    MEP-002a hard to crank then does not run right

    Yes, I think y'all are right, it should be worth fixing if no damage to piston or cylinder. I just figured it would be a good idea to get it up and running before hurricane season and it would not hurt to have a spare sitting around anyway. A gasket set and rings will cost nearly as much as I...

    MEP-002a hard to crank then does not run right

    Well, I have never had any luck with any type of fluid fixing anything, and this is no exception. I wanted to try the SeaFoam straight into the IP, but even if I filled the downstream filter with it, most of it would be returned to the tank with only a little bit going to the IP. So I...

    MEP-002a hard to crank then does not run right

    Thank you all. I'll start with compression and valve clearances. I had thought about a ring also, but can't figure out why it runs differently through its cycle then dies and won't start back up. Another thing I thought of a little while ago is the possibility of dirt daubers clogging the...

    Thanks for the reply. Is there a way to check injectors and pump without a lot of test equipment? Pat

    MEP-002a hard to crank then does not run right

    We had some warm weather this weekend so I worked on it a little more. I cleaned the entire fuel system, flushed it and put in fresh new diesel. There was no water, dirt or bad diesel anywhere in the system, everything looked polished. I also checked the check valve and it is working as it...

    I know you are right. The way to really abuse these machines is to neglect them. Thanks to all for the advice. I wish I could work on it right now, but the short days make it tough. .......and the bass are biting at the duck camp. I'll report back as soon as I can get to it.

    Great idea. I will do that, thanks. It will be a few days before I can get back on it, but I will post a follow-up when I do.

    Oh, I forgot to mention, I have checked the electric pumps and both are working.

    MEP-002a hard to crank then does not run right

    Thank you for the reply. I don't use them often, but I run them every couple of months and change the fuel, flush the lines and clean the separator and filters once a year. I have never put anything in the tank except diesel. What kind of fluid would I use to clean the fuel system? I can...
