What is the purpose of an overrunning clutch in a starter drive?

With the flywheel spinning at about 1,000 RPM at idle, the starter, if engaged with the flywheel, would be forced to spin between 15,000 and 20,000 RPM. Once the engine has turned over and is running, the overrun clutch will release the starter from the flywheel and prevent the gears from re-meshing (as in an accidental turning of the ignition key) while the engine is running


How does a car starter work?

A car starter is an electric motor that is used to turn the engine over in order to get it started. The motor is powered by the car battery (Typically 12 Volts) The motor turns the engine by engaging the flywheel (cog) by one or other of two means. 1/ The turning action of the motor pushes a gear into the flywheel. 2/ A solenoid attached to the motor pushes in the connecting gear. After the engine starts the gear disengages.

Is it likely that a frontal collision will cause motor mounts to break?

Yes, the car is usually designed to do so. In a frontal crash, the vehicle's engine/motor mounts break so that the engine can drop to the ground and basically the car can move over top of the engine without it bypassing the firewall and injuring passengers.


My John Deere LA130 automatic won't start The starter clicks like it wants to start I have tried charging the battery and checked for loose connectionsThe mower is 3 years old?

Sometimes the engine will stop at tdc(top dead center). Remove the round plastic cover (4 bolts) over the fan and flywheel. Turn the fan by hand a little bit and try starter. If this is the problem the engine will turn via the starter.

99 Honda missing teeth on flywheel what happens?

When and if the engine stops at the point where the starter gear is aligned with the missing teeth the starter will just spin and not start the engine. Over time even if the starter turns the engine over it will eventually ruin the starter. You need to replace the flywheel and the starter immediately.


What causes a riding mower engine to overheat?

Using it too much or overloading it. Improvement, Using the engine too much will certainly not cause over heating. The most likely cause for the over heating is a clogged cooling shroud. Remove the top engine cover that surrounds the flywheel and remove the grass and debris. Mice love to make nests under those engine covers as well. Kevin

How can you tell a bad flywheel on a 1992 camaro?

Pull the starter motor so you can see the flywheel. Make a chalk mark on the flywheel. Have someone turn the engine over by hand while you watch the flywheel turn one revolution. Look at the gear teeth and watch up in there for flexing and cracks and see that the bolts are all tight.


Does the starter turn over the timing chain?

The starter turns the flywheel at the back of the engine. When the flywheel turns the whole engine turns. The timing chain is on the other end at the front of the engine. It is connected to the crankshaft and camshaft (s). So indirectly yes it does. If the whole engine is turned but the timing chain doesn't, there is a problem. Probably a broken timing chain.
