3Capacity Test Satisfactory capacity tests can be made only when the battery electrolyte equals or exceeds 1.225 specific
and meter readingscEngine Load for Resistance Twist and remove the spark plug leadsConnect voltmeter across the batteryCrank
engine for 15 secondsIf voltage is 9.6 volts or higher at the end of 15 seconds, the battery has good output capacityBattery
Charging Boost charge 12-volt batteries at 50 amperes for 20 minutes (1000 ampere minutes)If the charger will not give this
rate, charge for an equal number of ampere minutes at best rate availableDO NOT boost battery more than this amount for the
"Iight load test If batteries are to be fully charged by means of quick charger, the charge rate must be "tapered" (reduced
to safe limit) when the electrolyte temperature reaches 1250 (52 C), or when gassing becomes excessiveFailure to do so may
