SOURCE: I have a 125 lincoln

check you ground cable, try to strike and ark on the ground cable, if no ark test the ground circuit if the circuit is ok you will need to have the transformer tested and for that you need some specal tools.

Will not generate or weld,was working ok last time it was running about 1 year ago.

It probably has lost all residual magnetic field from the rotor.

You may need to "flash" the field to restore operation.

Search Google for instructions. Sometimes others have found that plugging in an electric drill that does NOT have a throtling trigger and spinning it while connected to the generator will get the generation started again. There are other methods as well.
