the slide hammer rod (2) if necessary, and
place the slide hammer (7) on top of the slide
hammer rod. Slide down until it rests on the
striker plate (1). Attach nut (4) to the top of
the slide hammer rod. Tighten to the end of
(c) While holding in a vertical position, lift the
slide hammer (7). Slide it downward to drive
the ground rod section (6) into the ground.
Continue driving the ground rod section (6)
until approximately 4 inches (10 centimeters)
remains above ground level.
(d) Disconnect the slide hammer assembly (8)
from the ground rod coupler (5).
(e) Attach the ground rod section (6) to the
ground rod coupler (5). Attach another
ground rod coupler (5) to the top of a new
ground rod section (6). Connect the slide
hammer assembly (8) to the new ground rod
(f) Repeat steps (c), (d) and (e) until at least 8
feet (2.4 meters) of ground rod is buried.
Disconnect nut (4), and remove the slide
hammer (7) from the slide hammer assembly
(8). Disconnect the top ground rod coupler
(g) Connect a clamp (9) to top of the ground rod
and reconnect the ground rod coupler (5).
Connect loose end of the ground wire
assembly to the clamp. Tighten the clamp
screw (10). Ensure that all ground wire
connections are tight.
g. Connecting Remote Control Module. The
remote control module can be located up to
1000 feet (300 m) from the generator set.
Refer to FO-14 and FO-9 for interconnecting
information. Allow at least 3 feet (91 cm) in
front and behind module for access during
maintenance. Refer to par. 2-10.
h. Connecting Automatic Control Module. Refer
to FO-15 for interconnecting diagram. Refer
to par. 2-11.
4-4. EQUIPMENT CONVERSION.
a. To convert generator set output voltage from
120/280V AC to 240/416V AC, refer to figure
4-8 and proceed as follows:
When making any electrical connections,
make sure that the MAINTENANCE LOCKOUT
switch is in the MAINTENANCE position.
(1) Unscrew fasteners on reconnection box cover
and lift cover to obtain access to the movable
(2) Remove attaching hardware and adjust
jumper bars for low wye, 120/208V AC (A,
figure 4-8) or high wye, 240/416V AC (B,
figure 4-8) configuration.
(3) Securely reinstall attaching hardware and
close reconnection box cover.
b. To convert generator set from 50 to 60 Hz,
move the FREQUENCY SELECTOR switch
(4, figure 2-3) to the desired position. Also, if
using the automatic control module switch the
frequency select switch to the corresponding
