Fig.  12  Testing Specific Gravity
TRUCK SERVICE MANUAL TM 5-4210-230-14&P-1 Fig.  10  Removing Vent Manifold to Gain Access to Cells (Side Terminal Maintenance Free Battery) section    of    the    plaque,    individual    caps    can    be unscrewed   to   allow   access   to   each   cell.      When reinstalling  cell  caps  after  testing,  make  sure  caps are properly seated. c.      If   electrolyte   level   is   above   the   plates   in   all   cells, proceed to Step 2. d.  If electrolyte level is below the tops of the plates in one or more cells, add water until electrolyte level is just above the tops of the separators.  Charge the battery 15  minutes  at  15-25  amperes  to  mix  the  water  with the  electrolyte.    After  mixing  electrolyte,  proceed  to Step 2. STEP 2.  SPECIFIC GRAVITY (HYDROMETER) TEST Perform specific gravity (hydrometer) test on all cells.  (Refer to  instructions  for  reading  hydrometer  under  ELECTROLYTE AND SPECIFIC GRAVITY.) a.  Measure and record specific gravity, corrected to 26.7°  C (80° F), of each cell.  Compare readings obtained with Table 4 to determine battery's state of charge. Fig.  11  Removing Section of Top Plaque to Gain Access to Cell Caps (Top Terminal Maintenance Free Battery) TABLE 4 Specific Gravity (Corrected to 26.7°  C or 80° F) State of Charge 1.265 Fully Charged 1.225 75% Charged 1.190 50% Charged 1.155 25% Charged 1.120 Discharged b.    If  specific  gravity  readings  of  all  cells  are  1.225  or higher when, corrected to 26.7° C (80° F), proceed to Step 3. c.    If  specific  gravity  readings  are  low  (below  1.225)  but are  within  50  points  (.050  specific  gravity)  between highest     and     lowest     cells,     recharge     battery     as instructed   under   CHARGING   and   inspect   vehicle's electrical system to determine cause for low charge. After charging battery, proceed to Step 3. d.    If  specific  gravity  readings  vary  more  than  50  points (.050   specific   gravity)   between   cells,   replace   the battery.
