Looks like they mostly do automotive torque converters, but I'll give them a try!!

Thanks!

P.S. I'm looking for the kits for the small ones like on the older berry go rounds etc!

Try this company... It's who we use. If you look on the bottom of the page, they're actually members of the Pennsylvania trade organizations.

Can you replace the clutch with an inverter?

Variable frequency drives - much easier on the generator and usually bullet proof. Baldor is a good brand! No oily mess when the get over filled or blow seals.

Google "industrial fluid clutch" you will get several options.
Its not impossible it just costs more.

Geewizz66, What is a good source to learn about variable frequency drives thought about putting them on my cobra.

Thanks

If you go to Baldor's website it gives sizing and the manuals for applications. If two motors are to start at the same time and are equal in size and rpm you can use 1 inverter. Just use the total HP of the motors. I picked one manual for you to look at, there are several and their manuals are good. They are simple to install and fairly easy to program. If you do use one make sure you use the password to prevent the help from changing the settings. Also, it is better to get the next size bigger than what they recommend. I have installed them on the bridge drives for 5 ton cranes, dual spindle drills and other machinery. Make sure it has a good supply of air to keep it cool and not allow a heat build up. Grainger sells them or you can go to almost any place that sells Baldor motors. The latter will help you with programming and installation.

Hope this helps.
