Now since we have a few pics to look at and view, I am going to refer to the "subject matter" of the current invention just to reiterate the importance of identifying each article of subject matter within the present invention. After you compare the Fig.(s) 3 and 16 these are the actual notes that are exact duplicates out of the inventors outline, prior to the provisional patent being written upon the Manmotor of the present invention.
Subject Matter (outline one/view one ) :
In this view the inventor simply identifies the subject matter within his or her invention, and this example is a really good one. Fig.(s) 3 and 16 represent a variable sheave assembly which are substantially identical in the Fig.(s) as illustrated with one slight change in position of the pressure plate element.

The third articles of "Subject Matter" within the present invention are embodied and referring to Fig. 1 and in specific 3.6. and now referring to Fig. 16 and in specific 137. 140. whereas 3. and 137. comprise one element as viewed in Fig. 3. and this element is a variable circumference sheave assembly and if Fig. 1 is viewed very carefully the startup position of this element 3. is embodied and can be viewed within Fig. 3 in specific the distance between pressure plate 28. and friction surface 25. . As load resistance is felt between the friction plate 25. and the pressure plate 28. the two plates in relation to one another move apart and the distance between the plates increases allowing the drive belt to move to a smaller circumference area as the biasing spring 29. is compressing.
Now remember in the first outline of identified subject matter, the inventor has established an order of importance in his mind of where it is within the invention as far as importance in assembly and actual operating facts. Since we have eight forms of subject matter within the present invention this variable sheave to me was article three at the time the view one notes were drafted for the present invention Manmotor.
Subject Matter ( Outline two/view two ) :
Date Note : January 20, 2009 Tracking assigned : MM01209F
Subject matter articles three of outline one now become article two of outline two, and remember now this is a view from the least significant and a description evaluation of the subject matter involved. This variable sheave assembly has been used for years over and over within the field of mechanical art and a couple examples are the John Deere Gator uses one on the transmission and also many other belt transmissions of same art, however this particular application show some distinct features. The element together produce a variable diameter sheave assembly that reacts to resistance in a conventional way. As resistance between the two rotating elements becomes greater, sheve diameter on the drive belt surface becomes less and as the resistance between the two plate elements becomes less the sheave diameter becomes greater in this application of the present invention. The novelty is that the two elements of rotation in one embodiment remain seperated and are rotatably attached to one another, each having it's own seperate function, and to function as a claimed clutch pressure plate assembly utilyzing a designed cut of rubber cloth for the friction element. The other rotating element of the embodiment is a pressure plate which is free to rotate in respect to the third element which is the frictional surface, the three elements are detached from one another. Other devices reviewed that operate similarly have two elements but are keyed together and that the rubber cloth composite friction element of the present invention Manmotor is also used as a connecting source to other sheave assemblies, which is commonly referred to as a industrial belt in most other applications of prior art within the field of variable sheave devices.

Overview report for the variable sheave, and where it fits in the present invention regarding and in comparison to the other seven forms of subject matter used in this application of the present invention Manmotor, falls in at number five. This variable sheave is exampled and is a friction plate/pressure plate variable diameter sheave and is embodied in Fig.(s) 1 and in specific 3. and 6.Fig. 3 and in Fig. 14 and in specific 137. and 140. also in Fig.(s) 13-15-16.
These notes and views are really important for you as an inventor to really have alot written about and clearly understand the bottom line in inventing, identifying exactly what your invention actually is and what specific art form you will have searched and then have placed your invention in. Like for example the entire Manmotor of the present invention as viewed in Fig. 1 , theres a lot there to get confused about until you have broken each art form that your invention consists of down to it's most specific function in real life, and then clarify it within the invention Patent Application.
