(b) Tighten adjusting bolt (15).
(c) Apply thumb pressure to the fan belt at a point midway between water pump pulley and crankshaft
pulley. The belt should depress X in. (10 mm). If it does not, adjust the tension.
(d) Tighten mounting bolts (1 and 9).
(6) Connect alternator lead wires to alternator.
4-52. STARTER AND SOLENOID REPLACEMENT.
a. Testing Starter and Solenoid.
(1) Connect a multimeter across the battery terminals.
(2) Crank the engine.
(a) If the multimeter remains steady and the starter does not crank over, ensure that there is current
to the starter.
(b) If there is no current, ensure that all the wire terminals are tight and free of corrosion.
(c) If there is current to the starter and it does not crank over, replace it.
(d) If the multimeter reading drops appreciably and the starter fails to crank, the drive pinion may be
jammed in mesh with the flywheel. Remove starter and check engine for internal seizure.
(e) If the starter cranks over but does not drive the engine, replace it.
b. Removal (See Appendix F, Figure 78).
Disconnect battery ground cable before removing starter to prevent Injury to personnel.
(1) Disconnect and tag starter wires from solenoid.
(2) Remove nuts (5), lockwashers (4), and starter (1) from engine.
c. Installation (See Appendix F Figure 78).
(1) Install starter (1) to engine with new lockwashers (4) and nuts (5).
(2) Connect starter wires to solenoid.
Section XIV. NONELECTRICAL GAGES MAINTENANCE
4-53. PRESSURE GAGE REPLACEMENT.
a. Test the accuracy of the pressure gage by applying a known pressure to the gage.
b. If the pressure gage is damaged or gives false readings, replace it (See Appendix F, Figure 80).
