connect carbon pile at this time.
adjust carbon pile as required to obtain
maximum current output.
f. If output is within 10 amperes of 65
amperes, then alternator is good.
g. If output is not within 10 amperes of 65
amperes keep battery loaded with carbon
pile and insert screwdriver into end frame
