Check of tension of the generator


  1. To connect the voltmeter between plus and minus poles of the battery.
  2. To start the engine. At start tension should not fall lower than 8 V (at an external temperature of +20 °C).
  3. To increase speed to 2000 rpm. Tension has to make 14,1 - 14,7 V. Eto points that the generator and the regulator work. Tension of the generator has to be higher than the battery tension that the battery was recharged at the movement.
  4. To check stability of adjustment. For this purpose to turn on driving beam and to repeat measurement at 2000 rpm. The measured tension should not be more than is 0,4 B higher than earlier measured value.
  5. If the measured values lie out of admissible limits, to check the generator in a workshop.
