This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ...motor, the three rollers are bound between the clutch body and the ratchet member carrying them and the crankshaft is driven until such time as the engine speed increases sufficiently to overrun that of the member attached to the crankshaft. Tig. 296.--Showing Interconnection between Starting Switch and Intermediate Pinion of Delco System. Overrunning clutches are not necessary in those systems in which the gears are moved into engagement, as in that shown at Fig. 296. In this the starting switch and the double shifting member, GH, are mechanically interconnected so that the starting switch will not be completely engaged until gearing is in mesh. The lcrger gear H of the sliding members meshes with that on the armature shaft, while the smaller of the pair, G, meshes with the flywheel. The arrangement of the parts outlined is used on the Cole car. In the Hartford starting motor, which is shown at Fig 297, A, the clutch is of the friction type and is engaged automatically when the energy is passed through the motor winding to produce movement of the engine crankshaft. The reduction between the starting motor arid the crankshaft is made by a worm and worm gear. When the switch pedal is depressed and the switch blades go into contact the same movement produces pressure on the end of the lever attached to R R, which transmits a strong pull on the friction clutch and thus connects the motor to the starting gear. The Ward Leonard combination is shown at Fig. 297, B. In this the motor is carried above the generator, and but one driving gear is needed to operate both the generator and to enable the starting motor to turn over the engine crankshaft. The speed reduction is by an intermediate gear shaft, the general operation being the same as that of the...show more
