failing starter ? Read this to know why! 200 1992

Hi Phil,

With all due respect, it's clear to me and others of our age what you mean by 'Bendix Drive', but it might be confusing for others who may be working on their first starter.

The solenoid activated drive that is used on our Volvos is quite different from the drive invented by Vincent Bendix in 1915. Having replaced many broken springs and pinion gears over the years, as well as welding teeth back on flywheels, I can say I'm not sad to see the Bendix go the way of the Dodo. The solenoid drive is much longer lasting. I don't know who invented it, but I wish it was me.

regards,
Peter
