It has only 300 hours and is in seemingly decent condition. I will
see if it works, it would be second MEP-017A. This one might go to my

Also picked what seems to be an Onan L series/Cummins A series engine
still in its original crate.

I have at least two more trips to make, two more DJCs, one more
mystery diesel engine, Kinney vacuum pump (looks like 10 HP) and two
giant hydraulic cylinders.

nearby (45 miles) military base. www.govliquidation.com. I am charging
the battery right now. It already "clicks" when the solenoid switch is
turned on, and spins the flywheel maybe 10 degrees before running out
of juice. I can post pix. I sold one before, though this one is green
and that one was desert yellow. See my archived auction


for what I won now, see


I brought home the mep-017a and the generator labeled #5 on the
picture page above. the rest awaits pickup.
