Description of Charging SystemAll odels The outboard charging system consists of battery, flywheel, an alternator stator,
wrapped around metal laminationsThe stator is attached to the upper crankcase headThe flywheel's magnetic lines of force
cutting through the stator windings produce alternating currentThe stator or its leads could be damaged which could result
in reduced or no alternator output 131 The rectifierregulator changes the stator's alternating current to the direct current
used to charge the engine's battery and support the boat's electrical systemThe unit also provides full wave regulation of
the charging systemAn additional circuit, represented by the gray lead, provides tachometer signal for the Quartachand 7K
