The illustrations and data used in the manual were current at the time of printing, but the
Z-Spray may vary slightly due to ongoing engineering changes. L. T. Rich Products, Inc
reserves the right to implement engineering and design changes to the Z-Spray as may be
necessary without prior notification.
2.2
Safety Guards and Covers
Safety is a primary concern in the design and manufacturing of all L. T. Rich Products.
Unfortunately, our extensive efforts to provide safe equipment can be negated by a single
careless act of an operator. In addition to the design and configuration of the Z-Spray,
hazard control and accidents prevention are also dependent upon the awareness,
condition, maintenance, and storage of the Z-Spray. THE BEST SAFETY PRACTICE IS
AN INFORMED, CAREFUL OPERATOR!!
Safety guards are mounted on the backside of the Hydro-Gear Pumps (at the shin level of
the operator). These guards are designed to cover the hydraulic belt under the base and
protect the operator. Removing this guard could cause injury to an operator and could
void the Z-Spray’s warranty. Remove this guard ONLY when unit is turned off to do
preventative maintenance.
2.3
Operational Safety Rules
Never operate the Z-Spray without all covers, shields, and safety devices installed and
secured.
Never permit any person other than the operator to ride or board the Z-Spray at any time.
NEVER ALLOW RIDERS!!!
Use extreme care and maintain minimum ground speed when transporting on a hillside or
over rough ground, and when operating close to ditches, fences, or water.
The owner/user can prevent and is responsible for accidents or injuries occurring to
himself or herself, other people.
Operate only in daylight or good artificial light (min 200 lux).
Never allow anyone near the Z-Spray while in operation.
Only operate machine from the operator’s platform (Foot Pan), never operate machine
when standing on the ground.
Be alert for holes in the terrain as well as any other hidden hazards. Always drive slowly
over rough ground.
Never operate this machine on slopes exceeding 15 degrees in any direction. NOTE: To
operate on terrain that exceeds these limits constitutes misuse of the equipment and as such,
any and all injuries as a result of said use are expressly disclaimed.
2.4
Maintenance Safety Rules
Never perform maintenance on the Z-Spray when children are present.
Never allow anyone near the operation controls while performing service or maintenance
to the Z-Spray.
Page 3
Keep the Z-Spray engine area free of accumulated debris, fuel, or excess grease and oil to
prevent fire hazard.
Periodically tighten all nuts, bolts and screws and check that all fasteners are properly
installed to ensure that the Z-Spray is in safe operating condition.
Never perform maintenance on the Z-Spray while parking brake is disengaged.
**Refueling your Z-Spray**
Use only approved gasoline container.
Never remove the gas cap or add fuel with the engine running.
Extinguish all cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and other sources of ignition.
Never fuel the machine indoors.
Allow the engine to cool before refueling.
If fuel is spilled on clothing, change clothing immediately
If fuel is spilled, do not attempt to start the engine. Contain, remove and verify that all
fuel has been removed before starting the machine.
Remove Fuel Tank Cap
Place a funnel in the Fuel Tank receptacle
Slowly pour the fuel from the container into the receptacle. Don not pour to fast causing a
spill (funnel will allow only so much fuel to drain into Fuel Tank)
Replace Fuel Tank Cap and screw on tight.
2.5
Storage Safety Rules **use fuel stabilizer if machine will sit for more than 30 days**
Never store the Z-Spray in any area accessible by children.
Never store the Z-Spray with fuel in the tank inside a building where fumes could reach
an open flame or spark.
Allow the Z-Spray engine to cool before storing in an enclosed area.
Lubricate all moving parts of the Z-Spray to prevent rust during storage.
Remove all accumulated debris from the Z-Spray and attachments before storing.

