    804A with ~52hz and AC undervolt?

    I looked up a part number in one of many pdf files. Below is what I found. I think Green mountain has available but back ordered. Pricey. Switch and Knob Master 88-21160 does this part number make sense?

    804A with ~52hz and AC undervolt?

    Our 804A likes to start and stall with under-voltage light then immediately re-start and run. But one of the guys twisted the Main Knob off the switch! He did McGuyver it. Need a new one.

    MEP-804A 24V Alternator no output and RPM Dropouts While Running

    Thanks again. I found it in the Technical Manual on a conversion update to circuit breaker. Now when I go back out I know where this is to look. I can also make sure the 60HZ is selected. I also see that the ammeter uses a real shunt. So I can double check the panel meter on the front...

    Thanks. The Convenience Plug in front needs to be made to work again too. Maybe the fuse. And the fuel gage. With the TMs and you guys helping we can fix her up. Thanks

    Yes thanks I have downloaded TMs. Lots to read. But I'm so thankful that information is available. Lots of old stuff to keep running out there. Thank You!

    Thanks but not quite that easy. It's a 4-hour drive for me to northern Michigan. Then load and prep the boat. One to two hour boat ride to the lighthouse where the generator is.

    The engine sounds like it studders and or loses power. The frequency meter will drop way back and or pin to the left under 50 Hz. Sometimes it is a very brief "burble" with quick recovery. Other times several seconds prompting me to want to shut it down. It sounds like it slows down very...

    That's us! This generator is our main workhorse until a serious set of solar and big 220V inverter can be installed.

    No. White Shoal. Stannard Rock is even farther from inhabited land than we are. There are uninhabited islands within 10 miles of us.

    Hi folks, new here but have been running an 804A on a 20-mile Off-Shore lighthouse restoration job. Our donated 804A alternator has given up the ghost. Been using two 12V chargers to keep batteries up but need alternator. hopefully these photos help identify what brand this is. Searches for...

    mep 804a

    Hi folks new here. We have an 804A and a 303A out at an off-shore lighthouse recently purchased from the government at auction. Hauled them up manually by chain fall. We are getting to know it. I see on other units and on this that the muffler has a male pipe type thread. We are wanting to...
