GENERAL INFORMATION

Accumulator

The accumulator is unattended.

Generator

The generator does not demand service, except periodic check of a tension of a maple belt of a drive.

In case of a battery charging on the car from the additional power supply it is necessary to disconnect from its plugs of a wire of the electric equipment of the car. Thus, the rectifier of the generator which is very sensitive to a high voltage or erroneous connection of a source of a current is protected from damage.


Prevention

It is not necessary to disconnect the accumulator in the course of operation of the engine. It is impossible to apply the rectifier of big capacity to engine start also.
