DESCRIPTION OF OPERATION
 

[Part1]     The gear box power control system 1 consist of three major assemblies.   (a.) 2 piece Centrifugal clutch assembly.  (b.) Cast housing 10 with all working parts, 3 spur gears, 2 shafts and the engager system all factory pre-installed.   (c.) Cast housing 11 referred to as the cover housing having two ball bearings factory installed.

[Part2]     Installation and operation as used on a Bicycle:   The gear box power control system 1 is attached to the engine by two long mounting bolts going through four hole lugs 26 in the cast housings 11 and 10 and two shorter bolts inside the gear box on cast housing 10 going through holes 26 approximately midway of cast housing 10.  Obviously the two shorter bolts in cast housing 10 approximately midway must be affixed first to the engine before the cover cast housing 11 is installed.  Therefore, this makes a four bolt mounting for the gear box power control system 1.

[Part3]     When the engine is operating above a specified rpm usually about 2000rpm the centrifugal clutch 12 engages the clutch integral bell housing and transmits engine torque through a series of spur gears in a train from gear 13 to gear 15, from gear 15 to gear 17 on the same shaft, and from gear 17 to the final drive gear 19 to the output drive sprocket.

[Part4]     Installation step one:  Install centrifugal clutch assembly 12 and bell housing with primary drive gear 13 to the engine output crankshaft 14.  

[Part5]     Installation step two:   Attach cast housing 10 with gear train and integral engager assembly factory pre-installed to a vertical single cylinder Honda GXH 50 or HuaSheng F142 4 cycle engine as shown in FIG. 7.  Cast housing 10 is placed over the centrifugal clutch assembly 12 and primary drive gear 13 by way of a large hole in cast housing 10 and is first held on by two short bolts going through holes 26 approximately midway of the cast housing into two corresponding threaded holes 25 on the engine.  Lubricate gears with heavy grease before installing cover.
[Part6]     Installation step three:   Attach the cover housing 11 having two ball bearings that line up with corresponding shaft 16 & jackshaft 18 in the cast housing 10.   The cast housing 11 is then tapped into position with a rubber mallet to fit tightly over the cast housing 10 in a recessed lip around the perimeter.   After cast housing 11 is in position two long bolts are inserted through the two left side lug mount holes 26 of both the cast housings 10 and 11 as shown in Fig. 8 and also extended into the threaded holes of the engine accessory drive mounting flange 25.  A single third shorter bolt is installed through hole 26 on the right side of the cast housings 10 & 11 as shown in Fig. 8 and all three bolts tighten securely in sequence.   The shift lever 22 with steel cable 8 attached going to hand lever 9 are preinstalled at the factory for ease of installation on the bike handle bar.   The Bike wheel drive chain can now be installed as required.

[Part7]     Operation sequencing:     Gear train spur gears 15, 17 operate on shaft and bearings 16, and the final drive spur gear 19 operates on a jackshaft with bearings 18.  The gear train is used to transmit power in a step down speed ratio.   A ball bearing supported output jackshaft 18 having final drive spur gear 19 which can rotate freely on a bronze bushing.   The final drive spur gear 19 has a small fixed position engagement gear 20 welded to it in centerline position and transmits power to the sliding engagement gear 21.  The engagement gear 21 slides on a long key inserted in a key way on the jackshaft 18 as shown on FIG. 4.  The sliding engagement gear 21 is moved by a pivoted lever 22 controlled by an external cable 8 and hand lever 9.  The shift lever 22 is made with twin half circular shaped fork arms having hole slots at the end of each arm that fit on a full circle ring 32 with buttons 30 located on the sliding engagement gear 21 and held on by a flange 33 secured with threads or a lock ring.  as shown on Fig. 9A.  Thusly, the shift lever can push and pull the sliding engager gear 21 to engagement or disengagement position.   A similar concept is used to push and pull a starter drive for engine ring gear engagement in an automotive DC electric cranking motor.
[Part8]     The small primary drive sprocket 23 used on the engager assembly jackshaft output end has an over running freewheel clutch.   Thus allowing freewheel operation in one direction and lockup in the opposite direction.  The primary drive sprocket can be ten tooth, to eleven tooth as required by the driven wheel work application requirement and size of engine used.  The WD distributor has the option of ordering a freewheel primary drive sprocket 23 or a non freewheel primary drive sprocket on the output jackshaft 18.   If a non freewheel sprocket is used on the jackshaft 18 then a freewheel can be located in the driven wheel axle of the intended work load application 7 shown in Fig. 1. The workload chain 5 is size 415.    A chain idler 6 provides chain tension adjustment for the drive chain 5.
[Part9]     The gear box power control system 1 shown in Fig. #1 has two operator controlled modes when the engine is running:   Open and closed:
Fig #4 shows engager in open position
[Part10]     Engager Open position with engine running:    When the operator has the cable control lever 9 in the unlocked open position the engager gears 20 and 21 have no contact with each other and no engine power is transmitted. The final drive spur gear 19 will spin freely on the jackshaft if the centrifugal clutch 12 is engaged.  If the work related wheel such as a bicycle rear wheel is turning, the output drive sprocket 23 will freewheel over run and the jackshaft of the gear box will not turn spur gear 19.   If the operator decides to re-engage the engine power to the closed position no matter if the vehicle is stopped or rolling and as long as the engine is in the low speed idle mode the transition coupling of engager gears 20 & 21 is made smoothly when the shift lever 22 is moved by the operator via lever 9 attached to control cable 8.  It should be noted that the angled teeth on both engagement gears 20 and 21 enhance smooth slide engagement.  Compression spring 34 holds the shift lever 22 in the open position thus keeping the engagement gear 21 in the open position.  The cable stop is 24 held on by bracket 28.   WARNING:  Do not engage the lever to closed position above engine idle speed.    Disengaging at high rpm is not a problem.

