Default Old Miller engine driven welder

I bought an older Miller welder today. The front panel is faded real bad. I can read the 200 amp and 65% duty cycle but that's about it. It has a single cylinder Tecumseh engine with electric start and 1 110 outlet on the front panel. Does anyone know if and where the serial # maybe stamped on the generator. It smokes when it first starts but clears up after it warms up and seems to weld smooth. I checked the Miller site and unless you have the serial # it only gives you the latest version of the manual. Any help would be appreciated.

John

I'll lay a Dollar to a donut you can still get a new overlay for the panel if you want to restore it.

On the Miller welders That I repair at work the serial # is on that front plate like pic 3 shows. It should be near the on/off switch or near that Duplex outlet. Thats where they usually are on my Miller machines. However those welders are not engine driven. They're 3 Phase 230v. Kevin

Looks like the first 2 characters in the red box say "S/N" so that's probably where your serial number used to be.
Send Miller your pictures; I bet they can identify it.
