    Hannay Reel - Trailer Mounted MEP-803A

    eh? Where did you find out about the Graywacke NATO connector? maybe my post. I know how they work. I was advising you how the NATO plug works. They are tight. They are suppose to be. Pay attention now. ;) Type W 4C 6 AWG simply coiled up.

    Hannay Reel - Trailer Mounted MEP-803A

    Howdy, Graywacke part# GEISLV-SR (tight fit, but it works) That is how the NATO slave port works. The center is sliced into 6-7 pieces which spread open when pushed on. AWG 4? that was a pretty penny. The Type W in AWG 6 is good to 87 amps. I have a 100ft of Type W AWG 6. :)

    MEP-803A No Crank

    Howdy, I believe that connection is double nutted. Look and feel around the bottom, you will probably find the nut which vibrated off. Either way, good job tracking it down. :cool:

    MEP 1030, 1040 Models, Running Parallel

    Howdy, I do know some of the advanced base camp operations have proper control boxes which auto start units when more demand is needed. Maybe with 2-3 MEP-1070's and some MEP-1060's. But the camp micro-grid has lots more controlling pieces for it all to work. You need 2 x MEP-1040 to really be...

    Generator purchase advice

    Howdy, I am surprised Guy left out why the 004 and 005 are special. The genhead is a 12 wire unit. Because it can be re-wired to single phase. The MEP-804 and higher all have 10 wire units. You can't reconfigure to single phase.

    Mep 803a rebuild

    Howdy, Slow down a minute. What kind of soak? How long of a soak? Many members here have found ways. Give it some time. Some have left ATF in the cylinders for days. ATF fluid? Have you drained the oil? What was the oil like? was it oil? was it milkshake? was it water? Take the simple approach...

    MEP 802A Aux fuel tank option

    Howdy, Proper usage, inspection, and testing a tank so you do not have problems. Condensation water is a problem. A free standing tank has numerous access ports. As having a WATER drain at the bottom for draining off water. The same reason the water/fuel filter has a drain at the bottom for...