MAINTENANCE (Maintenance Chart in the back of manual)
Engine Maintenance (Vanguard 16HP or 18HP)
**USE COMPRESSED AIR (NOT WATER) WHEN CLEANING ENGINE**
Use only original equipment replacement parts. Other parts may not perform as
well, may damage unit, and may result in injury
Page 4
Oil Recommendations: Briggs & Stratton recommends the use of certified oils for best
performance. Other high-quality detergent oil are acceptable if classified for service SF,
SG, SH, SJ or higher. Do not use special additives.
Outdoor temperatures determine the proper oil viscosity for the engine. Use the chart to
select the best viscosity for the outdoor temperature range expected.
If the oil level is below the ADD mark, add oil until it reaches the FULL mark. Start the
engine and run for a few seconds. Turn engine off and check dipstick for proper fill level.
(oil drain hose located on right side)
(pull drain plug to side of frame)
Fuel Recommendations: Fuel must meet these requirements
 Clean, fresh, unleaded gasoline.
 A minimum of 87 octane/87 AKI (91 RON).
 Gasoline with up to 10% ethanol (gasohol) or up to 15% MTBE (methyl tertiary
butyl ether) is acceptable
Full Maintenance Information Can Be Located In The Engine Manual Provided
3.2
Hydraulic System Maintenance
**USE COMPRESSED AIR (NOT WATER) WHEN CLEANING HYDRAULIC SYSTEM**
Hydro-Gear recommends that the fluid and filter(s) be changed every 500 hours. Use
5W-40 Synthetic Oil when replacing the oil in your system
Hydraulic system requires 25 micron oil filters (part # 80404) or equivalent to be used.
Check for hydraulic leaks daily to ensure proper fluid levels.
Page 5
3.3
Traction Unit Maintenance
The Z-Spray has 5 grease fittings that require periodic greasing. These locations can be
found on the wheel assembly (1 on each front wheel assembly), on the caster assembly (1
on each front caster assembly), and the drive belt idler (1 on idler arm).
Inspect wheel and caster assembly every 25 hours for bearing wear, damage, debris, and
proper installation.
Inspect idler arm bushing every 50 hours for wear. These bushings are a wear items and
will have to be replaced periodically.
Inspect all bolts, washers, nuts, pins and other mounting hardware of Z-Spray once a
week to ensure that hardware pieces are properly tightened.
3.4
Spray System Maintenance
The Z-Spray has both a granular spreader system as well as a liquid spray system.
Maintaining these two systems will ensure you years of use, proper calibration and limit
premature wear.
The spray system contains 2ea. 12 gallon liquid storage tanks. Additional tanks can be
mounted upon request to either increase units liquid capacity, or allow a unit to have a
separate system for different liquid products that can disperse a host of liquid and/or
wettable powder. To get maximum life and performance out of the spray system, it is
recommended that the tank(s), nozzles and hoses be flushed of all products after each use.
Storing product in system for an extended time may cause build up in hoses, premature
cracking on hoses, creates leaks in the hoses, clogged nozzles and filters, and a host of
other potential liquid system challenges (depending on your water source, not draining
the water out of the system and storing the Z-Spray dry can create algae build up).
Make sure that both the In-line filter screen and nozzle tip screens are checked weekly
and cleaned if needed. Clogged filters can lead to improper liquid dispersal and will
create inaccurate spray rates.
Keep hose reel valve in closed position when not in use. This will
prevent the boom nozzles from dripping due to pressure build-up in the
hose reel.
Check 5 psi check ball screens daily. Build up on screen will create clogging and
inaccurate spray rates.
Page 6
Check spray system In-line filter gasket weekly. Improper gasket placement, missing
gasket or filter not tightened down can create loss in pump pressure.
Check spray tips for any clogging of materials or foreign objects.
Clean out tank on daily basis for proper storing.
3.5
Spreader Maintenance
The Z-Spray come equipped with a 120lb spreader that require some amount of attention
and maintenance.
**USE COMPRESSED AIR (NOT WATER) WHEN CLEANING HOPPER**
Lubricate (Silicone Spray) Hopper, Deflector and Diffuser cables weekly.
Clean debris and product from Hopper daily to eliminate build up.
Keep hydraulic hose fittings tight and free of leaks.
Be sure that the 4ea Rate Gate & Diffuser Guides (ref # 9 on page 17) are not damaged
to allow the hopper door to slide freely
Check agitator wire on a daily basis. If wire is not present, product will run the risk of
building up prior to reaching hopper door and not spreading evenly.
3.6
Attachment Maintenance
The Z-Spray can be equipped with a few of the L T Rich Products attachments. These
available attachments include a 7 gallon Specialty Tank, gallon Isolated Tank or a 1
gallon Foam Marking Kit. Individually or all together, these attachments can be mounted
on to your unit for a combination of different uses. Like the spray system, these
attachments will need maintenance from time to time.
~ 7 Gallon Auxiliary Tank – This attachment is a separate tank that uses the pump
provided on the existing unit. Since it is cycled through the same system as the standard
tank(s), this tank should be treated the same when going through a maintenance routine.
Flush all products out of the tank and related hoses on a daily basis. Storing product in
system for an extended time may cause build up in hoses, premature cracking on hoses,
creates leaks in the hoses, clogged nozzles and filters and a host of other potential liquid
system challenges (depending on your water source, not draining the water out of the
system and storing the Z-Spray dry can create algae build up). Clean out tank on daily
basis for proper storage. This tank is traditionally used to increase capacity size in the
liquid system and/or used to store and disperse higher end/special liquid products.
~ 7 Gallon Isolated Tank – This attachment is the 7-gallon Isolated Tank that has its
own pump, In-line 50-mesh screen, pressure gauge, throttle valve and 25’ coil hose
(standard). The same maintenance practices should be applied as the 7-gallon Specialty
Tank along with checking the 50-mesh In-Line filter on a daily basis. Make sure rubber
gasket remains intact when taking filter housing off and on. Improper gasket placement,
missing gasket or In-filter not tightened down can create loss in pump pressure. This
attachment is used mostly for your NON-TURF friendly products such as Round Up and
other total kill products, but can also be used for selective products.
Page 7
~ Foam Marking Kit – This attachment allows a unit to mark the turf and make the
operator aware of where the product was just applied. The foam marker drop nozzle is
installed at the end of the spray booms and disperses foam droplets 12” in from the outer
spray pattern (if spray pattern is 8’, the foam droplets will be 6’ wide). Important
maintenance practice for this foam marker is to periodically run warm water through the
system to dissolve any leftover residue. When storing unit or not using foam marker,
store foam marker tank empty and without water to limit residue buildup.

