    Does this test procedure work step by step for the MEP016B (or 701A)?

    also where is the mep016b wiki? I looked but can't find it...sorry if it's staring me in the face. I found some for the 002 and 003 but not the 16b

    I have 25.75 AC on the 2 stator wires. This is on a crate engine I just bought . So would you consider that a bad stator?

    Probably not. This is a permanent magnet type of stator. Pull the blower wheel off and clean any paint and crud off of the magnets and from around the stator and then try it again and see if that doesn't help your voltage increase.

    My stator on my 016B was only putting out 17 volts AC. I decided to add an external charger and run it off the 110 ac. The chargers I got were 12 volt and are automatic and will change to a trickle charge when the battery is up to charge. They were walmart returns I got from a salvage place for $10 each. I figured I'd wire then so you can plug it into wall current for maintenance.

    Does anyone have a line on a working used regulator for an 003?

    People want stupid money for used regulators. You can buy one from TripleJim for just a little more and never have to worry about it again.

    I know it, me too. I bought one from green mountain for $100 thinking it was new because it was so expensive, after I received it found out it was used. Sent it back and bought Triple Jim's for $149. I've also used the weather proof 110volt 24volt chargers that I would plug into the outlet on the genset. I like it but they don't last long with all the vibration. They claim to be weather and vibration proof proof but after sitting in the sun for about a year they erode.

    I know this is old. My MEP-003a has 24v DC at the red banded regulator wire with the set off. It also has the same voltage with the set on. The two leads coming from the stator read 22.52v AC between them with the set running. I pulled the blower wheel and cleaned the stator with brake cleaner and I wire brushed the magnet inside the wheel and wiped it clean afterwards. No change in AC voltage coming from the stator. Does this mean I need a new stator?
