    It makes a lot of sense to move non generator stuff to a new thread and then rename the remaining info as generator only. There are offers of assistance from 3 of the most knowledgeable contributors on the site. I'm sure they would have no problem deciding the best way to do it.

    Also I don't want to muddy the waters but once some help is accepted would it be too much to get a 'Sticky" for MEP-802A MEP-803A Filters and Parts???

    I will consider creating a new section. But I just am reluctant due to the history behind the CUCV/Deuce/5 ton sub forums. It always turns into people complaining about things not being where they're supposed to be.

    I could grant moderator access to people that have offered for this new area.

    I do not know of the past problems that have been encountered in the CUCV/Deuce/5 ton sub forums so I cannot comment on that issue but that might be a good start.

    Anything that would lead to consolidation of information on different sets and issues would be an improvement.

    Having read through the many pages of the auxilary section, I've found the participants to be most helpful and courteous. I think that a separate generator sub forum would greatly benefit both the veterans of this forum and new comers who are seeking information to troubleshoot and repair their gensets.

    Most of the common problems and solutions found concerning these various sets seem to have been addressed at one time or another throughout the pages, however it sometimes becomes quite the tedious search to sift through and find.

    Like having a huge container with all the issues thrown in and no drawers or folders to separate things out for easy access.

    I too would like to see a separate generator sub forum where info could be sorted out by model/size/issue/solution/parts etc.

    Respectfully,
    Farmitall

    This is one "issue" that arises. Further splintering. The other one is the arguments/debates about what belongs where.


    Now on the absolute flip side of this, I deal with new users daily that either have no clue how to start a thread, find the appropriate forum for a thread, or place threads in the completely wrong forum. (To the point that I have a "canned" email explaining things)

    I would think that this forum becoming generator exclusive and a non-generator subforum would be the easiest division of this section. Understand though, that will have the need for those who have offered help to review threads one by one to find the "not generator" content.
