MAINTENANCE OF STARTER MOTORS 81 AND B2 AND ELECTRICAL SOLENOIDS B1L3 AND B2L4.
Starter motors are used to rotate engine until combustion occurs.
To avoid death or injury to personnel, no electrical component will be worked on
while energized. Ensure equipment is "tagged out" in accordance with Chapter 1,
Section III of this manual and equipment is NOT energized. Residual voltage is
present at the generator leads with the regulator turned off, reaching SEVERAL
HUNDRED VOLTS on the generator set. Proper insulation and isolation of
metering equipment must be observed when testing this generator. USE PROPER
TEST EQUIPMENT TO CHECK FOR VOLTAGE before proceeding with work.
Remove. See figure 4-32.
Disconnect battery power.
Tag and disconnect wiring from electrical solenoids L3 and L4 (1) and starter motors B1 and B2, and
starter slave relays K1 and K2.
Figure 4-32. Starter Motor Assembly
Remove starter motors from flywheel housing by removing machine bolts, washers, and lock
washers. Remove bottom starter first to gain access to starter bolts. Starter slave relays K1 and/or
K2 will also come free with their brackets.
Test. Testing of the starter motor and electrical solenoid assembly consists of a no-load test of the
complete unit followed by a pinion clearance check and adjustment. Before conducting the no-load test check the
armature for freedom of rotation. Use a screw driver to turn the pinion on the exposed drive assembly in the drive
housing. Tight bearings bent armature shaft, or a loose pole shoe screw will cause armature binding. If the armature
does not turn freely, replace the starter. If the armature rotates freely, conduct the no-load test below.
