TM 9-6115-641-24P (Nov 12) for the MEP-802A and MEP-812A generator sets, and TM 9-6115-642-24P (Oct 96) for the MEP-803A and MEP813A generator sets don’t list NSNs or part numbers for engine oil filters. Maintainers need to reference the associated diesel engine TMs for those generator sets to locate the oil filter NSNs. It occurred to me that there are probably some maintainers who are not aware of associated TMs.
The associated TM numbers for these generator sets can be found in the Introduction Section under Special Information in the -24P TMs mentioned above. Specifically, Soldiers should see WP 0001-8 in TM 9-6115-641-24P or Page 6 in TM 9-6115-642-24P.

Editor’s note: We bet that's generated some interest. Thanks for sharing this valuable tip, Mr. Gensler.
Note that the MEP-802A, MEP-812A, MEP-803A and MEP813A generator sets can use the same oil filter. The updated oil filter is NSN 2940-01-154-5127, which replaces 2940-01-361-5161. One important thing to remember is that oil filters sometimes change for engines, as these items are DLA-managed and vendors may no longer produce certain filters. In many cases, however, FED LOG or i2Log gives an updated NSN whenever an NSN becomes obsolete.
Also, in many cases, Tactical Quiet Generators (TQGs) are being replaced by Advanced Medium Mobile Power Source (AMMPS) generators, but we recognize that some units may have older equipment they need to maintain.
