    75. 75. TECH TIP <ul><li>Don ’t Hit That Starter! </li></ul><ul><ul><li>In the past, it was common to see service technicians hitting a starter in their effort to diagnose a no-crank condition. Often the shock of the blow to the starter aligned or moved the brushes, armature, and bushings. Many times, the starter functioned after being hit, even if only for a short time. </li></ul></ul>BACK TO PRESENTATION <ul><li>However, most starters today use permanent magnet fields, and the magnets can be easily broken if hit. A magnet that is broken becomes two weaker magnets. Some early PM starters used magnets that were glued or bonded to the field housing. </li></ul><ul><li>If struck with a heavy tool, the magnets could be broken with parts of the magnet falling onto the armature and into the bearing pockets, making the starter impossible to repair or rebuild. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Figure 52-19 This starter permanent magnet field housing was ruined when someone used a hammer on the field housing in an attempt to &quot;fix&quot; a starter that would not work. A total replacement is the only solution in this case. </li></ul></ul>
    76. 76. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION <ul><li>What Is a Bendix? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Older-model starters often used a Bendix drive mechanism, which used inertia to engage the starter pinion with the engine flywheel gear. Inertia is the tendency of a stationary object to remain stationary, because of its weight, unless forced to move. </li></ul></ul>? BACK TO PRESENTATION <ul><li>On these older-model starters, the small starter pinion gear was attached to a shaft with threads, and the weight of this gear caused it to be spun along the threaded shaft and mesh with the flywheel whenever the starter motor spun. If the engine speed was greater than the starter speed, the pinion gear was forced back along the threaded shaft and out of mesh with the flywheel gear. </li></ul><ul><li>The Bendix drive mechanism has generally not been used since the early 1960s, but some technicians use this term when describing a starter drive. </li></ul>
    77. 77. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION <ul><li>How Are Starters Made So Small? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Starters and most components in a vehicle are being made as small and as light in weight as possible to help increase vehicle performance and fuel economy. </li></ul></ul>? BACK TO PRESENTATION <ul><li>A starter can be constructed smaller due to the use of gear reduction and permanent magnets to achieve the same cranking torque as a straight drive starter, but using much smaller components. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Figure 52-26 A palm-size starter armature. </li></ul></ul>
