    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...

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

    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...

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

    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.

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

    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...

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

    I bought my 002A's about 5 years ago with about 3 hours on them. They had been reset by the Letterkenny Army depot. They have served me well since then and I now have about 25 hours on them. The one that I am having trouble with has always liked the throttle at idle speed when cranking...

    The beast died after hitting a bump!!

    When the starter wouldn't work that seems to indicate a battery connection issue. Were your lights and gauges working?

    923a2 Oil Leak from Behind Timing Cover

    Thanks for all of the great information. I figured I would just try retorquing the cover bolts and see what happens. Some of the bolts were a little loose. The leak slowed dramatically. After studying the photos and diagrams, it looks like of you take the cover off you can get to most of the...

    923a2 Oil Leak from Behind Timing Cover

    Thanks a bunch for the reply. No matter how much you study something it is always good to actually hear from someone that has done it before. So I have a couple of questions if you don't mind. 1. I would assume that the injector pump gear also has a timing mark on it? And can I leave the...

    923a2 Oil Leak from Behind Timing Cover

    I have an oil leak that looks like it is coming from the rear of the timing cover where it bolts to the block. I checked the bolts on the front of the cover and a couple were a little loose, but can't get to the other bolts without taking the front cover off. Has anyone replaced the gasket...
