    MEP-026 genset float solution?

    My MEP-016A has a brass float. all the Carbs that came on my 1a08 & 2a016 engines are foam. I've had good luck coating them with model airplane dope (getting very hard to find) and did try one in REDKOTE, but i have yet to install it and see if it works.

    4a032 rod length

    Now that it's warmed up, I can probably get to the shed where my spares are and measure one later this week.

    MEP-015a Carburetor help

    these carbs were considered a "toss" item. (it's the same carb as the MEP-016a/c) as it was used on all of the 1A08 / 2A016 and 4A032 engines. Most of the floatsd are foam and can be coated with model airplane dope or RedKote, to help seal them against swelling from the modern gas.

    4a032 12 volt starters

    That carb is for the 2a042 & 4a084 engines, not the 1a08/2a016/4a032 family.......

    MEP-016a Issues - Manual no help.

    I finally got around to messing with the MEP-016a I bought like 8 years ago. She started after a bit of work (a cobbled fuel source because of a rotten line), She runs and generates power (at least from the convenience outlets) Issues: "Kill" switch is wired backwards or rotated 180 degrees...

    M88A2 Hercules APU

    M60 series... not the M1 series chassis............. Considering they've been in service since 1961............. The M88a1E! & M88A2 are upgrades to handle the M1 series..... but it's still the same Chassis.

    How have you civilized your MEP Generators?

    Does a propane conversion to my MEP-016A (soon to be a C) count??? That's about all I've done so far.
