    MEP-1040 received, recommended first steps

    Another 806B acting funny.

    Looks like the usual bad avr problem to me. I had one that did the exact same voltage fluctuations under load a few weeks back till the avr died. Swapped and fixed it. If no stock avr is available, you can use an aftermarket avr and it will work.

    MEP-802A No Response to Control Panel Functions Including Start Switch

    Muffler issues

    Muffler issues

    Muffler issues

    Howdy gang! Got an issue with an mep 007b. The gasket that holds the muffler in place and stops it from rattling is gone. I found the gasket (71-4396) in the manual but its no where to be found online. Anyone have an idea on how to keep it centered?

    Inflation and MEP replacement parts

    Post that on Facebook and the so called fact checkers will call it misinformation and ban it. They will say its missing context and claim the kids were looking for diamonds and the genny is not running. :)
