    Document Type and Number:United States Patent 3653279

    Abstract:A differential fluid coupling drive wherein a pair of fluid couplings in conjunction with an intermediate planetary type differential and lock-up clutch are employed to deliver power from a single engine to two separate dual power shift transmissions respectively driving opposite side wheels of a vehicle. The drive allows a normal differential action at small differences in wheel speeds, as in turning, but has high resistance to large wheel speed differentials, such as when one wheel loses traction.
