TEST OR INSPECTION
1. ENGINE BACKFIRES
Overheated or sticky valves.
2. ENGINE KNOCKS
Step 1. Worn or loose piston pin.
Step 2. Connecting rod bearing loose or burned out.
Step 4. Weak or broken valve springs.
Step 5. Excessive carbon.
Remove cylinder heads and scrape carbon from head and from top of piston (para 6-11).
3. OIL CONSUMPTION HIGH
Step 1. Worn valve guides, oil rings, cylinder walls and pistons.
Replace worn guides, oil rings, and pistons (para 6-12, 6-17).
Step 2. Worn main or connecting rod bearings.
1. BATTERY OVERCHARGE
With engine running full governed rpm, check battery voltage with dc voltmeter.
If voltage is over 15.0.
Replace regulator module.
If voltage is under 15.0.
Check battery condition.
2. LOW/NO CHARGE
Step 1. With engine running at full governed rpm, check battery voltage with dc voltmeter. If voltage is greater than 14 volts, place load
on battery to reduce voltage below 14 volts.
If the change rate increases.
Replace regulator module.
If charge rats does not increase with new regulator module.
Replace rectifier module.
Step 2. With engine stopped unplug all connectors between modules and stator. Start engine and run at full governed rpm. With ac
voltmeter check voltage between each of the black stator leads and ground. If one of the two voltages iszero or they are over 10%
Replace the stator.
