ENGINE DIVISION SERVICE MANUAL
Heavy duty, enclosed shift lever type starting motors-
are designed to protect the shift lever and solenoid
plunger from dirt, road splash and icing conditions.
The nose housing can be rotated to obtain a number
of different solenoid positions with respect to the
mounting flange, which permits a variety of mounting
NOTE: Be sure to mark the location of the nose housing
in some manner to assure proper location of nose
housing-to-lever housing upon reassembly of starting
Either the intermediate duty or the heavy duty
overrunning type sprag clutches may be used on the
heavy duty starting motors with the enclosed shift lever.
Both types of clutches are shifted into mesh with the
flywheel ring gear by action of the solenoid. When the
drive pinion is engaged with the fly-wheel, the pinion will
not be permitted to disengage until the engine has
started and the solenoid circuit is interrupted.
Some of the heavy duty starting motors feature a
seal between the shaft and lever housing, and all of the
heavy duty starting motors with the enclosed shift lever
have a rubber boot or linkage seal over the solenoid
plunger. These seals prevent the entry of dirt and oil into
the motor main frame.
