Default Twentieth Century Welder-- Help!

Just acquired a Twentieth Century 180 amp AC welder. It has plug in leads. It has 4 holes in the front which to plug the leads, but no markings as to which goes where. It appears to have a high and low side, according to the dial on the front. Anybody have one of these or know which holes to use? Thanks

The four holes below the dial are starting from the left: first hole is high for the electrode, second is cutting ground only, third is ground, and fourth is low for the electrode. Hopes this helps you out.

Is it red, blue or green with dial on the front side or red & silver with dial on the top ? Lincoln Electric bought out Century and may can help with manuals for it. Have a green one with dial on front and it's like the one Heins described above. Low, Med, High and two ground holes. Later red & silver ones were the same but the holes went from top to bottom instead of left to right.

Enter Century welder in the box some manuals are online or contact them for others.
