TESTING - TM-5-4210-230-14P-1_460
TRUCK SERVICE MANUAL TM 5-4210-230-14&P-1 After  cleaning,  reinstall  battery  and  hold  down  parts  as instructed  under  REMOVAL  AND  INSTALLATION.    Coat battery and cable terminals with terminal grease (IH part number    472141C1)    and    connect    cables    to    battery terminals.  Connect ground cable last. 3.    On  low  maintenance  (conventional)  batteries  check  the electrolyte   level.      If   necessary,   add   odorless   drinking water to bring the liquid level to the level indicator.  If the battery does not have a level indicator, bring the level to 13  mm  (1/2  inch)  above  the  tops  of  the  separators.  Do not overfill any cell.  When a cell is overfilled, the excess electrolyte may be forced from the cell by the gas formed in  the  battery.    This  will  cause  excessive  corrosion  of adjacent  metal  parts,  reduced  performance  and  shorter life. Frequent need for refilling battery cells may indicate that battery  is  being  overcharged.    Check  charging  system and readjust voltage regulator as needed. Maintenance free type batteries do not require addition of water   under   normal   operating   conditions.      If   loss   of electrolyte    is    suspected,    check    electrolyte    level    as instructed  under  TESTING  and  determine  cause  for  low level. EMERGENCY (JUMPER) STARTING The  procedure  outlined  below  should  be  followed  exactly  if  it becomes necessary to use a booster battery to start a vehicle with a discharged battery. CAUTION Both   booster   and   discharged   batteries   must   be treated   carefully   when   using   jumper   cables.      Be careful     not     to     cause     sparks.          Observe     all precautionary     measures     listed     under     SAFETY PRECAUTIONS. Wear safety glasses or shield eyes. Any procedure other than that outlined below could result  in  1)  personal  injury  caused  by  electrolyte squirting out the battery vent,  2) personal injury or property   damage   due   to   battery   explosion,      3) damage   to   the   charging   system   of   the   booster vehicle or of the immobilized vehicle. Make  sure  booster  and  discharged  batteries  are  the  same voltage (6-volt or 12-volt). Make  certain  the  stalled  vehicle  and  the  one  containing  the booster   battery   do   not   touch.      If   the   two   vehicles   are   in contact,   a   ground   connection   could   be   established   which could cause sparking when jumper cables are attached. 1.  On both vehicles: Set parking brake.  Place transmission in  NEUTRAL  or  PARK.    Turn  lights,  heater  and  other electrical loads "OFF".  Make certain ignition key is turned "OFF". 2.  Determine whether the discharged battery has the negative (-) or positive (+) terminal grounded.  The ground cable is connected   to   the   engine   block,   vehicle   frame   or   other good metallic ground.  The battery terminal connected to the starter relay is the one which is NOT grounded. 3.    Be  sure  vent  caps  are  tight  on  both  batteries.    Place  a damp cloth over the vents of each battery.  Make certain cloth is clear of fan blades, belts or other moving parts. 4.  On negative ground vehicles, attach one end of the jumper cable  to  the  positive  (+)  terminal  of  the  booster  battery and  the  other  end  of  same  cable  to  positive  (+)  terminal of discharged battery (Figure 9). On positive ground vehicles, connect jumper cable between negative (-) battery terminals.
