Starter Drive

The Starter Drive, also known as the Bendix drive, is another crucial component of a vehicle’s starter system.

It is responsible for engaging the starter motor with the engine’s flywheel or flexplate, allowing the starter to turn the engine over and initiate the combustion process.
The Starter Drive consists of a gear mechanism that meshes with the teeth on the flywheel or flexplate.

When the starter is activated, the Starter Drive extends and engages with the flywheel or flexplate, allowing the starter motor to transfer rotational power to the engine.

Once the engine starts, the Starter Drive disengages to prevent damage. It’s a clever mechanism that ensures a smooth and efficient engine start-up.
