How does it work?

Here's one needing some identification and manuals. It's a 1938 60 HP Ford V8 powering a 220 amp Hobart simplified welder made the same year. It doesn't have a specification number so nobody can help with manuals. Does anyone know how to work one of these? The engine runs great, but welding is intermittent. Thanks. John Hamilton, 910 W.