4.1
SPRAYER/SPREADER OPERATIONS
Overview
The L T Rich Products sprayer and spreader can be operated either together or
individually (spray liquid and spread granular at the same time or separately). Regardless
of your situation, make sure that unit is running at full throttle (this will create proper
hydraulic pressure to the hopper motor and proper charge voltage back to the battery).
~ Sprayer – The spray system has the ability to spray in 3 sections of the boom. The
wing booms (left and right) each have their own nozzles creating a 24” liquid path on
either side. The middle boom is equipped with 2 nozzles covering a 48” liquid path. The
unit is equipped with 3 valves, which operate the left, right and middle boom sections.
This allows a customer to spray 24” from the left (or right) nozzle individually with the
other nozzles in the closed position. The other is true that a customer can close off the
wing nozzles and open the middle nozzle to spray a 48” liquid path.
Creating pressure to these nozzles is done through the Throttle Valve. Threading the
Throttle Valve in (picture below left) will create pressure to either the boom nozzles or
the hose reel. Threading the Throttle Valve out (picture below middle) will bring
pressure to the tank(s) and create agitation. If threading the Throttle Valve in does not
create the desired pressure, check your In-line filter housing and make sure that the
gasket is present and the housing is screwed on tight. If desired pressure is still not
achieved, pressure adjustments can be made at the pump (pictured below right).
Clockwise turns create more pressure and counter-clockwise turns decrease pressure.

