    tell me about the MEP-501A

    I figured the batteries would be necessary. I already have a MEP-531a so I'm not going to bother investing in the parts to make this 501a a not so portable 120VAC unit. I really appreciate the replies, saved me a lot of time and money.

    tell me about the MEP-501A

    Sorry to revive an old thread... I have a MEP-501a with only 2.4hrs and it runs like a champ. I was going to use it for battery charging but plans changed. Was trying to sell it but no one in my area wants a bizarre 28V DC gen. Does anyone know if I can directly connect a 24VDC to 120VAC...

    M37 "creating" legroom

    I have a smaller steering wheel in my M37 (came off an S10 I was told) and I can fit my knee in between it and the door. Definitely going to want power steering if you go with a smaller wheel.

    M37 230 flathead oil drain plug question

    First oil change on the PW has me stumped. What bit do I need for the drain plug? It's like a T60 Torx but has 8 points instead of 6. I've heard of them referred to as "double square" and "8 pt star" but can't find anything online. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm surprised the...
