    24 Bolt torque specs?

    Do not just tighten the first nut to 85lb/ft, the pattern is not as important as pulling the two have together evenly, if done unevenly enough you will push the o ring out of its groove and it will leak, pay attention to how much stud is protruding out of the nuts as you go...

    Converting a MEP-831A to standard generator

    I am not sure what you mean by reverse engineering, it is very easy to remove the phase switch, wire the 12 wire gen for 120/240V single phase and replace the voltage regulator with an aftermarket unit, this gets rid of virtually everything that causes problems on the gen side of the 002-003

    MEP 831 FAQ for owners or potential buyers

    What a piece of JUNK!! even after you get all the controller issues fixed all you end up with is a generator you cannot run inside (as with all generators) and despite the fact it has a solar panel to charge the batteries you cannot leave it outside because the slightest amount of moisture and...

    Brought MEP-831A # 2 home, Controller issues

    OK I got #2 home today, filled it with oil, fuel, fixed the broken sediment bowl (replaced) and this one runs and generates but as SEEMS to be NORMAL it has controller issues, this one the "arm" will not rotate enough to contact the magnet, I am assuming someone messed with the pinch bolt that...

    24 bolt O rings that fit

    This is inconsistant with every procedure I have read, Teflon seals are cut that way but all the o ring kits say cut exactly at 90deg and use a bonding agent.

    What have you done to your HMMWV today/lately

    I put together the first of my 24 bolt wheels yesterday with a Trailworthy bead lock and new (2013 date code never mounted) BFG TA tire. So today I took it to the tire shop and it only took 1.5 OZ to balance, I am liking this combination so far!!!! Also looked pretty darn round on the balancing...
