Default MEP 803a Parts

Where is a good place to find parts for these units? I got it for filters but what about relays or voltage regulators? I need a voltage regulator for my mep 803

I have just picked up a trailer mtd 802/and a trailer mtd 803. From what I can see I would think the VR could be repaired. I have been going to have a discussion with Brian Clugston at Flight systems re this, as they are the ones to do it if it can be done.
I also think that you could install a replacement Flight Systems regulator, as the ends appear to be commercial ends, and unlike the MEP 002/003, were a bear to use a different regulator.
The relays I understand are no longer Potter Broomfield, but are made offshore. Was going to look into this as I want to have some spares.
Over all pretty impressed with the sets, although getting to some items is a real BI--H, and replacing the sheet metal is a pain.
The other thing I changed is the exhaust stack cover system, as there were many sets that were ruined due to heavy rain. All you need is a coupling, and a flapper.

So you think Flight Systems can repair the MEP 803 regulator? Who should I speak with when calling?

Call and ask for Brian Clugston, I talked to him yesterday re your regulator, and he needs one to look into and see how they are constructed.
IF they are not potted which I believe they are not then he can do a little research, and knowing Bryan he will get the job done or come up with a replacement.
I was suppose to send him some info re exciter voltage today, but got sidetracked, which at 72 is not to hard to do.
I would suggest that you send yours to him and I wont have to go looking for one to send to him.
Re relays just ordered 6 last nite from amazon, they are a tyco KUP14D15-24, also Potter Blumfield is the same #.
The fan belt is a Gates MICROVAT K040355, also Amazon make sure you get Gates.

Talked to Brian last week and sent him my regulator, we'll see what he says! It can't hurt it's broke already.

I think if Brian cant fix it, no one can, and I am sure he will assist you finding a replacement. Really a great guy
Let me know how this turns out
