    Need a 803a engine

    I I don't recommend them at all. What I received from them was not what was promised. The photos they sent were not of the engine I received even though they said it was. Parts had been recently removed. I paid way too much for what I got.

    I'd replace the factory one with a "wet locations" GFCI.

    MEP-802A/803A S1 Master Switch Source - Electroswitch

    That is correct. It is a bare switch.

    MEP-802A/803A S1 Master Switch Source - Electroswitch

    I did order a switch last year to replace a broken one. I would order from Electroswitch.

    Three phase / Single phase

    I would recommend a generator of the right type and size to do the job. Paralleling two 804s then using them as single phase is not optimal. If you go with the advised derating you will be around 16kw continuous out of two generators. I'm sure you can find a civilian generator in the 20kw...

    Stuck Voltage Reconnection Switch on MEP-803A

    Before you do anything else get the top off of it and inspect the entire area behind that switch. A missing knob and screws are big red flags. Also the quad fuse is a modification that was performed later to protect the exciter windings from damage in case the voltage regulator fails. Later...

    MEP preparedness

    I got about 50lbs of rice in the house and a yard full of MEPs. We should be good. The rice has nothing to do with the current viral situation though. Its just evidence that I'm married to a Chinese woman. :D

    003a conversion to sx460 avr

    You can upgrade to the aftermarket VR that is made by one of the members here. That would be the a simpler solution that would also increase reliability.

    Main start switch dead Mep-802

    Time to break out the volt meter and start looking for the location of the breakdown. The schematic has the terminal info for S1. You can see if you have voltage coming in and if not trace back through the wiring till you find the problem. Edit - For some reason I didn't see the replies on P2...

    MEP 831A Fix-up Thread

    Well... I've noticed on a few units that this is the first symptoms of the speed controller failing. As a test you can try to adjust the tuning pots on the controller and see if that does anything. I had one go down that road and the speed control became more and more erratic until it would...

    MEP-831A Overvoltage

    No throttle cable on these. The throttle is servo controlled. Also the output power is via an inverter so not directly connected to the alternator. If the voltage is going up and down with engine RPM its either a bad inverter, bad voltage pot, or wiring problem between them.

    MEP-831A Overvoltage

    Has the unit operated correctly in the past and this is a new problem? Have you traced out the wires between the voltage POT and the inverter?
