    Default Hello everyone from Illinois!

    My name is Mike and I am a new member here. I have always had a fascination with military equipment (someday will have a 5-ton) so various searches always lead me to this forum. I recently acquired a mep-002a generator and I have some ideas for it so I am sure I will be posting questions here, so I finally created an account.

    Nice to meet you all!

    Welcome from California. Nice acquisition on a generator.
    O Lord, won't you buy me a diesel Humvee. My friends all drive Teslas, that won't work for me. Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from the DMV. So Lord, won't you buy me a diesel Humvee.

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys.

    cucvmule... It is not running yet, but should be soon. I bought it about 2 weeks ago from a guy that knew absolutely nothing about it except that it had been stored for at least the last 11 years. It looked pretty complete so I figured it was worth the $275 gamble. I cleaned up the outside a little, cleaned out fuel tank and lines thoroughly, replaced oil and all filters, and put 2 batteries in it but no start. The IP was locked up so I am waiting on parts from gmg (took over a week after my order for them to even ship them... was getting a little annoyed) but they should be here in a couple days and hopefully it will run before the weekend. The more I look this thing over the more pleased I am. So far everything (except ip) that I have been able to test works. It has about 2300 hours. The only thing that concerns me a little, and it could be my imagination, is that when rotating engine by hand one cylinder seems to have a bit better compression going by the "calibrated elbow" technique. Maybe the rings need to free up a bit and running for a while will help? I'm not sure but I'm not overly concerned to be honest.

    Mike
