    MEP803A Wont Shut off

    Well I am only missing the left side of the fan shroud but in my mind the shroud assists in directing air flow across the radiator. In this enclosure its probably got nowhere else to go but I prefer to have an intact fan shroud.. As for the metal guards I am not overly concerned about them but...

    MEP803A Wont Shut off

    Ok Well simple fix.. I guess this is a good example of how sometimes taking a little break from a problem and going back with a fresh view is a good thing.. There are 2 screws on the front cover that set the travel of the start/stop lever. These are typically adjusted and safety wired together...

    MEP803A Wont Shut off

    I will try and keep this short but there is allot to explain.. I bought this set a month or so ago. It came in with the engine front cover off, the start/stop lever assy was missing, the number 1 injector pump missing. Without knowing any history I started by replacing this stuff with all new...

    My MEP803A permanent install

    I installed this flexible pipe section to my exhaust over the weekend and I was a bit surprised. I use to have a little rattle to the rain cap anytime the set was running. It wasn't bad but a little annoying. That is gone now so I guess it was well worth the $50 and 30 minutes of my time.. I put...

    MEP803A Lister Engine Build Number

    Daybreak, When I say fuel pump what I meant was the injector fuel pump. The ones that run on the camshaft, one per cylinder and create the high pressure for the injectors. guy, What is so common that they steal the start/stop levers? Do these parts have a high failure rate of some sort? Yes...

    Military MEP generator reset information

    IN ZED254s photo there is a blue MOV / Varistor between terminals 7 & 8. Is that part of this mod or is that standard equipment. I will need to check my 2 older units.. I have read about the quad fuse issue before but my main unit is pretty new and I believe it is factory equipped with the...

    MEP803A Lister Engine Build Number

    I don't think its DOD, They do their job with the TM. Everything for the most part has a source. I am sure Onan deliberately makes it difficult to find the correct parts and bypass them going directly to LP.. I do not have a local Onan dealer that I know of.. The correct Fuel pump was $300 from...

    MEP803A Lister Engine Build Number

    No I understood you but maybe I was not clear in my response.. The "ENGINE ASSY" is built by Lister Petter (Fan to Flywheel), Any parts of the engine will be available from LP and yes some of them are unique parts for Onan but they are still provided by LP, The enclosure, such things as throttle...

    MEP803A Lister Engine Build Number

    Hey Light in the dark, I did a bit more digging on this equation to figure the RPM vs number of poles and I think the 400hz set must run at 2000 RPM.. I Have never owned or operated a 400hz set and have no need or desire to. The equation I found is RPM x number of poles divided by 120 So in the...

    MEP803A Lister Engine Build Number

    Hmm. Then I have no idea what the build 71 is for BUT if I am correct it must have the Onan valve covers and uses the same fuel pumps so maybe Onan makes some other odd ball genset. Anyone know how to do the math on what RPM vs number of poles equates to what HZ? I think the 400 hz are 24 pole...

    MEP803A Lister Engine Build Number

    Ok Guys I think I have this narrowed down to Build 72. This is how I came to that conclusion.. Of all the builds I narrowed it to 4 possibilities based on the Fixed RPM of 1800 that are used in the 4 cylinder non turbo engine. Of those 4 builds the Build 71 and 72 are the only ones that use a...

    MEP803A Lister Engine Build Number

    Yes Daybreak, I have all the military TMs the issue is they show only Onan Part numbers so my local Lister dealer cant cross those over.. I don't know how much of this stuff Onan stocks here in the US and I don't have any local Onan dealers, It quite possible that Onan just buys their parts from...

    MEP803A Lister Engine Build Number

    Well I need all the throttle linkage parts 39 thru 45, These are the same for all models except the build 102 but the speeder spring which is #1, There are 8 different springs available from Lister. I am sure I can just buy this from Onan and be good but those throttle parts have to come from...
