    MEP 803a Engine Sludged Up

    Reset2 offers wisdom in a good suggestion where my sarcasm and attitude was no real help. His best point is well stated, if the owner/s did nothing in the past to help extend or protect the set, they will gag at really making meaningful repairs.. mm

    MEP 803a Engine Sludged Up

    I think my time and sanity is worth far more than pissing it away trying to deal with this literal mess, and the unknown still to be discovered. These are not rare someone with common sense needs to step up and say JUNK time, expand your vision, at 6800 hours the IP is at its useful life before...

    Schematic for 802A whole thing

    For me the easiest is the 2 schematics on the respective doors of the unit, every bit is there, as well the item legend. What I have done is removed the "plate" and cut out a matching oversize piece of campaign election yard sign and glued the plate onto one side of the coraplast yard sign...

    MEP-803A won't start

    REF: the MPU set up.. what every one has offerd is correct, however, the tip of the MPU should hit onto the top of a flywheel tooth when your setting this up, for that you might well have to use some tool of your choice to move a "tooth" into the center area of your target range. Most often a...

    Three phase / Single phase

    No not at all, shud be just fine... I guess my post was hard to follow,.. left in the 208 range ur fine. and ur 240 appliances are fine .. it's when you adjust the output for 240 or abouts that your 120 follows near on a linear response.. do this measure your set 120 voltage at the 208...

    "No Fuel" shutdown, has fuel

    It is sure sounding like one or so of the "floats" is stuck or maybe bad, bad id hard to do however. REMEMBER and I'm going from memory, each float is direction specific ^ v sketch it out when you pull the stick/stem out. Most often a stuck float is caused by residual fuel levels and inactivity...

    Three phase / Single phase

    Yes this can be used and safely, and has been suggested my words multiple small junk loads will help more than not. The CAUTION here is if you get anal and want 240 volts and not the 208 as normal, your 240 loads will work just fine, while your 120 loads will not be a worry for very long, first...

    No time like the present, I never waded in and understood this Quad winding scheme on these sets, what am i missing and what is the field winding that we cant fold in a old time or new model Basler regulator and just move away from the damn TRC anything. I have ranted before about sole source...

    MEP 802a Wiring Short

    I didn't share that long answer to scare cause any trepidation for you at all, my apology if i did, and the 300 and 400 series wire numbers from my experience seems directly related to or if the set uses CANbus and/or RS-485 control/diagnostic ability .. mac/mc

    MEP 802a Wiring Short

    "Do I even need the heater plug circuit to work" ?? No ! I think I'd just go ahead and skip it now... Seriously.. The wire size is identified on each individual wire.. EXAMPLE: 165A16 the wire size is told to us by the last 2 numbers, in the example its size 16 if for example it was...

    Load balancing on an MEP-805B

    What part of this am i missing, WHY do both of the 480 loads have to be one one set of output phases, ie. it seems to my reading in your example, you are for discussion, going to use L1 and L2 for BOTH loads.. Why not use the one load between phases's 1-2 and the second load between phases's...
