SO, if the purpose of a clutch is to engage and drive the drive train, and you want NO slippage once your under way......Settle this disagreement. Is it a "Lock-up" clutch....or a "lock-out" clutch. Cascade and other sites call it a "lock-out". But isn't the point of the device to "lock" the motor and drivetrain together? Please, Chime in with the tie braker. THANKS.

Lockup. In engineering terms "lockout" kept or prevented engagement of something but I am not a mechanical engineer I studied constitutional law in school lol.

Yup, it is a lockup clutch as most of us would call it. Every once in awhile I will hear somebody call it a "lock out", but it is kind of a rarity.

Well I agree. It locks up the clutch harder than just springs. So I've always called it a "Lock-up" clutch. Funny that companys like Cascade Innovations, Direct Drive (it's all they make), and many others call it a "lock-out". Well, I win the bet so somebody I knows payin' for dinner. Thanks.

We call a lot of stuff incorrect names. Like we often call an engine a "motor" which is technically incorrect as well.A motor is electric powered not gas.

Maybe THAT'S why I'm so dang slow.......I've been buying performance "Motor parts" and trying to get them to work on an "engine".
