A gas-driven turbine starter (10) is provided with a slip clutch comprised of a radially inner portion (58,70) which is rotatable relative to the starter housing (14); and a radially outer portion (54,68) which is connected to the housing so as to be rotationally stationary relative thereto. This arrangement functionally separates the slip clutch from the power train, and provides for reduced wear of clutch discs.
1. A gas turbine starter comprising in combination: a housing; a turbine rotor including a rotor shaft, the rotor being secured in the housing for rotational movement; a circumferentially spaced plurality of gears captured by a circumferentially extending gear carrier disposed in the housing; the gears being engaged with the rotor shaft to receive torque therefrom; the carrier being secured to the housing so as to be rotatable relative thereto; an output shaft projecting from the housing and mounted thereon for rotational movement; the output shaft...
