STORAGE INSTRUCTIONS
I TRUCK SERVICE MANUAL TM 5-4210-230-14&P-1 IMPORTANT If  smoke  or  dense  vapor  comes  from  the  battery, shut off the charger and reject the battery.  If violent gassing  or  spewing  of  electrolyte  occurs,  reduce  or temporarily halt the charging. If  the  engine  does  not  crank  satisfactorily  when  a  recharged battery  is  installed,  load  test  the  battery  as  outlined  under TESTING. If the battery passes the "Load Test", the vehicle's fuel,    ignition,    cranking    and    charging    systems    should    be checked to locate and correct the problem.  If it does not pass the load test, the battery should be replaced. When  an  engine  does  not  crank  satisfactorily  with  a  battery which   was   not   recharged   before   installation,   recharge   the battery  and  subject  it  to  the  load  test.    If  the  battery  fails, replace it; if it tests satisfactorily and the engine still does not crank   satisfactorily   check   the   vehicle   systems   mentioned above to locate and correct the problem. REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION REMOVAL 1. Make sure all electrical loads (lights, ignition, accessories) are turned "OFF". 2. Remove battery cover (where used). 3. Note     locations     of     battery     positive     and     negative terminals in relation to surrounding vehicle components.    Battery  must  be  installed  in  the  same position. 4. Loosen     battery     hold-down     hardware     and     remove battery from carrier tray. 5. Inspect battery cables and replace if necessary. Clean cable connector terminals wit. a wire brush. Clean  and  tighten  battery  cable  ground,  starter  relay and starter connections. 6. Inspect  battery  hold-down  hardware  and  battery  tray. Replace  worn  or  damaged  parts.    Remove  corrosion with a wire brush and/or wash with a weak solution of baking soda and water.  Rinse and dry.  Repaint parts if needed to prevent rusting. Make  sure  no  foreign  objects  such  as  stones,  bolts, nuts,   etc.,   which   could   damage   battery   are   left   in battery tray. INSTALLATION When   replacing   the   battery,   make   sure   that   battery   to   be installed    has    sufficient    capacity    to    cover    the    electrical requirements of the vehicle.  Use of an under-capacity battery will result in poor performance and pre-mature battery failure. The  original  equipment  battery  can  be  used  as  a  minimal guide,  but  is  often  misleading  since  the  vehicle  owner  may have installed additional electrical accessories on the vehicle. Be sure battery is at full charge when installed. If the battery has been in storage for some time or if the installation is being made   in   subfreezing   temperatures,   the   battery   should   be given a boost charge before being installed. 1. Place  battery  in  battery  tray  with  terminals  in  proper position.  Battery should rest level in tray. 2. Install   battery   hold-down   hardware   and   tighten   until battery is firm and secure. CAUTION DO NOT overtighten battery hold-downs. Overtightening   could   damage   battery   resulting   in early failure. 3. Apply  a  light  coat  of  terminal  grease  (IH  part  number 472141-C1)  to  battery  and  cable  terminals  to  inhibit corrosion. 4. Connect  battery  cables  to  battery.    Check  for  proper battery polarity with respect to the vehicle.  "Reversed" polarity  may  cause  serious  damage  to  the  electrical system.  Connect ground cable last. Tighten terminal fasteners as follows: DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN. Side Terminals: 7-10 N-m (60-90 lb.in.  or 5-7 lb.ft.) Top Terminals: 13-20 N-m (10-15 lb.ft.) Taper Post Terminals: 5.5-8 N-m (50-60 lb.in.  or 4-6 lb.ft.) IMPORTANT New  batteries  must  be  coded  to  indicate  month  and year of installation.
