8.3.3.8. Check of the condenser

The condenser serves for protection of the electronic equipment of the car against tension impulses in system of ignition, and also for decrease in hindrances to radio reception.
Damage of the condenser or weakening of its fastening on the generator (deterioration in contact with weight) is found on increase in hindrances to radio reception at the working engine.
Approximately serviceability of the condenser can be checked the megohm meter or a tester (on a scale of 1-10 megohms). If in the condenser there is no break, then at the time of connection of probes of the device to conclusions of the condenser of the shooter has to will deviate towards reduction of resistance, and then to return gradually back.
The condenser capacity measured by the special device has to be 2,2 мкФ ±20%.
