    Well when it rains it pours, literally, we have a Cat 4 Hurricane on the way scheduled to be here in the overnight hours, and now my MEP-002a will not start. It ran fine when I last started it a few months ago, now it is not getting fuel to the injector pump. I have a spare new in the box...

    MEP 003a engine replacement

    Well It looks like I am having a blowby problem on my MEP-003a, and am debating if it is economical to try to salvage it, or if I should look for one of those rebuilt engines that seemed to be everywhere a year or two ago, but seem to have all disappeared now. Any suggestions with the cost of...

    Its cold outside lets talk Heaters, H81, H82, H83, etc.

    I own an H82, bought from GL last January, and overall it seems to work well for my shop heating needs, but I was wondering a bit about the differences between these three models and what light you might shed on their history. I know they are all very similar, and were all build by Engineered...

    MEP owners slave port survey?

    Which style slave cable port do your generators have? I have both types on mine with no apparent scheme: MEP701a - 2 pin MEP-016D - 1 pin MEP-003a - 2 pin MEP-002a - 1 pin (looks retrofitted at a 45 degree angle in the 2 pin mounting bracket)

    Salvaging an EUC item?

    There is an EUC item coming up for sale on GL that I am thinking about bidding on for the purpose of parting out. It has been a few years since my last EUC purchase, and I am wondering if the paperwork process is any different for items to be parted out? Or when filling out paperwork should I...

    MEP-002a / 003a Owner survey?

    I was wondering if your generator has a sheet metal trough under the oil filter canister? I ask because it seems most photos online show them, however my MEP-003a does not have one, and my MEP-002a does. I assume it was a feature that was added at some point to help catch the oil that would...

    Couple of H82 heater Questions

    I just picked up the H82 heater I won from GL last week, it is nearly identical to the Army H83 only real difference is the plug and the soft start assembly. Anyway, I picked it up, put some diesel in it and it seems to fire up and run. The hour meter shows only 2 hours of run time, I don't...

    MEP-002a / 003a glow plug compression adapter?

    Does anyone know of a source for a glow plug compression test adapter for the MEP-002a / 003a generators? These glow plugs are threaded 7/16x20 unlike most glow plugs which have metric threads. I have seen mention that one of the members here was making these, but I don't know who or if they...

    MEP-002a Style 1 vs 2 Starter

    I was just wondering does the Style 1 Starter found on some MEP-002a and MEP-003a generators have any advantage over the Style 2 starters? I know the Style 2 draw less amps when starting. Ike

    MEP-003a while the shroud is off?

    I had to pull the fan shroud off of my MEP-003a in order to change out 2 of my diesel injectors. The two cylinders on the end closest to the blower were very slow to fire after starting on the other two (5-10 seconds), and would blow white smoke for a couple of minutes, changing out the...

    Need T2 for MEP-003a

    Well today I found the source of the voltage control problems on my new to me MEP-003a, it seems someone wired T2 up backwards with the X1/X2 wires goes to H1/H2, and vice versa. This seems to be a simple enough step down transformer, but I can't find any specs online, so I am therefore asking...

    MEP-003a CVT1 markings?

    I am trouble shooting a voltage regulation problem (voltage going high, regulator good, no output showing on panel meters) on my MEP-003a and have now reached the point of testing CVT1 per the TM. The instructions in the TM say to measure resistance between H1-H2, H3-H4, H5-H6, and between...

    Whats the deal on EUC's and trailers?

    I know the rules were changed for no EUC required for generators mounted on trailers a while back, but I was wondering if / what are the other circumstances where GL trailers are being sold without showing an EUC requirement. I have noticed several lots of trailers sold around here over the...

    Filters found on surplus generators?

    I don't think this topic has came up before, so I thought I would ask what type of filters (oil,fuel,air) have you found installed on the generators you have bought from GL, GSA auctions etc. For me my MEP-701a came with a WIX oil filter (#5335 I think, also had had written sticker on the...

    Bad Military Surplus Generator Advice Online

    I started looking around last night using google to find advice on buying military surplus generators and was shocked to see so much bad advice and misinformation out there on a variety of message boards ranging from the wacko survivalist boards, gun owner boards, to home owner groups. (this is...
