Re: Reverse gear - explanation please
There is no overload clutch. The reverser controller senses transmission gear speed and sends an appropriate voltage (less that the full 12V) to the starter motor to operate reverse. There is nothing but gears between the motor and the outputshaft of the transmission (I just had one apart for replacement of the input shaft bearing). It is hard to hear the motor running when the engine is running and up idled to reverse.
