MEP-1050/1051 Generators: Finding Elusive Oil Filter

BLUF: Order the correct oil filter for the MEP-1050/1051 AMMPS 15-kW generators with NSN 2940-01-589-6600.

Dear Half-Mast,

I’m trying to find a good NSN for an oil filter for a MEP-1050 15-kW advanced medium mobile power source (AMMPS) generator, NSN 6115-01-561-7634. I haven’t been able to locate a good NSN in TM 9-6115-751-24&P (Nov 15). It lists NSN 4720-01-546-8857 for the oil filter but that comes up in FED LOG as hose, non-metallic.

Can you point me in the right direction?                               

Dear Master Sergeant,

Always glad to assist. You can get the oil filter with NSN 2940-01-589-6600. This info also applies to the MEP-1051 generator and replaces the error in Item 15 of Fig 26 in the RPSTL. The new CAGE code is 80LX1, the part number is 119005-35170, and the name is listed as filter element, fluid.
