Torque Converters (CVT’s)

Comet has been manufacturing torque converters for recreational vehicles for over 60 years.Our torque converters are designed and built to withstand the extreme rigors of rough applications. Whenever there is a need, want and use for a torque sensitive drive system device that is infinitely variable from engagement to the highest speeds attainable (within the pitch diameter range), our experience and quality craftsmanship will provide you with an excellent, long-lasting product for your application.

How does a Comet torque converter work? The drive clutch is activated by the centrifugal force from the engine crankshaft. The moveable sheave of the clutch is forced in as the RM of the engine is increased. This contacts the drive belt. The drive belt will then be forced to a larger diameter within the clutch sheaves, thus pulling it to a smaller diameter within the driving unit sheaves. The moveable sheave of the driven unit is forced out, allowing the belt to seek its smaller, high speed ration diameter. As this happens, the speed from the engine transferred to the final drive is increased.

20 Series


The model 20 uses a ¾” top width belt. The belt mass lends substantially to the driving ability of the system especially in cases where added torque ability is required without danger of slipping the belt. The belt mass of ¾” top width is especially helpful in applications of low speed, added power requirements such as tractor mowers, off road dune buggies, mini bikes, ATV’s and go-karts.

108 4PRO Series


We call the 108 4-Pro the Super Clutch as it utilizes four clutch weights rather than three, greatly enhancing tuneability. Arms can be used in sets of two, allowing you to zero in on the amount of weight desired, and a captivated tower allows the shouldered cover bolts to virtually eliminate tower spreading.
