    Converting a MEP-831A to standard generator

    Yes. Northern Tool dropped the one that was popular. A place replacement heads can be purchased from is Mecc Alte I've installed them and they are 99.9% the same as the Norther Tool one. Just a bit shorter in length which makes installation a touch easier. Here is the model that I've used when...

    MEP-003A , MEP-004A, MEP-005A, MEP-006A Replacement A4 & A5 Card Interest

    New design but no "mad new tech" :LOL: They are very basic cards. Relays, resistors and diodes. Would use newer style higher current replaceable relays used on other military gensets and other components readily available now. Also designed with much larger traces on the PCB to eliminate the...

    Converting a MEP-831A to standard generator

    Forgot to put that in. $180 shipped. Cost in higher than the SLC-100 replacement I sell due to the additional parts costs and wire harness for the 60 Hz version.

    If you don't find the cap you can easily replace the fuse holder with a new commonly available one from many parts suppliers. A real good hardware store may have one. Needs to be rated for 30 amps 250 volts minimum.

    MEP-803A Repair Assistance

    As Ray mentioned it need a simply droop adjustment to the governor. Just requires a 5mm hex key at least 5 inches long. The RPM hunting can be caused by that adjustment being incorrect. The -24 TM explains how to adjust it. Basically remove a pipe plug to access the adjustment, use the 5mm...

    Be sure you are on CR1. The labelling on that assembly in the back left can be deceiving.

    Fermont MEP-804A Dies after releasing start switch.

    What color is the back of the S1 switch? Is is square or round? Do you have a hand held voltmeter handy? If so we'll need to take a series of voltage walk to see where you are losing the 24 volts when you release S1. With the meter set to DC volts and it's negative lead connected to chassis...
