Description: Action in the event of falls in voltage in the starter motor and charging circuits
Falls in voltage between batteries and the alternator are frequently the reason for poor battery charging. Corroded or paint-covered contact surfaces in the starter motor and charging circuits usually cause such a fall in voltage. The following action should be taken to solve these problems.
Remarks. If the battery cable shoe was incorrectly fitted (see Figure 1), the battery terminal must be carefully reamed using tool 1158941. If this is not done, the contact surface between the battery terminal and the battery cable shoe will be insufficient when the battery cable shoe is fitted correctly. This also means that there will be a high risk of oxidation in the space between the upper part of the battery terminal and the battery cable shoe. Protect the battery terminals, battery cable shoes and the minus connection in the frame with Dinitrol after they have been fitted.
N.B. If the battery is changed, the battery cable shoes must always be cleaned carefully.

Note: If more than one cable is to be connected to one of the connections mentioned above, always fit the thickest cable closest to the inside. Then fit the other cables in order of thickness.
