    No one escapes PM

    I've found the Gates replacement line to be more than sufficient in all units I've sold. I just finished doing all lines on an 802 headed to a chap in Maine, might as well do mine with the same materials while I still have it all out.

    Well its been windy as hell here tonight, lights went out 20 minutes ago. Just over 1200 people in the state without power... all in my town. 802 fired over like a champ..... return lines leaking right at the end of the rigid line :cautious:. My machine only has 60 or so original hours on it...

    Obscure question, MEP-831A

    Edit... I thought you were talking about an 803, sorry. Nevermind.

    Questions MEP803a

    I don't recall the #s I've used in these machines offhand, but if you got those SKUs from this forum... they will work as intended without any modification required.

    MEP 805A Libby Voltage Reg. Retrofit

    I'm not familiar with this machine, but I am assuming its mechanically governed like the smaller sets (not electronically governed). If that assumption is true, no controls play part in RPM shift.

    MEP 805A Libby Voltage Reg. Retrofit

    Is it the hertz gauge that's moving around, or is the sound of the engine actually changing rpm (and thus changing what the gauge displays)? An important distinction.

    MEP005A frequency meter not working.

    My wife's fighting with me to get reading glasses for the small stuff. I told her I didn't see the need. :ROFLMAO: She wasn't as amused as I was.

    MEP005A frequency meter not working.

    As Ray said, you need to nail down what RPM you are currently running at (as its directly proportional to hertz). Kill A Watts are a great cheap tool for your arsenal.. so is a digital multimeter with the more extended features. If you find you are at or near the right RPM, it is easily...

    Obscure question, MEP-831A

    I assume the baby MEP has NPT threads like its bigger brothers, so just pull the plug and head over to a hardware or plumbing supply shop and match up with some fittings. Seems the 831 doesnt have a proper -24P for the machine (I saw one for the engine in the TM section here, but not for the...

    Mep 803

    It won't. Overload can be phantom (ie corrosion) or physical (burden resistors, overload relay, etc). The phantom can only be cleared with a generous dousing of all contacts in S8 with something like deoxit d5, and physical movement between the phases with the switch until your elbow wants to...
