    Pioneer rack mounting spot

    Look in the TM. If there is a place to install it, the TM's will show you, and how.

    MEP-006A For sale in AZ, 60KW 3 Phase

    This is not a standard MEP-006A. It may have started out its life as one, but it has been highly modified. So if you buy it, beware that trouble shooting will no longer be with the Army TM's. Doesn't mean it wont work. Doesn't mean its a bad buy. Just means that it is no longer a 006A and all...

    mep004

    The power comes from the DC system. The gen set runs just fine without an alternator. Battery power, or even jumped off from another gen set. If the set starts, you have the initial excitation voltage at hand.

    mep004

    Have you downloaded the TM's? Your problem is probably in the S9-1 circuit or the Static Exciter. Initial excitation is done by the start switch. After the main gen lights off, the Static Exciter/volt Regulator takes over. You are getting initial excitation.

    Tracking a wire issue

    Who ever did the wire diagrams did an outstanding job! I attached a simple description of how the wires can be checked. From the pump to the Rear harnes connector, wire #654, output from the pump to the connector, Pin F. From the connector, pin F to the start switch, pin A. Where the wire...

    18KW Drash Generator Help

    occasionally trading parts won't get anybody in really hot water either. :cool: Thinking outside of the box is what we called it. This is allowed in the Military. There is even a way to record this kind of thing. I would not consider myself an expert on the military supply system, by any...

    18KW Drash Generator Help

    Tim, Part of the problem is this gen set is low density. That always causes problems. The Gov can not stock parts in every corner of the world, in hundreds of SSA's, for equipment numbered in the low hundreds, if that. Also, DRASH, and company's that make DRASH look alike's, use off the shelf...

    Looking for parts for a mep018a generator

    You do know that the fuel pump from a 017A will also fit? Have you tried looking in flebay? Have you tried looking up the part numbers and NSN's and plugging them into your browser?

    18KW Drash Generator Help

    I am no expert on DRASH. I avoided working on them when I could. So, I will try and explain how the system works. The sensor, or better said, Fuel Pressure Switch, is a warning, that the filters are dirty or getting to a condition that is close to being plugged up. The FPS had a spring loaded...
