I think so too, a clutch...

Old Family story.....I was near age 10 and getting interested in shit, and so one day when in the car with the folks, must have been on the way to church or coming home.....I asked what dad's first car was, He being born in 1905, so he says a T Ford, I asked what was after that, as I remember a gray interior to the car we were in, which had to have been dad's last Packard.....I was wondering why he switched companies.....he said a Chevrolet......I asked why he switched from Ford to Chevy, he glanced at mom, and he winced, and she snickered in laughter.....

what it was was the crank snapped back on him and broke his wrist, or at least severely sprained it....

Cleveland Ohio, west side, around time my sis was born....

I would have to assume the unspoken, that he switched because Chebby had the Kettering invention of the decade....the electric starter motor......

Which goes into another comment, I find the entire topic of inventions and industrial history to be the ONLY true history worth studying , all the bullshit they teach in schools is a total time waste, to trace the development stages of all the great toys is much more interesting, and important to understand how shit WORKS in order to ensure a certain survival rate for the future.....but NO, they teach 'Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492,' untill the cows come home....sorry to get political....

Model T clutches are both bands in the tranny and some plates that look like they came out of a TH350.

Wasn't it some sort of magneto type deal, magnets and a coil in the bell, providing juice to spark the cyls? Basically a big magneto??? Gotta dig out that book, I think it was in there. But what they are building there is the flywheel with the magnets, I'm 99.99999% certain that's what it is.
