    Valence's M116A3 Mounted MEP-803A (10kw generator)

    The nuts on all of the shackles had been welded, surely to keep the shackles from "wandering off", but most of the welds look rusted/cracked through now or that they wouldn't hold up against an impact wrench. I spent a few hours last weekend cleaning off the many GovPlanet stickers. A heat...

    Valence's M116A3 Mounted MEP-803A (10kw generator)

    The trailer's tires were NEW. Maybe not the newest MTR style, but these do not have a blemish on them or sidewall crack and the nubs and writing still perfectly intact. Also, the trailer has the highly sought after 24-bolt wheels. It came with a decent loadout in the tool box: 3 copper...

    Valence's M116A3 Mounted MEP-803A (10kw generator)

    Well, I just purchased a second M116A3 mounted MEP-803A generator! This one directly from Gov Planet auction. It was refurbished in 2012 (vs the 2010 'reset' of the tan generator above) and has 703.4 hours. The Gov Planet listing said it had a bad starter and the oil pressure gauge was...

    Valence's M116A3 Mounted MEP-803A (10kw generator)

    Thanks guys for your input. Yeah, I will be in 120/240, because I'll use it as a whole home generator, but I need a bigger transfer switch now (I only have a 30A Generlink automatic transfer switch) :wink:

    Valence's 1990 Turtle Mountain M116A2 Power Plant AN/MJQ-33

    Update: I haven't tried swapping the Hertz gauges yet, but I'm thinking there is actually nothing wrong with the gauge. I started up the front generator yesterday to show the generator to a friend and its Hertz gauge behaved the same. I let the generator run longer and the gauge started acting...

    Valence's 1990 Turtle Mountain M116A2 Power Plant AN/MJQ-33

    This rear generator has exhibited another problem which I believe is a grounding issue on the frequency (HERTZ) gauge. While running the gauge will appear pegged, or maxed out (above 65 Hz) even though you can hear the RPM change when you adjust the Throttle knob. In this video you can see the...

    Valence's 1990 Turtle Mountain M116A2 Power Plant AN/MJQ-33

    I noticed a fuel leak on the rear generator. It took me a while to get around to identifying and fixing the issue. It slowly leaked even while the generator was off. Running the generator made it easier to identify the source, then it was obvious to me how deteriorated the hose was. It was...

    Valence's M116A3 Mounted MEP-803A (10kw generator)

    That's a good point. I don't *have* to have the little vinyl cover with the draw strings there. Thanks! Edit: What was the previous purpose other than for the electrical power cord to pass through?

    Valence's M116A3 Mounted MEP-803A (10kw generator)

    I had hoped I could store the short "always connected" plug inside the acoustic housing but unfortunately these massive twist lock plugs are just a little too big. However, the cord section is long enough I think I can just put the plug under the generator skid and that'll protect it from most...

    Valence's M116A3 Mounted MEP-803A (10kw generator)

    I've built my own custom power connection cable for this generator. I'm sure it would have been cheaper to buy a pre-made cable (such as for an RV), but this way I was able to make it the way I wanted, such as I wanted to leave a short section always wired in place so I didn't have look up the...

    Valence's 1960 Pioneer Tool Trailer

    Sadly, I didn't really do anything with Mr. Pioneer Tool Trailer here. Priorities changed drastically in the last 3+ years with large property improvements and diversions of money to other goals. Then this winter I acquired too many trailers. I don’t want to be that guy to let a project rot...
