go kart torque converters

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

I have a old 5 hp briggs and i wanna put a comet torque converter on it, first off where do you get the little key thing to take the old clutch off and second if i put a bit of accessories on it and raise the horsepower should i go with the one rated 3-8 hp or 8-18, or will either work? will the 8-18 work on a 5hp... or should i ditch the whole thing and use a racing clutch... im going to put it on an off road gokarts. thanx!