If optimum pressure is achieved but boom nozzles are dripping, look at either your gasket
in your boom nozzles (may not be present or if present may not be seated properly) or the
hose reel valve may be open. Leaving the hose reel valve in the open position will not
allow the 5 psi check ball valves to close immediately when the pump is turned off. This
will create the nozzles to leak and drip for a short period of time upon shutting the pump
off, so make sure that your hose reel valve is turned to the off position if not in use.
Page 8
Turning on the spray system can be done one of two ways. Your first option would be the
On/Off switch located on the control panel. This would be located on the lower/right side
of the control panel. The second way to turn the spray system on is the foot switch
located on the left side on the Foot Pan. This is a good way to turn on the spray system
because it allows the operator to keep both hands on the control arms and drive the unit.
By applying pressure on the foot switch with your left foot, the spray system is turned on.
Releasing the foot switch will turn the spray system off.
~Spreader – The Z-Spray units are equipped with either a 120 lb spreader. The hydraulic
hopper motor with the spreader control rate knob allows variable spread widths from 3 to
25 feet. This depends on volume/density, particle size and rate of travel, and weather
conditions. The pattern can be increased or decreased while spreading depending on
need. This allows you to spread and spray at the same time. A typical pattern is to overlap
the fertilizer pattern back to the tire tracks and the spray pattern boom to boom. To spray
and spread at the same time: Set the spread pattern for twice the width of the spray. For
this Junior 36 model you have a spray width of 8 feet. Set the spread width to 16 feet and
spread back to the tire tracks. The spray pattern will match boom to boom. The spread
thins or feathers at the outer edges, eliminating sharp “edge of spread” lines, which cause
stripes and streaks. Determine a dial setting on the low side. If setting is too low, cover
the area more than one time. A higher setting can be used when a proven dial setting is
established. Travel at a constant speed for consistent results. Remember-Published dial
settings are approximate only. Open the hopper door after the spreader is turned on
at operating speed.
4.2
Operations
Upon turning the key on to start the unit, apply full choke. Once unit has started, release
first the choke and then the brake. Push Joy Sticks forward equally to move unit forward.
Should you want the unit to backup in the reverse direction, pull back on the Joy Sticks.
If a turn is desired, push opposite Joy Stick of the direction you want the unit to head
forward (if wanting to turn left, push the right Joy Stick forward while keeping the left
Joy Stick slightly back of the right thus allowing the right tire to turn more than the left.
Push more on the left Joy Stick if you desire to turn the unit to the right). Be cautious as
turn radiuses change with the speed you are going and the amount each Joy Stick is
positioned forward or backward.
Like stated on page 8, turning the liquid pump on and off can be made from two different
locations. The common on/off switch for the pump is located on the control panel. There
is a foot switch located on the left side of the foot plate to allow the operator to turn the
pump on or off upon request (press on foot switch when you want the pump to turn on
and release the foot switch when wanting to shut off pump system).
Using the spreader system, there are 3 cables to operate the hopper door (far left cable),
the diffuser (middle cable) and the deflector shield (lower right cable). By pulling on the
far left hopper door cable, this will open the door and allow product to fall on the spinner.
Adjustments as to how wide the door opens are made on the front on the hopper with the
Hopper Rate Dial (Ref # 13 on page 17). This limits how wide the door will open and
how much granular product will be coming out. The diffuser cable (middle cable)
controls the spread pattern. Turning the cable knob counter-clockwise will loosen the
cable lock and allow you to adjust (pull further out or push further in) this cable.
Page 9
Doing this will allow you to spread granular product heavier to the left, consistent in the
middle or heavier to the right. Once you have adjusted to your desired pattern, turn the
knob clockwise to lock in position.
The lower cable on the far right hand side is the deflector shield cable. This cable allows
you to lift and lower the deflector shield accordingly. During normal spreading
applications, the deflector shield would stay in the up position and cable would be
extended out all the way. When wanting to close off the left side and use the deflector
shield, push in the cable and the shield will drop down blocking off granular product on
the left side.
This Z-Spray Junior 36 unit is equipped with the Locking Caster System. This allows the
operator to lock the front caster wheels in the forward position to create more side hill
stability. The Locking Caster System is applied when the operator compresses the
Locking Caster System foot pedal located on the right side of the footplate (pictured
below left). When compressing the foot pedal, locking mechanism slides over the caster
pin locking the wheel in the forward/straight position (pictured below middle). This
system is spring loaded, so by releasing this pedal it will release the lock on the front
caster wheels (pictured below right).

