No loadHave a low hour 10 k MEP-803A generator.
located south of Dallas. In need of someone who can work on mine.
it runs and puts out, but won’t run at a steady Rpm.
Thanks for that.Mark everything before trying to adjust. If the "adjustment" is not helping, put it back where it was. Also know that the fuel shutoff and its connections, if they are loose, or mal adjusted, will give you that fault.

What have you done to diagnose the issue, anything? Does it only display this under load, or just while running unloaded?
Whens the last time you did a filter change on this machine? Does it have the inline strainer just south of the inlet on the primary pump? I was once chasing what I thought was a droop concern... turns out that stupid little filter was the cause!

Have not adjusted the frequency.OK, now I found it! In this thread you are having problems with the engine running. I read through this thread several times. Did you follow Kurts suggestions in message #5? And a video would help. If we can see/hear it start to bog down, we may have a better clue.
had another go at it.Oh, forgot to mention, I drove through Kerens last time I was in the states. My family was in Wills Point. I took my wife on a ride over to Ft. Hood. We passed though Canton, as my wife had never been to First Monday. Then down to Athens and over toward Corsicana and then to Hood to see an old retired buddy of mine. Nice ride, great time. Wonderful country.
Get a hose and a bucket. Put diesel in the bucket. Unhook the input side of the E2, (primary electric fuel pump. I would even take the E2 off, so I could look into the E2 opening, to loo for trash. Is there a tiny filter screwed into the E2? If so, I would replace it if there is. Its not an expensive part. But the will remove it from the equation. Then remount the E2. Hook the hose up to the inlet fitting. Then start the set. How long will it run?had another go at it.
unplugged the A2 fault indicator or the malfunction indicator as described on the schematic.
thought we had a chance for awhile. Took 15 minuet’s to begin drooping. Temp never exceeded 180 degrees.
oil never went below 42 psi. When the drooping became excessive I shut her down.
fuel pump not hot. Water and oil levels are correct. Temp did not rise after shutdown. No drips or leaks.
it will now start back up after shutdown with or without the a2 plugged in. It resumes the droop where it left off.
once cool it will start and run normal for 10 to 15 min.
I’m sure it is fuel related.
my mail lady is from Germany. My grandson just returned from there two weeks ago.
I have a daf ya 126 that I’m getting ready to start on next year.
not to many of those here in the states.
