I have a Hobart G 213 Welder Generator SN AAW91735 that I purchased new in September 1974. I have used the AC generator a lot and probably overloaded it at some point.  The problem is there seams to be a flying short somewhere when I put it under load and the armature stalls the engine out. How do I go about finding the problem.

Depends on the parts you need. Some ones from old welders can be rather expensive, it is even more reasonable to buy new model sometimes. Here is a very detailed review on best welder for beginners of nowadays, with actual references to Amazon. You can compare prices, check pros and cons of each item. Good luck!
