There is an 803A generator head available on the big auction site.If one buys an MEP-803A only to find the generator head side not producing electricity, how easy is it to buy new parts as meeded, to include a whole new generator head if needed? Are the parts available?
these sets are being parted out on eBay pretty consistently, enough to where parts are very easy to find.If one buys an MEP-803A only to find the generator head side not producing electricity, how easy is it to buy new parts as meeded, to include a whole new generator head if needed?

I think everyone will agree, the likely hood of a total gen head failure is slim to none. Ive bought over 2,000 units (802a&803a) and have never seen a head failure. We've seen a couple of people on the site diagnose the rotating diodes being bad but that's it (easy fix). There are several large army surplus stores (Delks, Owls, etc) that part these units out if there is an issue with the engine so parts are out there. I would be more worried about the engine being seized due to water in the exhaust. Just my opinion.I don't own one yet. My question is how easy is it to get any parts that might be needed for the generator. Are take out parts and the occasional NOS surplus finds the only source? Or are the Onan parts readily available new from Onan or an Onan distributor?
