been disturbed. In any case, the manufacturer's di-
rections should be followed.
e. Performance check. Upon completion of repair
work, complete performance tests should be made
on the relay, even though the work done may not
appear to affect relay operation. It is possible that
during repair, other adjustments or alignment of
relay parts may have been changed or affected. Af-
ter an overhaul, the tests made should not be less
thorough than the relay's original acceptance tests.
