ELECTRICAL GROUND POINTS
Many electrical problems are the result of poor ground connection. You can ensure that ground
connections are good by performing the following steps:
Although battery ground cable must be connected in order
to test electrical circuit voltage, disconnect battery ground
cable from prime mover before performing resistance tests
or replacing parts. This will prevent shock to personnel, and
damage to parts and equipment.
a. Remove hardware connecting ground cable terminal lug to ground point.
b. Clean mounting hardware, ground cable terminal lugs, and ground point with dry cleaning
Remove any rust with wire brush (item 2, WP 0085).
d. Look for cracks, loose terminal lugs, and stripped threads. Replace any defective parts.
e. Install hardware connecting ground cable terminal lug to ground point. Ensure that all
hardware is tight.
