The present invention is directed to a spring energized cage centering device for a bi-directional overrunning clutch. The clutch includes an inner race, an outer race, and a cage disposed between them. A biasing member is disposed between a cavity formed in the outer periphery of the inner race and a pocket formed in the inner periphery of the cage which permits rotational movement between the inner race and the cage, but rotationally biases the cage with respect to the inner race toward a neutral position. In one preferred embodiment, the cavity extends through the centerpoint of the inner race to form two openings in the inner race, the biasing member extending through the cavity and radially outwardly from the openings to engage the cage at two different circumferential locations.
