I am thinking about buying one of Uncle Sam's old diesel gensets and I found one for sale about 200 miles away. The guy claims not to know a whole about the genset he is selling, but he did say it is an Onan 10KW genset with a Deutz 2 cylinder air cooled diesel with 3000 hours, and it runs good. It is trailer mounted and the guy wants $1k for it.
Can any of you ID this unit?
What do you think?

Thanks,
C. D. Hunter

Mil 10kw diesel genset ( MEP-003A ) are 4 cylinders the one in your pic looks like a MEP-002A, 2 cylinder aircooled Onan/Cummins 5kw (7kw max) mil genset which you don't see many of.

Bill W - Thanks for the ID on the genset. Do you know if the Deutz diesel is a good engine and do you know what the life expectancy is of one of these units?
Is 3000 hours getting toward sunset or is it mid-day?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

A genset (short for "generator setup") is the term used for a self-contained and dedicated electrical generation system, usually portable or mounted on a vehicle such as a boat. A genset's dedicated task of generating electricity differentiates it from the peripheral functionality of a generator or alternator component of a propulsion motor.
