I'm having trouble understanding this. Does this vehicle use a starter motor to turn the flywheel attached to the crankshaft and once the engine is running the flywheel becomes the armature for the generator? I'm having trouble understanding the part where the flywheel is part of the starter .
I know of a older vehicle that uses the flywheel as a " armature" In the electrical system.
