Picking up for my FD in the next few days 3x MEP531A and a MEP803A. Other than complete, anything to look for/be aware of on these units? I'm quite familiar with MEP0002/003/004/007 and T&J diesels.

Well I can think of 3 things on the mep 531a. The first do not over fill the oil. If it's a teaspoon over it will not run right. Smoke . And hunt up and down like crazy. Second replace all fuel lines and hose clamps. 3rd check all mounting hardware as the will get loose and damage the power leads from the generator.
