Mallory B - Eliminators: The following are the specifications for the new Mallory Auto - Radio B eliminators.
When checking these eliminators for servicing, never connect the eliminator to a storage battery until there is a load resistor connected across the B mintis to B plus terminals of the eliminator. If the storage battery is lingrounded, that is, is not in the car, then connect the A plus terminal to eliminator terin inal 1, and the A minus terminal to the eliminator terminal 2, using not smaller than No. 14 B and Swire. When testing the eliminator. the load resistor should be rated at 6000 ohms and 25 watts. While it is true that a in - watt resistor is within the actual current rating, the 25 - watt resistor is preferred. Resistances rated at less than in watts, will overheat very badly. The 6000 ohm load resistance is the equivalent of the aver age radio receiver.
