My MEP-802A had a blue S1 that would hang in the start position so I started looking for a replacement. I found another blue one on the auction site for $90 and passed. I sent an email to Electroswitch: I wanted the NSN 5930-01-531-2976, Model 75902LV version. The folks at Electroswitch indicated that this is an active model and could be purchased. The quote I received looked like this.
Below is our quotation for this Series 31 Control, 75902LV. If you wish to order this control, please complete the attached credit card form, .......... Pricing does not include shipping.


75902LV
Qty: 1-4
Price = $97.45 each
Lead Time = 3-4 Weeks
Non-cancelable, non-returnable.
Quote is valid 30 Days, F.O.B. Weymouth, MA........


My inquiry started with a note to info@electroswitch.com. Include your address because they forward your inquiry to the Sales Person responsible for your geographic region: mine is East Coast.

Is your rotary switch 75902LV available? It is a Series 31 switch used in military generator sets as the Master Switch.

Thanks,
Bls


Pdf is the Electroswitch drawing, images show old and new switches, and the installed unit. The several Electroswitch people I interacted with were very helpful and made the purchase quite easy.....as long as you can stomach the cost. I wanted an OEM 75902LV and am quite happy with my purchase. Note the diode is not included with the switch - I reused the one that was on my blue switch.

Hope this info helps others with the dreaded blue switches.....

Zed,
I found the same switch on eBay and I tried to install it over the weekend. I placed all terminals from the previous switch on the corresponding numbered lugs of the Electro switch. I got nothing. Is there any chance you have a wiring diagram for the new switch?

Hope you all are well.

Thank you both. I'll let you know how it goes. I had to pay $220 for my switch but the last one busted off.
Howdy,
The switches can be gotten straight from the company Electroswitch for less. This very thread post at the top

At least this info was valid back in February, when I had inquired with them. The whole corona thing put my order on hold.

If memory serves, these new switches from Electroswitch require you to reuse the little jumper cable thats included on your factory builds, to the new one. They do not come with a new replacement.

Exactly correct. I bought 2 of these in February. Same price as LITD quoted and 3-4 weeks lead time.

So FYI to everyone... the baseline price has gone up.

Qty 1-9 is now $219.70/ea
Qty 10 is $91.97/ea

So it would behoove rebuilders (and regular owners alike) to get into some sort of bulk buy in the future.
I'd be in for 3 if someone with the purchasing info wants to start a group buy on them. I'll pre pay funds including shipping.

I'd love to get in on it, but I had placed an order for 2 (they held the old pricing for me... so I basically got one 'for free') just before I shared the info with you all. I hope more want to take advantage of it.
