In my case I think I removed a #12 and installed a #14 if I recall correctly.
I think I had to step up 2 sizes.
I have lots of buttons, but have used up most of the thicker ones.
I would need to see what size you need. I don't think I have anything thicker than #12 or #13 left in my pile!
The timing buttons are available on the internet. I also have a variety of them in my stash, but be forewarned, the thicker buttons are most commonly the needed ones ( #14 15 and 16 ) and of course these are the hardest to find and most expensive.
The procedure to test is laid out in the TM and...
Well, try reading this post.
I still can't explain why, but I have an ultra low ( 6 ) hour 003, completely untouched since new and had the exact same symptoms as you.
I tried everything! testing compression, lapping...
Has this machine always run like this? Or did you ever see it behave "Normally"?
As for the parts, you can get the updated head gaskets direct from Cummins for about $15 ea.

If you need a valve, also look around on the internet, but do not search under "Mep-003 valve"...
Something else you may want to consider when finalizing your design:
I recently serviced an 002 that I sold to a customer 6 or 8 years ago. He had put it on a Pre-made cart he had found at a yard sale.
The cart was designed to move pipe / conduit around in a warehouse and it was exactly the...
I agree with Scoobyshep. I don't trust that alternator setup, but maybe it's just because I'm not familiar with it.
Aftermarket AVR's can be had cheap.
That SX460 is still available ( Chinese knock off ) for $20 all over the internet.
You could probably buy 4 or 5 of them for less than the Delco...
Sounds like you have already decided what you want to do for control system, but if things change, I wonder if this gen would be a good candidate for an SX-460 AVR?
I've used them a few times on different military gens and they have worked well every time.
Agree with Guy, dismantle the gen head and report what you find, that should easily allow us to determine what went wrong.
Either way it's a mechanical gen failure, nothing caused by you.... although you really should have a full understanding of the machine, how to operate it and how to prep it...
See reply #5, the only breaker on the entire DC side is on the front panel and kills EVERYTHING.
So if your panel lights work, the breaker has not popped.
Check for 24V at the cannon plug for the pumps.
Do you hear any of the pumps in either aux. fuel or prime/run position?
You have 3 pumps in...
