MAINTENANCE (continued)

ALTERNATOR SYSTEM

The Alternator system provides electrical energy to charge a 12 volt battery, operate attachment drive, and for lighting. The engine has a 15 amp Alternator system with Rectifier Regulator Assembly (W) which is externally mounted beneath the battery support. The Rectifier Regulator Assembly is shown in figure 28.
With the exception of the permanent magnet ring which is affixed to the flywheel, the 15 amp Alternator system has no moving or mechanically operated parts and is therefore virtually service free.
The only service required is an occasional check to make sure all electrical connections are tight and that wires are not frayed or cracked.

CAUTION

TO AVOID DAMAGE TO THE ALTERNATOR SYSTEM, MAKE SURE THE FOLLOWING PRECAUTIONS ARE TAKEN.

1. Battery polarity must be correct negative (-) battery terminal is connected to ground.

2. Rectifier-Regulator must be in common ground with engine and battery.

3. Disconnect plug from RegulatorRectifier if arc welding is done on equipment in common ground with engine.

4. Disconnect battery to regulator lead when battery is being recharged.

5. DO NOT operate engine with batter disconnected from Alternator System.

INTERLOCK SWITCHES
This unit is equipped with 3 interlock switches. 

The function of these safety
switches is to insure SAFE START-UP and safe operation of the unit.

1. One switch is incorporated into the Attachment Drive Switch.

2. The second switch (V) is below the seat see figure 21. This switch should be activated when back edge of seat suppor (W) is depressed 5/8 (1.6 cm). If not, loosen bracket (X) and move to correct location. The switch can also be activate by raising the seat and lifting the interlock button (Y) up.
