  • Patent number: 8069740
    Abstract: A screw mounting hole and a female screw part are formed in a bearing part of a gear cover, and the screw insertion hole is formed in the idle shaft. The idle shaft is fixed to the gear cover by inserting a fixing screw through the screw mounting hole and screwing it into the female screw part through the screw insertion hole. A positioning groove in a predetermined position in relation to the screw insertion hole is formed in the end face of the idle shaft. When the positioning groove is disposed perpendicularly to an engine mounting surface and the idle shaft is fitted to the gear cover, the screw mounting hole is opposed to the screw insertion hole and, when the fixing screw is fitted, the confirmation of hole positions and the aligning of holes can be eliminated.

  • Publication number: 20100013334
    Abstract: In a starter having a motor comprising a rear bracket 23 mounted to a cylindrical motor housing opening portion, flanges 23a protruding outward from the outer circumferential portion 23c of the rear bracket and set bolts mounted to the flanges 23a and located on the outside of the motor housing, the rear bracket 23 is formed sphere-like with the inner side of the motor being convex and the central portion of the rear bracket is expanded toward the inner side of the motor compared with the outer circumferential portion 23c thereof. Even if the rear bracket 23 is subjected to impact due to “Kicking back”, the influence of the impact force is relaxed by the central portion displaced inward in advance and the rear bracket 23 is effectively prevented from being lifted up due to “Kicking back” in spite of an outer bolt type configuration.
