a. ALTERNATOR OUTPUT TESTING
Perform ALTERNATOR OUTPUT TESTING in paragraph 4-2, with the following exceptions:
(a) In step 6(b), set voltmeter range switch to x4 instead of x2.
(b) In step 8, raise speed until tachometer reads 5000 rpm instead of 6500 rpm.
(c) In step 10, voltage should be 28.0-29.1 instead of 14.0. If readings are not correct, repair
If drive end housing (3) does not easily separate from stator (2), drive end
housing may be tapped with plastic hammer. Failure to follow this caution
may result in damage to stator.
Ensure that relationship of slipring end housing (1), stator (2), and drive
end housing (3) are marked for assembly.
Remove 3 locknuts, washers, and screws (6). Separate slipring end housing (1) and stator (2)
from drive end housing (3). Discard locknuts.
Tag stator (2) leads for assembly, Remove 3 nuts and stator from slipring end housing (1),
