    Mep 016c from GSA

    Picked this one up from Arkansas Forestry today. At least this one is a 60 herz set, last time i bought a 400 hz set, runs great but about worthless. This one is all there except fuel tank and starter. Looks like it developed issues and they robbed it. Still a good deal for 50 bucks, plenty of...

    Mep 016A still kicking

    I bought this one on GL several years ago, all I had to do was clean the carb and change the oil and she has been a reliable runner ever since, it had about 200 hours on it when I got it, now showing about 259. Haven't really used it much last couple of years, so I got it out today to do a...

    New m116A1 generator trailer

    I bought this one off GSA last month and warthog picked it up for me. It was fairly cheap but a little on the rough side. My plan is to put my newly aquired mep-002a on this one. It is dated 1973 and looks like it had 2 mep-017's on it and a distribution box on right rear, unfortuatley thats...

    Bought a mep-002

    Bought this one off GSA today, will try to pick it up Friday. It looks complete and has about 650 hours on it. Fingers crossed, reading all the TM's prior to pickup. It looks like it has been stored inside for a while, thats a plus!

    New mep-016c

    Got this from gsa, showing 334 hours, looks to be in great shape. It still had clean oil in it and some funky gas, fired it off with some ether and it ran and made power! This one should be easy to get going.

    New to me mep-018a

    I picked up this genny in a trade deal, so I don't have much in it. I have been reading all the old threads here on the 18 and have learned a lot already. Just one question for other 18 owners, for now. Looks like the Army was running 15/40 in it when last in service, is this a good choice for...

    Picked this up from GSA yesterday, a little ether and she pops! Cleaning the fuel tank right now while waiting for a new fuel pump from Saturn. Not good for a lot but I got it cheap, it would be good for camping.
