A hydrokinetic torque converter includes an impeller cover and bypass clutch located within the impeller housing. The impeller cover has welded to it a clutch plate, which carries friction material adjacent the clutch piston. The piston has legs that extend axially into engagement with helical springs carried in a damper assembly arranged in series with the damper between the impeller cover and the input shaft of the transmission. The springs are located in a retainer that accommodates two, three or four springs, as required by the torque requirements of...
[ We claim:] [1.] In a torque converter that includes an impeller and a turbine driven hydrodynamically by the impeller, a damper assembly for modulating torque disturbances, comprising:an impeller casing adapted for driveable connection to an engine;a moveable piston supported on a turbine hub for alternate frictional driveable engagement with, and disengagement from the impeller casing, having legs spaced mutually about an axis;a retainer driveably fixed to the turbine hub, located adjacent the piston, having a retaining flange formed integrally with t...
