    Hello guys, I have a question regarding an MEP-003A that I'm working on. It is a machine with 6 original hours on it, has been sitting a very long time.

    MEP-802/3A Vs 002/003A Frequency gage / Transducer operation

    Hello everyone, I tried looking to see if this has been discussed before, but didn't find anything so.... I'm wondering if anyone knows if the operation of the frequency transducer and gage is the same between the 802/3 and 002/3? Yesterday I picked up a really nice trailer mounted 002A...

    Any interest in Compression tester adapters for the MEP-802A and 803A?

    Hello guys, I was wondering if I could your feedback as to if any of you working on the DN2M DN4M LPW2 LPW4 motors would have any interest in a compression gage adapter for these motors?

    MEP-803A cranking cylinder pressure

    Hello everyone, I was wondering if anyone here knows what the typical cylinder cranking pressure should be on a typical LPW2 or LPW4 motor? I've been working on several of these and I'm finding some at about 250psi and some closer to 200-220 psi. From reading, these motors are supposed to be...

    MEP-803A Pegs fuel gage all the way down past empty.

    I just got done fixing one of my MEP-803A's that was randomly pegging the fuel gauge all the way to the left. It was pegged down when I bought it, so I swapped in a known good gage out of another 803' and it seemed fine. I load tested the machine for about an hour, then shut it down. Next time I...

    My latest MEP-003A acquisition

    Thought I'd share a little story ( with a happy ending for a change ) about my recent GL purchase of another MEP-003A. I previously had a total of 6 MEP generators, got them all fixed up and tested and sold them all, so I was starting to have Green Machine withdrawl symptoms and needed to buy...

Its been months since he bought it and of course someone pilfered his headlights and retaining rings before his EUC cleared.

    MEP-003A percent load meter reading very low

    I recently got my first -003A machine and got it up and running. It runs good and produces a boat load of power, my problem is that the ammeter is reading very low. Probably in the neighborhood of 25% of the actual load. When I put a 9000W load on it the gauge is reading in the 25% load area. I...

    2 Cyl. MEP-002A motor on a Log splitter

    So, in an attempt to not hijack another thread that mentioned building a log splitter using the motor from a MEP-003A.... I have a home made log splitter that I've been thinking about repowering with the 2 cyl. motor off an MEP-002A and I'm interested in seeing if any members here have any...

    MEP-002A Voltage goes high after a minute

    I'm sure many of you have read lots of threads about machines with the output voltage going high:deadhorse:, but this one might have a little different spin to it. When I first got this machine I noticed an intermittent high voltage problem. After inspecting the VR board visually I noticed that...

    MEP-004AAS Scrap!

    Ok guys, I can no longer find this auction in my watchlist or in my closed watch list for that matter, so I assume it is over and now safe to discuss... Did anyone see the lot of MEP-004's that were being auctioned off for scrap?? Seems like a gigantic shame that these things had to be destroyed...

    MEP-002A are all Control cubicles interchangeable?

    Hello everyone, I'm brand new to posting here, although I've been reading articles and learning a lot for a few months. So cut me some slack if I mess anything up due to my inexperience! Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knows of any interchangeability problems between Libby Corp. and J.R...
