    YES , if you are not able to read the sign - WANTED PEUGEOT PARTS FOR JAEGER COUPLEUR - unfortunately no one at the swap meet knew of any or what a coupleur was - though a number of people gave me contact details of Peugeot parts hoarders. Restorer

    Electromagnetic clutch system

    Activated by pressing the gear lever

    A very advanced system for it's time. Licensed by Smith Industries UK to Jaeger.

    A fully relay based controller processing inputs for road speed (centrifugal sensor) , engine revs (dynamo third brush), throttle position (mechanical switch on cable)

    One of the magic features was way the electromagnetic clutch could slip to allow for smooth take offs.

    It was a replacement for the clutch : the gearbox remained.

    I think that the Renault system was called a Ferlec clutch/system. I think it was used on the R8 as well.
    It was a two pedal system (6 or 12 volts) making the clutch pedal redundant.
    How the Renault system compares to the Peugeot version I have no idea.
    So, not much help really!

    I got one of those in a mixed lot of French NOS car parts, and donated it to be raffled/auctioned at an RCCV monthly meeting, some years back, I believe a R8 owner was the happy recipient, and that made me happy too..

    Might have to drag those new R12 front end body parts along to a meeting and make a similar donation..

    G'day,
    we have a centrifugal clutch on the postie bike. Only engages over a predetermined rpm. So,in gear at idle, nothing. Rev the motor, and away we go. Shift, etc, no clutch lever. Same result, however, not not as elegant as the French system.

    The actual Jeager clutch unit

    Consists of two magnetic elements one connected to engine, one connected the gearbox, in the gap in between are finely divided iron filings,


    These are acted upon by a very strong magnetic field. The magnetic particles change their orientation when the magnetic field is present and thus the friction between the two elements is changed.

    Coupling effect is proportional to applied voltage and thus a lower applied magnetizing voltage at start up allows a smooth start, like slipping a conventional clutch.

    To avoid magnetic memory effect, and thus a lag in clutch release, the field energizing voltage is reversed in polarity and reduced in magnitude when the clutch is released.

    The control box is really well engineered and deceptively simple for the tasks it performs. And it works flawlessly when everything is adjusted properly.
