Abstract:
A hydrokinetic torque converter for coupling driving and driven shafts. The torque converter comprises an impeller wheel rotatable around a rotational axis, a turbine wheel rotatable coaxially aligned with the impeller wheel, a stator situated axially between the impeller wheel and the turbine wheel, and a one-way turbine clutch permitting rotational movement of the turbine wheel in one circumferential direction only. The one-way turbine clutch includes an outer ring non-rotatably connected to the turbine shell, an inner ring disposed radially within the outer ring and a plurality of engagement components positioned radially between the outer and the inner rings. The turbine wheel includes a turbine shell and at least one coupling member extending axially outwardly from the turbine shell in the direction toward the one-way turbine clutch. The at least one coupling member of the turbine wheel is non-rotatably coupled to the outer ring of the one-way turbine clutch.
