Marko, there is a dirty little trick that will get the ones with running engines producing power in under 10 minutes 99% of the time. Lincoln used to put it in all the manuals.
Were I you, I'd ride over and eyeball those units. Look for oil leaks from the rear main seal, all llincolns start leaking at 3000 hours. If the engines sound good, and have good oil pressure, they are worth the money.

if the generator isn't open electrically...they just need to be excited again...easy to do with battery and jumpers....500 bucks and you end up with to working machines in under 5 minute of getting them home...tinker with the 3rd and may end up with 3 machines....i have to look up exciting them....think you have to lift one of the brushes when doing.....sell 2 of them and you get your machine for nothing and take money and get new leads

If they were closer to me, I'd jump on them in a flash...as long as they checked out ok.

BM, if the exciter commutator is anyplace near clean, all yo do is hold the brushes back about 20 thousanths one at a time, and let them arc. Generally you only need to do one brush, but the factory spec was doing both brushes.
I've never needed to resort to flashing one with a battery.

i've never had to either ....i just remembered in the manual them saying flash the field...and as far as i can remember i only heard of one that needed flashed.....now thats got me bugged on the how to part....looks like a good reason to grab a bottle of merlot and do some reading....but i'm with you and leaning on the idea of dirty or stuck brushes

marko wants a cheap sa 200 and i'm trying to help him he just ain't cooperating

Marko has become rather stubborn of late. I'm thinkin it's because most of the folks he associates with day to day just let him have his way in the relationship and don't talk back.
Were I in his position, I'd be headed over to eyeball those Lincolns. Hell, I paid $400- for my first used SA200 back in 1965, and it had a leaking rear main seal.
