The howacarworks link above actually labels the spiral flutes of a bendix drive!!

You could just call them inertia and pre-engaged starters

Just two minor points which may be of interest.
1- the starter RID24 describes is what we know as the " co - axial " starter. It is non pre engage ,has no external solenoid etc. And was widely used on industrial forklifts/ shovels etc, where space was at a premium.The CAV unit was the most popular make and widely used in the 60/70,s
2- The Lucas M 45/50 starter motors referred to earlier were so called from the external diameter of the armature housing when measured in inches.Thus the M45 as fitted to the 770 up to the 1212had a 4.5 inch diameter and the M50 as fitted to the 1410/12 had a 5.0 inch diameter.
Finally , Lucas never verbally referred to these units as "starter motors" ,it was always "cranking motors" Their logic being that their basic function was to crank the engine .If it started that was a bonus unrelated to cranking . AJK.

The intertia/bendix/co-axial starter was also widely used on cars of the same era and earlier. Seen a few shot flywheels thanks to the battering the inertia starters give them.
