JJ, Are you trying to say here: Shunt the "F" (field) terminal to ground and monitor the ammeter for a positive(charging)reading? Remember there are "Caps" and "Shift" keys on your keyboard. The maximum output of this starter-generator is about 10 amps on a good day. Regards, Tom(PK)

i found that you can test the genrater itis very easy to do. conect the red wire to the + side of the batery and conect the blak wire to the - side of the batery. then chek the gage. if the gage says 13v or more then the genrater is charging corectely clint
