1. CONNECT THE REGULATOR AS SHOWN ABOVE.
2. POLARIZE THE GENERATOR (FIG. 3-8
3. START THE UNIT AND OPERATE AT GOVERNED SPEED FOR 15 MINUTES. THE VOLTMETER
SHOULD INDICATE 28.2 V.
REMOVE THE REGULATOR COVER AND TURN THE ADJUSTING SCREW CLOCKWISE TO INCREASE
THE VOLTAGE SETTING AND COUNTERCLOCKWISE TO DECREASE THE SETTING.
AFTER EACH ADJUSTMENT, CYCLE THE GENERATOR BY REDUCING THE ENGINE SPEED AND
MOMENTARILY OPENING THE VOLTAGE REGULATOR POINTS BY HAND. THIS ELIMINATES
RESIDUAL MAGNETISM IN THE CORE OF THE REGULATOR AND ASSURES A TRUE ADJUSTMENT.
REPLACE THE REGULATOR COVER AND BRING UNIT SLOWLY UP TO OPERATING SPEED.
NOTE THE VOLTMETER INDICATION.
REPEAT STEPS 4 AND 5 UNTIL THE DESIRED VOLTAGE IS OBTAINED.
STOP THE UNIT.
