The performance test of this starter
requires the use of an ammeter connected in the 120 volt
AC starter motor circuit. Extreme care should be used in
making this test to minimize the hazard of electrical
shock. It is recommended that a Hi-Pot test be
conducted after repairing starter motors to prevent injury.
Clamp the starter motor and connect ammeter as shown
in the accompanying illustration. Fig. 112. Plug the
electrical cord into a 120 volt outlet, insert the
tachometer in the end of the starter motor and press the
starter motor switch. Disregard surge current.
