Electric Starter System


The electric starter system is made up of the starter relay, starter solenoid, and starter motor. The starter drive gear engages a geared limiter assembly which engages a starter ring gear whose hub rotates inside a ball clutch on the rotor assembly.

The rotation of the starter is transferred to the crankshaft of the engine through the ball clutch. The starter motor torque is multiplied through the gear reduction of the starter drive gear to the limiter assembly gear and to the starter ring gear. The three gears remain in constant engagement.
