That was a very good film on the fluid coupling(torque converter) functions.:tu:tu:tuThanks for posting.
I thought the guy with the water hose on the ball looked like a young Clint Eastwood.

I have a 41 Dodge that my dad bought new. It has a standard transmission with a "fluid drive". You didn't have to use the clutch in anything but first gear. My brother started driving it in the mid 50's and he put 90 weight oil in the coupler and made it almost a direct drive.

Unless we didn't understand, a fluid coupling is nothing more than a torq (?) converter.

A fluid convertor does not have any significant Torque Convertor qualities. It is only a coupler. A torque convertor can seemingly multiply torque. Sorry, I just had to say it.
