Testing & Troubleshooting



  1. Mount starter motor securely in a bench vise with soft jaws.
    NOTE
    The vise jaws should be clamped on the mounting flange of starter motor. Never clamp on starter motor by field frame.

  2.  
  3. Connect a suitable volt-ampere tester and a 12-volt battery to starter motor in series, and set ammeter to 100 ampere scale.
  4.  
  5. Install jumper wire from solenoid terminal to solenoid battery terminal. The starter motor should operate. If starter motor does not operate, replace starter motor.
  6.  
  7. Adjust carbon pile load of tester to obtain free running test voltage of 11 volts.
  8.  
  9. If ammeter reading exceeds 73 amps draw, replace starter motor.
