4-1-4. Assembly. - Continued.
Install terminal washers (2) and terminal nuts (1).
Perform alternator performance test as follows:
(1) Mount alternator on test fixture capable of providing 5,000 alternator rpm.
Make sure connections are tight to avoid possible damage to instruments, alter-
nator, or wiring due to short circuits.
(2) Set up test circuit as shown in Figure 4-9.
Carbon pile and ammeter must be capable of handling the alternator rated output.
(3) Starting with carbon pile off, slowly increase load while observing ammeter and maintaining 5000 rpm.
Increase load until an output voltage of 27.0 - 29.0 volts is achieved. Record the output current at this point.
Acceptable minimum current is 16.2 amperes at 70° to 80°F (21 to 27°C).
