O'Conor Sloane and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at The dynamo should turn in the same direction that it would turn when being driven by the engine. If it motors successfully, test to see if the dynamo generates. To do this, remove the two wires from the battery and connect them to a dc voltmeter. Leave all other connections unchanged. Now spin the dynamo to see if there is an output. The dynamo is a robust and simple type of generator which was fitted to many earlier cars. Most modern cars are fitted with an alternator. If you suspect a fault in the dynamo, check all the connections to it with a circuit tester. Check also that the dynamo actually turns when the engine is running, and that the drive belt is adjusted to its correct tension, and is not slipping (See Checking.

If the light comes on and stays on, check the fan belt (See Testing a dynamo and checking output). If the problem is in the brushes or armature, remove the dynamo for further checks and, possibly, repairs. Checks are made easier if the dynamo is clamped securely in a vice pad the vice jaws with wood so that the unit is not damaged. To check the brushes on most modern dynamos, remove the. The other option is to ‘motor’ the dynamo; I haven’t covered this on my blog yet (always meant to!) but have a search on the web and you should find something. Basically you connect the dynamo up to a suitable battery and it should spin like a motor (a dynamo and motor are basically the same thing but connected the opposite way round).   Another test.. Motor Test I have found that this test is not definitive. The dynamo may "motor" but this doesn't mean it will produce power, when it's on the bike (I know this as it happened to me) However, it is a useful test for determining which way the dynamo will rotate. There is a little arrow on the case, but it's always good to check. See what's new with book lending at the Internet Archive. In the Internet Archive has seen unprecedented use—and we need your help.
