The ratio between the number of teeth on the starter
motor pinion gear and the engine flywheel is
1 to 1.
1 to 5.

1 to 50.
The basic purpose of the overrunning clutch in the
starter drive is to:
assist the solenoid during cranking.
pull the starter pinion gear out of mesh.
disengage the armature when the engine starts.
keep the hold-in winding energized during
clutch safety switch is:
located in the motor feed circuit.
closed when the clutch pedal is pressed all the way to
in series with the control circuit.

starter over-running clutch.
An open fault in the hold-in winding of a starter
solenoid switch will most likely cause:
the battery to run down.
the solenoid to move in and out, or chatter.
the starter drive to remain engaged after the engine
excessively high current draw from tthe starter .
If the engine cranks too slow to start, the problem may
be caused by:
a faulty neutral start switch.
an open relay in the control circuit.
a damaged pinion gear.
If the starter spins but does not crank the engine, the
likely cause would be:
a bad overrunning clutch.
a bad solenoid.
high resistance in the motor feed circuit.
high resistance in the motor control circuit.
All of the following can cause noisy starter motor
misalignment of the starter motor.
damaged or worn flywheel ring gear.
When performing a starter current draw test, high current
draw usually indicates:
a discharged battery.
battery terminal corrosion.
engine problems or a bad starter
A starter current draw test indicates lower than
specified cranking speed and current. The next step
replace the starter solenoid, it is defective.
run a voltage drop test of B+ and ground cables.

to use the 9.6 volt drop test for a tight engine.
Cranking circuit voltage drop tests are used to
bad starter drive units.

A test light shows that voltage is not being applied to a
starter solenoid "S" Terminal with the ignition switch
turned to the start position. Technician A says the
ignition switch could be bad. Technician B says the
neutral safety switch could be bad. Who is
Technician A only.
Technician B only.
both Technician A and Technician B.
neither Technician A nor Technician B.
With the engine cranking, a 4-volt drop is measured
across the starter insulated (B+) battery cable. What
should be done?
nothing, this voltage drop is acceptable.
install a larger battery.
replace the cable or clean and tighten the
charge the battery.
When the starting motor will not crank the engine or
cranks it too slowly, the first thing to check is the
wiring and cables.
When testing the starting system on a vehicle with a
six-cylinder engine, you find that the engine cranks
slowly, the starter current draw is 80 amps, and the
battery voltage during cranking is 11.5 volts. What
should you do next?
check the voltage drop of the starter motor
test the battery capacity.
replace the starter motor.
check the engine.
When checking the starting motor's insulation
the higher the voltage reading, the better.
the lower the voltage reading, the better.
both a and b.
neither a nor b.
The voltage drop on the insulated side of the starter
motor circuit should be no more than.
21. A starter on
a vehicle is to be tested for current draw while cranking the engine.
Technician A says the batterys state-of-charge and
capacity must be tested before a valid starter test can be performed.
Technician B says that if a battery has less than a 75%
charge (specific gravity 1.230 or less) it cannot be used for a starter
current draw test. Who is correct?
replace Technician A only.
Technician B only.
Both Technicians A and B.
Neither Technicians A nor B.
