Description:
This device known as the "Bendix drive" is the starter. The starting motor is attached to the left end of shaft. As the starting pedal is pushed, the motor starts the shaft at a high speed, sending the small gear in mesh with the teeth on the fly wheel. The spring absorbs the starting shock. This starts the engine which soon picks up speed so that the fly wheel revolves faster than the small gear. This action causes the small gear, still meshed with it, to rotate on the threads of the starting shaft, now slowing down, and throws it back to its first position and out of mesh with the fly wheel. [Virginia Downward & William M. Clark, 1930] [Editorís Note: ??? FCM]
