    MEP-803A smoking under load.

    I was under the impression that these were made for 10KW. It wouldn’t even know it was there? Dang brother those are some hard core chewing sets you been working around. How many KW do you suggest running continuously?

    Need help with mep802

    Is there power at the controls at all? I think your emergency stop might be pushed in. Best to check the simple things first.

    Gasket maker is something everyone should have in their tool box, but I only use it when i can’t get factory made gaskets. Also the gasket maker is only as good as the person applying it. Do you mind if a ask what the plans are for this set?

    If that stuff doesn’t dissolve easy, I would think the motor needs to be rebuilt if you expect it to be reliable. I would try to get it to dissolve without scrubbing that way you know the other areas You can’t scrub or see are dissolving as well.

    MEP-803 install with automatic transfer & remote monitoring

    You can move it over a bit with a 2byfour as a lever. That’s how I place these the final few feet. Just don’t put pressure on any of the weak points underneath.

    MEP-803A won't start
