1-21. ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
(INSIDE INSTRUMENT PANEL)
Provide power for the electrical circuits. Two 12 volt batteries are connected in series to
provide starting power.
The 24 volt, 70 amp alternator, an integral part of the charging circuit, provides current
to charge the batteries when the engine is running.
Part of the starting circuit, the starter motor is used to turn the engine flywheel fast
enough to start the engine.
Located inside instrument panel. Switches that open the battery circuit if there is a
shorted, grounded wire or excessive current draw by a defective component in the
corresponding circuit. When the circuit is open, no current will flow through the
electrical system. Circuit breakers will automatically reset once they cool. If a breaker
continually trips, the electrical system requires repair.
