sufficient amount of the appropriate oil or fluid.
10-220.127.116.11 Phase rotation should be determined before the old bank is removed, and
before the new three-phase bank of pole-type transformers is installed, check voltage
and phase rotation as well as the nomenclature plate.
10-11.4.4 Only qualified climbers must be allowed to climb poles to inspect and test
pole-type transformers. Never stand on or otherwise contact transformer cases.
