SUPPRESSION CAPACITOR CHECK
Remove capacitor lead from terminal B+.
Connect multimeter between lead of capacitor and
Meter shall read 1.8 to 2.6 mF. Replace suppression
capacitor if value is not met.
Remove transistor regulator (1) from alternator (2)
by removing screws (3). Remove suppression
capacitor (4) by removing screw (5).
Before proceeding, match mark shields (6, 7) and
stator for ease of assembly.
Remove four screws (8) and carefully separate drive
end shield (6) from ring end shield (7).
