GENERATOR LOAD TEST
Ensure drive belt is in good condition. Replace belt as necessary. If belt is okay, connect charging system load tester in accordance with manufacturer's instructions. Start and run engine at 2000 RPM and apply load until generator output levels off. Generator output should be at least 58 amps at 2000 RPM.
GENERATOR NO-LOAD TEST
Connect voltmeter positive lead to B+ terminal on generator and negative lead to ground. Start and run engine at 2000 RPM with no electrical load (all accessories off). Read voltmeter when voltage stabilizes. Voltage should be 13-15 volts.
