GENERATOR REPLACEMENT (650 AMPERE)
The cradle and bracket must serve two purposes; they must support the
generator and align the drive spline. Perform the following procedure
carefully to assure compliance. Failure to comply may lead to oil leaks at the
adapter plate and damage to generator drive.
9. Attach cradle (24) to bracket (21) using two
screws (22) with flat washers (23). Snug
tighten just enough so that both pieces can be
adjusted during installation.
10. Position bracket (21), ground straps (7) and
cradle (24) against oil pan and secure using
four screws (25, 27) with flat washers (26) as
illustrated. Tap cradle and bracket upwards
and inwards lightly with a plastic hammer to
assure seating against the generator and oil
pan while alternately tightening two cradle
screws (22) and four bracket screws (25, 27).
11. Check seating of generator (28) to cradle (24) and alignment of generator (28) to mounting
a. Check seating of generator to cradle with a 0.002 feeler gauge. If gauge can be inserted at
any point between cradle and generator; reseating is required.
b. Loosen V-band clamp (30) and move aside.
c. Using feeler gauge, check gap between generator (28) and drive adapter plate (31). More
than 0.010-inch gap at any point requires realignment.
d. Install V-band clamp (30) and tighten to 50 inch-pounds (6 Nm) torque.
