Airco CV-450 Conversion

I have a Airco CV-450 mig welder and was wondering if I could convert this machine to run on 230 volts. I have seen several post about converting the Miller CP-200 to 230 volts and would like to try and convert the Airco CV-450 if at all possible. I have a 10/20 three phase converter but would like to convert the Airco CP-450 to 230 volts if I can. I am by no means an electrician but am capable with help to do the job with the right guidance. Don't know the year but the serial number is RG804347 if someone knows how to find the date by the serial number. I tried and could not find anything.

If it can be done it should have links near where the input power goes in.

A simple matter to move them they are always labeled.

If not your wasting your time it would cost more then the welder is worth.
