RectifierRegulator Tests Variable Load Tests To test the operation of the rectifierregulator, you must be able to run the
cablesf6l 4Following the manufacturer's directions, connect the variable load tester (carbon pile) across the battery terminalsSteven's
Instrument Model NoLB-85 and Snap-on Model NoMT540D are examples of testers available i causing electrolyte gassingThis might
create an explosive atmospheref6l 5Start the engine and run it at approximately 4500 RPMUse the variable load tester to draw
the battery down at rate equivalent to the stator's full output The ammeter should indicate nearly full outputor 35 amps
"'" Excessive battery discharge rates might overheat battery, 6Decrease 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
