German term or phrase: Antriebsglocke
This is the name of a part, it is not used in a sentence and I know from an internal dictionary that the "Antriebs" part stands for differential. So it would be something like a "differential-clock" but somehow it doesn't sound right. The part is round with a hole in the middle.
