Description of Charging SystemAll Models The outboard charging system consists of battery, flywheel, an alternator stator
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 outputThe rectifier on 4-amp models consists of series of diodes, built into
metal case, which changes the stator's alternating current to the direct current used to charge the batteryOne, several,
or all of the rectifier diodes might become damaged, resulting in system grounded condition, no charge condition, or an incorrect
charging rate The rectifierregulator on 12-amp models performs the above functions and provides full wave regulation of the