Valving
The Z-Spray Junior 36 is equipped with 2ea -12 gallon liquid tanks for the spray system.
Pictured below are the valve controls on the Junior 36 that allows a few different features.
(pull liquid from right tank ONLY)
(transferring product from right tank to left tank)
*NOTE: Liquid is pulled from the larger ¾” hose and returned to the ½” hose
Page 10
The Junior 36 gives you the option of pulling product from both tanks simultaneously or
independently. The picture above left shows the right side valves ON and the left side
valves OFF.
Periodically check the in-line filter for any debris in the screen. If debris is present, this
can create erratic pressure spikes and/or not allow the proper flow through system. After
clearing any debris, ensure that gasket remains intact and tighten in-line filter cap (if not
installed properly, this will allow air to get in the system and system will lose or not
create pressure).
(In-line filter housing, screen & gasket)
(In-line filter cap & gasket)
The pump switch located on the control panel turns on the spray system pump as well as
the spot spray foot switch on the left side of the foot pan. Once the pump is turned on,
the throttle valve is turned clockwise to increase pressure and/or counter-clockwise to
release pressure (and create agitation if the pump is on). The pressure can be read on the
gauge (decreasing pressure from gauge will increase agitation in the tank).
Opening the chrome valve allows liquid to the 75’ (or 100’ if that option was taken) Cox
Hose Reel for spraying out of the hand spray gun. When Hose Reel is not in use, be sure
to turn valve off to prevent boom tips from dripping.

Spray Calibration/Tip Chart/Liquid Quantities
The Z-Spray liquid system comes standard with lavender colored Air Injected tips which
will apply liquid material @ .34 (1/3) gallons per 1,000 sq. ft. @ 5 m.p.h and 40 psi. Each
tip has a 5 psi shut-off screen to prevent drip.
Your machine is capable of using tips from ¼ to 1 gallon in size. See chart for your
desired drop rate.
Page 11
The following are some general guidelines for sprayer calibration (Note: this chart only
applies if using Air Injected tips. Using other tips will require different calculations).
Please refer to the spray chart provided for complete calibration (spray charts are now
located on the backside of the knee pad for quick in the field reference).

The throttle valve adjusts pressure. The throttle valve is located on the left side of the
Manifold assembly (page 19). Turn clockwise to increase pressure, counter clockwise to
decrease pressure. Pressure will be displayed on the Pressure Gauge (part # 60032 on
page 19). Once the nozzles are opened, you will notice a slight decrease in pressure
(adjust accordingly).
To determine liquid quantities per tank, understand what tips you have on your machine
(factory set is 1/3 gallon per 1,000 sq. ft. through the Lavender tips). For instance some
products call for 1.1 to 1.5 oz per 1,000 sq. ft. We would recommend using 1.3 (median
value of 1.1 to 1.5). Since you are using a 1/3-gallon tip, you need to multiply by 3, and
then multiply that number of gallons you need to put in your tank.
1.3 (median value of 1.1 to 1.5) X 3 (1/3 gallon tips) X gallons needed. If you were filling
an 18-gallon tank your equation would look like this:
1.3 X 3 X 18 = 70.2 ounces in 18 gallons of water.
5.3
Spreader Calibration/Layout
The Spreader Motor Control determines the speed of the impeller in the front on the
machine. Your machine is capable of varying its spread pattern from 3 – 25 feet with this
control. Being hydraulically driven, the spread pattern is independent of the ground
speed.
The Hopper Control Cable opens and closes the door inside the base of the hopper. The
maximum size of the opening will be determined by the rate adjustment on the Hopper
Rate Dial. This will set your rate gate linkage bar to limit and stop the rate the door can
open.
The Diffuser adjustment allows the user to adjust the intensity of the spread pattern. A
small pull shifts the product placement on the impeller either to the edge of the impeller
or the middle of the impeller. This in turn shifts the spread pattern heavier to the left
(placing product to the edge of the impeller) or heavier to the right (placing product to the
middle of the impeller). *FOR MORE DETAILED INFORMATION, GO TO

