    Are you looking for the books on the gen set, or the rowpu.

    What model and NSN? There are two, I think.

    I have one as well, when I got mine the genny motor was seized up with carbon/wetstacking. Here is the video of it starting.



    I have some parts available if needed.

    Iím not sure on the model it was just loaded into a container to be shipped. I have the manual for the 005. Looking for the operations manual on the water purification unit. I hope to have it here in about three weeks.
    I bought two addl mep 005s and a pair of freshly rebuilt white 298 24valve Diesel engines as well as another mep 002 and a pair of fresh rebuilt 002 engines.
    I run a pair of mep 002s 24/7/365. To power my small island hotel.
    I will use the 005s at night to power the hotel with ac units and the rowpu which will probably run two times a month for 24 hours to fill my water tanks.
    I will 2 002s in the day time
    The rowpu will be be a game changer for me as itís an island with no fresh water.

    Thatís great you got it running. Insane amount of smoke from the wet-stacking lol.

    Thanks so much on the parts offer. As soon as I get mine here I will let you know what all I need. I would like to buy spare pumps and the electric motors. Once I have mine up and running we will come to rely on it so want to get spares to keep here on site. It takes weeks to get stuff sent down from the states and clear customs here.

    Thanks for taking the time to post up the videos.

    Iím really fired up to get all three of my 005s running tip top also. Thanks again

    Your profile location is Florida.
    If you’re somewhere where Customs is involved and weeks for shipping arrivals then you need to update your location.

    Nothing was mentioned about citizenship.
    Doesn't matter.

    If you live in Florida, no action needed.
    If you live elsewhere, update profile as required by forum rules.
