-SINGLE PHASE"
voltage should also be listed.

Cant make out the CODE No in the picture for the proper manual.

Also see same upper side that the switch that switches from remote to Panel is broken off
If the switch is stuck in the remote position the welder will likely "not" work without the remote foot control.

It will need to be switched to the panel control position for panel controls to work......

Indeed, this bit of information will change the course of my day. I was planning to drive the van to further inspect the welder, I will now be taking the truck.

I bought the welder for $150 but I didn't bring it home. The yard owner allowed me to keep it there until I'm ready. I offered to pay him a 20% restocking fee if I decide to return it.

I met a man there who knew a good deal about the welder. He said he would have bought it if I didn't. He showed me a cooling unit attached to a large machine that he believes would work nicely with my welder. He was going to buy it before a vehicle bumped into it. The workings are mostly undamaged but the stainless sheet metal is not. I may buy it if it is there the next time I go.

I also found about forty feet of unused 1/0 welding cable and a ground clamp which I paid $30 for. I bought the stick clamp a few months ago at the same yard.

Thanks to all for your help.

You done good, maybe... Depending on the cost of the cooler, the tank can be substituted with another vessel or repaired. The money is in the motor, pump, fan and radiator--the tank is secondary.
