Hi Kit,

most of the ones I've seen for full size engines are quite complex. They usually involve some kind of fluild coupling or clutch-like arrangement. I'll see if I can find a schematic drawing for you.

Kit - go here and search for 'torque'


You'll need to register on the forum first and then separately get registered for downloads (but that just takes an IM to the admins)
