Effect of Application on Maintenance of Automotive Electrical Equipment 380167
MR. CRITCHFIELD attacks the problem of securing automotive electrical equipment that will operate satisfactorily at the lowest original as well as upkeep cost.
Integral parts of the electrical supply system, the ignition system and the cranking system are discussed with notes on maintenance of each. Particular attention is given to the various items which affect the sizes and types of equipment necessary. Mr. Critchfield points out that misapplications from both the capacity and operation standpoints are often the source of the most serious maintenance problems, and he gives specific examples to illustrate.
In the tables accompanying the paper the author presents application charts to serve as a rough guide in considering the purchase of new equipment.
