Vibratory Electrical Circuit
The vibratory system is engaged by pressing the ON/OFF
control switch (button) on the propel control lever. The
vibratory system does not operate unless the control switch for
the throttle is in the HIGH position and the speed range switch
is in the LOW position.
The vibratory system does not engage.
The vibratory fuse is open.
Vibratory ON/OFF control has failed in the open
The speed range switch has failed.
The switch for the throttle control has failed.
The switch for the vibratory amplitude control has failed.
The vibratory control solenoid has failed.
An open circuit exists in the harness for the vibratory
