    I have purchased a cd which, among other things, contains the TMs for the MEP-002 and MEP-003 gensets. I *believe* that these publications are in the public domain. Should I upload them? If so, how? Thanks Peyton

    genset propane conversion anyone?

    Has anyone done or looked into converting one of the small mil std gas engines (4a032, 2a042, etc) to run on propane or natural gas? I don't know if fuel costs would go up or down but there are some advantages: no fuel deterioration, safer storage, larger tanks ,etc.

    3kw gas genset carb questions
