2. Find the bottom (C) of a phase difference of the wave-plate, zero the dial indicator and make a reference mark on the bottom of the wave-plate.

3. Rotate the wave-plate about 60-degrees apart from the bottom while holding the wave-plate by its circumference. The dial indicator should be at the top (D) of a phase difference. Do not rotate the wave-plate while holding its surface, always rotate it with holding its circumference.

4. Read the dial indicator. The dial indicator reads the phase difference (E) of the wave-plate between bottom and top.

Standard Phase Difference:
1st clutch: 0.15-0.25 mm (0.006-0.010 in.)
2nd clutch: 0.1-0.2 mm (0.004-0.008 in.)

4th clutch: 0.1-:0.2 mm (0.004-0.008 in.)
5th clutch: 0.1-0.2 mm (0.004-0.008 in.)

5. Rotate the wave-plate about 60-degrees. The dial indicator should be at the bottom of a phase difference (F and G), and zero the dial indicator.

G. Measure the phase difference at the other two tops (H and I) of the wave-plate by following steps 3 thru 5.

7. If the two values of the three measurements are within the standard, the wave-plate is OK. If the two values of the three measurements are out of the standard, replace the wave-plate.