(Hopper, Diffuser and Deflector Cables)
(Hopper Rate Dial)
(Hydraulic hopper motor)
(Diffuser shown on underside of opening)
Your machine is equipped with a 120 lb Spyker model spreader. The hydraulic spreader
motor with the spreader motor control has the ability to vary spread widths from 3 to 25
feet. This depends on volume/density, particle size and rate of travel, and weather
conditions. The pattern can be increased or decreased while spreading depending on
needs. This allows you to spread and spray at the same time. A typical pattern is to
overlap fertilizer pattern back to the tire tracks and the spray pattern boom to boom.
To spray and spread at the same time: Set the spread pattern to twice the width of the
spray. For example a junior and intermediate model has a spray width of 8 feet. Set the
spreader width to 16 feet and spread back to the tire tracks. The spray pattern will match
boom to boom.
This feathers material at the outer edges, eliminating sharp “edge to spread” lines which
cause stripes and streaks.
Determine a dial setting on the low side. If setting is too low, cover the area more than
one time. A higher setting can be used when a proven dial setting is established. Travel at
a constant speed.
Remember- Published dial settings are approximate only. Open the hopper door after the
spreader is turned on at operating speed.

SECTION 7
7.1
TROUBLE SHOOTING
Troubleshooting
Engine:

Not starting. There are a few reasons as to why your engine fails to start. If
the engine does not turn over, then the battery could be dead, bad
connection to the battery wires, key switch may be bad, 30 AMP fuse on
the wiring harness (orange wire) may be blown or the starter solenoid may
be bad (you will hear the starter solenoid trying to click on, but nothing is
happening). Another common reason for a unit not starting is after unit has
been washed. Water gets into the spark plug boot and gets the spark plug
wet. Pull spark plug boot and dry (spray WD-40).

Engine turns over but doesn’t start. There are a few reasons as to why your
engine will turn over but not start. If the fuel valve is turned off (under
fuel tank), loose or bad spark plug, water in fuel, choke partially closed or
wet and/or foul plugs. Check if no fuel or Fuel Tank lever is partially off.

Engine won’t stay running. Few things to look for if your engine does not
stay running are clogged fuel filter, clogged and/or dirty air filter, fuel
valve partially closed, water in fuel or low fuel.
Hydraulics:

Hydraulic system making loud noise when running. This could be caused
by a couple of things. The most common is if there is air in the system.
This can be caused when changing out a hydro pump, replacing a
hydraulic hose or having a loose fitting on the intake lines. If air is not
present, check for low levels in the system. This happens when there is a
leak in the hydraulic system somewhere or hydraulic fluids were just
changed and did not get back to the proper fill level.

Need to tow my unit; what do I need to do in order to not ruin my hydro
pumps?? There are tow valves on each of the hydro pumps (hex head with
hole running through it on the left side rear of the hydraulic pump) that
needs to be turn at least 1 ½ revolutions counter-clockwise to open the
hydraulic system (but NEVER remove). Once the unit is brought to a
desired location, remember to tighten the tow valves back tight
(clockwise).
Tracking:
 Unit not tracking straight when pushing both control arms to the speed
bar. This is caused when the linkage to the hydraulic pump is not even or
a hydraulic pump is going bad. Traditionally the linkage needs to be
adjusted so that they both have the same amount of pull. If it is pulling to
the left, the left hydraulic pump linkage is longer than the right; you can
either adjust the right to a longer linkage, or adjust the left to a shorter
linkage to match the right.
Page 26
Granular:
 There are numerous potential challenges that can happen on the granular
side due to the amount of use this portion of the unit sees. If product is not
spreading evenly or consistently, then look for a few things with your
hopper impeller or hopper diffuser. If there is build up at the end of the
Impeller tips or the tips are worn, this will cause an un-even and/or
inconsistent spread pattern. Another potential challenge is if the pattern is
not even when the Accuway is not part of the picture. This is sometimes
caused when granular product is moist and holding on longer than normal.
 If granular product is leaking out from the hopper, determine where it is
coming from and look at this repair options. If the granular product is
leaking through the hopper shaft area, then your hopper busing is worn.
This will allow product to get in between the shaft and the hopper
bushing. If granular product is leaking through the hopper door area, then
Diffuser Guides are loose or worn allowing a gap between the door and
the hopper base. Also a potential factor is if the hopper cable is not
completely closing the hopper door.
 When your hopper door cannot open, there are typically 3 things to look
at. One is that your hopper cable may be frozen and locked up, the ball
joint end may have broken off or there may be product jammed between
the hopper door and the base (due to loose door guides).
Spray System:

Liquid is dribbling from the tips. This effect is potentially caused by a few
things. If the Cap Gasket is missing, the 5 PSI Check Ball is stuck and not
closing or Diaphragm (rear of Nozzle Body) is damaged. Also check to
see if the Pressure Regulator is turned all the way up (no bypass).

