Perform full-load test. Ensure all load switches are in ON position on test stand, and increase alter-
nator speed to 5000 rpm. Set load to 364 amps/min; record results. Refer to table 6-I, Full-Load
Test, for diagnosis.
Alternator speed and current output tracking values. Refer to table 6-J.
Perform regulator bypass test. Prepare alternator as in full-load test.
Perform this test only when instructed from tables 6-H and 6-I.
Use jumper wire rated for 15 amps.
Table 6-K. Regulator Bypass Test.
Alternator OK. Replace regulator only if low
AMPS (160-238)/low VOLTS (21-25) are indi-
cated in table 6-H and/or table 6-I.
Alternator must be repaired. Refer to static
testing, task c.
Disconnect alternator connector from regulator. With alternator spinning, use jumper wire and
