Compliance required at each 100-hour inspection and immediately after each electrical system malfunction.
Check the operation of the voltage regulator by observing the ammeter reading after starting and until the
battery becomes charged. A normal operation would indicate a charging rate up to 11-13 amperes for
periods of time up to 20 minutes after starting. The charging rate should reduce to 2 amperes or less within
2 hours or operation.