[Part11]     Engager Closed position with engine running:    When Engager gears 20 & 21 are in the closed engaged position with each other this allows engine power above centrifugal clutch engagement rpm to travel via centrifugal clutch 12 to affixed spur gear 13 thus turning spur gears 15, 17 and 19 simultaneously.  Spur gears 15, 17 and 19 operate on dual ball bearing supported shafts called out by 16 and 18 on FIG. 2.  The fixed engager gear 20 attached to final drive gear 19 when closed with engager gear 21 turns the jackshaft 18 via the key or spines it rides on thereby rotating output sprocket 23 in the locked rational direction thus driving chain 5 .   The shift lever 22 holds the engagement gears 20 & 21 in the closed position due to the steel cable being locked closed by lever 9 and held in lock position by detent if an optional twist handle is used and by a push button catch if a lever is used.   The cable stop is 24 held on by bracket 28.

[Part12]     If the vehicle is stopped the operator can adjust carburetor air fuel mixture settings at both idle and high rpm without worry of the work related wheel 7 turning.  If need be in an emergency such as a centrifugal clutch 12 failure to disengage at low rpm or a work related wheel bearing failure or flat tire occurring the operator can quickly disengage engine power via the engager control cable 8 and lever 9 thus disengaging the coupling of engagement gears 20 & 21 so enabling the engine to disconnect from the drive chain 5.

[Part13]     Engine off, not running:     The gear box power control system should be left in the open position when engine is off or not running in preparation for the next engine start cycle.  The freewheel sprocket 23 on the engager jackshaft 18 will freewheel should the work related wheel be turning by means other than engine power such as would be case if pushing the vehicle or people pedaling a bicycle or pedaling a pedal wheel boat in the normal vehicle operational manual mode.    Ref. Figure. #10

Fig. #10.  Special Gear box Output Drive sprocket with freewheel mechanism:

[Part14]     Spur gears 13, 15, 17 and 19 are lubricated with grease for efficient operation and noise reduction.  Slight noise may be noticed when first used but will begin to run more quite as the gears begin to wear in.   The four ball bearings used on 2 gear shafts and are the sealed type with high temperature grease.  Centrifugal clutch 12 is a dry clutch operation.

 Install tank on top tube of the bike frame and hook up gas line from tank valve to carburetor inlet.
Install engager optional twist handle or standard push button lever on left side handlebar;


Install throttle cable to carburetor and throttle handle;
Some engines differ in this area so field modification may be required on the part of the installing mechanic.

Test Start engine without chain installed and tune rpm to optimum condition; To start: set choke; and open air cleaner baffle lever and pull on rope: After starting progressively remove choke and let warm up. After test starting, kill the engine and proceed to complete installation process.

Install 415 drive chain around gear box output drive sprocket and around chain wheel sprocket.      
Make chain as short as possible and install master link on outboard side of gear box drive sprocket.   

(  See warning note on page 4 about master link; ) 

New style chain idler with ball bearing supported pulley wheel:

Adjust chain tension with chain idler fastened on bike wheel strut.  At middle span adjust to ¼ “ deflection up and down.  Chain idler can be used on pedal chain side if desired.

Before riding Re-Start engine with bike rear wheel in elevated and check chain and wheel alignment throughout the engine rpm range.  Check engager for smooth in and out operation.   Shift engager in only when engine is at idle rpm.  Shifting out can be done at any rpm.

Installing a bike mid frame wheel stand is recommend; Optional accessory;

Engine Starting and Operation:

NOTE:   Refer to engine owner’s manual included with the engine and follow  starting and operational instructions.

 

Note:  On some China made engines the crankcase screw head on the right side of the flange opening must be modified so it does not hit the GruBee gear box at the #16 bearing pocket boss area.   To modify, delete the lock washer and file off 1mm from the top of the screw head to gain 2mm total clearance.   After installing the gear box check for air gap clearance with a flash light or paper insert. This problem does not seem to occur when using Honda GXH50 engines but always check for clearance after gear box installation.   ( Do not grind on the gear box bearing boss: )
