    Fuel storage and fuel transfer

    NG is an interuptable fuel source. ONLY if the genset has fuel stored on site, is it classified as a backup/emergency genset. That means diesel or LP.

    Who sell carb rebuild kits

    The threads on the 2AO16 all seem to have died years ago. Any substitution for the foam float found? Found this deadend on the foam float replacement.

    Just purchased an MTVR...

    Old thread that popped up when searching "463L" I was in 9ID Mtz in spring 86. Still the "Experimental Test Bed" and was receiving the 1st big batches of M966/M998. None had grill guard (or spare tires). Not a problem at Yakina but we were tearing the heck out of those huge expensive hoods...