Pressure not staying consistent. This is normally caused due to air being
introduced to the system. Air is introduced in a few ways through the
system. Air can come through one of the hose connections, the In-line
filter housing not being tight or not having a gasket to seal housing,
sucking air from an auxiliary tank or liquid level is too low.

Charging Issues:
20 Amp Regulated Alternator
The 20 amp regulated alternator system provides AC current through two output
leads to the regulator-rectifier. The regulator-rectifier converts the AC current to
DC, and regulates current to the battery. The charging rate will vary with engine
RPM and temperature.
1.Stator assembly (1) Figure 30.
2. Two YELLOW leads (2) from Stator.
3. RED DC output lead (3) from connector.
4. Connector (4).
5. Two YELLOW AC input leads (5).
6. Regulator-rectifier (6).
7. RED DC output lead (7) to connector
NOTE: Stator (1), regulator-rectifier (6) and fly-wheel are NOT
INTERCHANGEABLE with any other charging system.
(Figure 30)
(Figure 31)
Output Test
WHEN CHECKING THE ALTERNATOR COMPONENTS, PERFORM
THE TEST IN THE FOLLOWING SEQUENCE:
Temporarily disconnect stator wire harness from regulator-rectifier.
1. Insert RED test lead into VΩ receptacle in meter.
2. Insert BLACK test lead into COM receptacle.
3. Rotate selector to V~ (AC VOLTS) position.
CAUTION: Attach meter test leads to the AC output terminals (YELLOW wires)
in the connector BEFORE starting the engine. If the stator is grounded (defective)
and the meter test leads contact the center DC output pin (RED wire) in the
connector, arcing could occur, damaging the wiring.
4. Attach RED (2) and BLACK (1) test lead probes to the YELLOW wire (4)
AC output terminals (6), of the connector (3), as shown in Figure 31. (Meter
test clip leads may be attached to either AC output terminal).
5. If NO or LOW output is found check for bare wires or other defects. If
shorted leads are not visible, replace the stator.
6. With the engine running at 3600RPM output should be no less than 26 Volts

DC Output Charging Wire Test
A simple test can be used to test the DC output charging wire circuit. If a wiring problem
exists it can be corrected before testing regulator-rectifier.
Leave stator wire harness disconnected from regulator-rectifier. Equipment key switch
must be in OFF position.
1. Insert RED test lead into VΩ receptacle in meter.
2. Insert BLACK test lead into COM receptacle.
3. Rotate selector to V= = (DC volts) position.
4. Attach RED test lead probe (2) to the RED wire (5) DC output terminal (7), of the
connector. (Figure 31).
5. Attach BLACK test lead probe (1) to negative battery terminal.
6. Turn equipment key switch to ON position. Meter should display BATTERY
VOLTAGE.
7. If meter does not display voltage, check for blown fuse or broken or shorted wire.
Regulator-Rectifier Test
Tools Required:
DC Shunt #19359
The DC Shunt MUST be installed on the NEGATIVE (-) terminal of the battery, Figure
32 to avoid blowing the fuse in the meter when testing the output of the 20 amp system.
All connections must be clean and tight for correct readings.
1. Connect stator wire harness to regulator-rectifier.
2. Install DC Shunt #19359 (4) on NEGATIVE battery terminal.
3. Insert RED test lead into VΩ receptacle in meter and connect to RED post terminal
on shunt (5), Figure 32.
4. Insert BLACK test lead in COM receptacle in meter. Connect to BLACK post
terminal on shunt (3).
5. Rotate selector to 300mV position.
6. With the engine running at 3600RPM, the output should be 3-20 Amps.
NOTE: Depending on battery voltage and/or current draw on system
If NO or LOW output is found, be sure that regulator-rectifier is grounded properly and
all equipment connections are clean and secure. If there is still NO or LOW output,
replace the regulator-rectifier.
