    The tale of an '003A

    You took the most important step for the life of your MEP-003a... you found this forum! Not only that but you did the research and uncovered answers to problem(s) your genset was having. The fact that you were able to troubleshoot your genset and follow the advice on this forum without having...

    MEP002A Oil Pump

    Yep, the oil pump was good until the foreign object, loose roll pin, entered the scene and tried to mate with the oil pump.

    MEP-803a possible battery short

    Should you decide to look at commercial fuel additives, I really like the all-in-one treatment approach of using Optilube XPD. In addition to adding lubricity to fuel it raises the cetane, cleans injectors & prevents fuel gelling (other mfg brands say similiar). The ratio they suggest below 32F...

    MEP002A Oil Pump

    Just out of curiosity... how many hours on the engine when your pump met its demise? Just wondering if there is a trend of any sort developing. beyond a certain hour range.

    MEP-803a possible battery short

    Yes, unless the other battery is very close to new you MUST replace both batteries as a set. You probably don't know the history of the batteries since you said the genset is "fairly new to you". Especially if temps are dropping is when marginal batteries fail. Since it was starting &...

    100KW Diesel MEP 1080 TM

    Wow, now that is some "collective knowledge" and then some!!! Very interesting story to say the least. However, not very encouraging for the ownership of this beast! Yeah, I remember the Gov't bid process from many years ago as the company I worked for submitted a bid for a NAVAIR contract...

    100KW Diesel MEP 1080 TM

    So with the understanding there are no TM's for this model what are you wanting to do? Does it not run, is there a problem with it, are you wanting to bring it into service or...? There is a lot of "collective knowledge" on these SS Generator forums that just might be able to help if you...

    MEP-003A Bridge Rectifier Assembly Board R1 Resistor value

    Not sure if this is any help however...I have a blown up D size schematic for MEP-003A/-002A although its really hard to read pin #'s due to poor reproduction quality. However it appears that P67A16 Pin 5 does go to the A2 VR Board and on into the Control Box to "T1" Transformer's X2 tap then...

    Mep 016B Fuel issue(Hurricane Ida help)

    Sounds like you found the problem. Hopefully all goes well with getting the injection pump freed up and returned to working order. Reading CallMeColt's thread its fairly easy & straightforward once you get into it.

    MEP-003 AUX Fuel Solenoid

    If I am reading your comments correctly your unit does not have an auxiliary solenoid, correct? If so, you can find a new solenoid relatively cheap on eBay. Just search for "MEP-002A,MEP-003A,Kip Inc Solenoid Valve, Part # 6X323, 10 Watts, 24 Volts DC" and it should come up. I'm assuming the...

    MEP-002a service near Knoxville, TN

    I agree with Cbisson. From my vantage point it appears to be shaping up to be an "odd deal" that could go South on you no matter how nice the guy seems. If it were me... I would inform him there really are only 2 options: Option 1: I will pay $XXX dollars after its running and it has been...

    MEP-002a service near Knoxville, TN

    Ray is 100% right! Even if you were to locate a "qualified generator service person" unless he is very familiar with the MEP-002/-003a he could damage it by servicing and then attempting to start the unit not knowing the intricacies of these particular units...specifically as related to the...
