terminalsSteven's Instrument Model NoLB-85 and Snap-on Model NoMT540D are examples of testers available"" Excessive battery
discharge rates might overheat battery causing electrolyte gassingThis might create an explosive atmospheref1l5Start the
engine and run at approximately 4500 RPMUse the variable load tester to draw the battery down at rate equivalent to the stator's
full outputThe ammeter should indicate full output6,9, or 10 amps6Decrease the battery load toward zero amps Ammeter should
show reduced outputAs the current draw decreases, the battery voltage should stabilize at approximately 14.5 volts If your
