It is configured as follows.

The vehicle drive device in the illustrated embodiment is configured as described above, and its operation will be described below. First, a case where the diesel engine 2 is started will be described with reference to FIGS. 1 and 2. When the engine is started, the transmission 10 is positioned in the neutral state. When starting the engine, since the hydraulic pump 60 is not operating, the working fluid does not circulate as shown in FIG. 2, so that the pressure of the working fluid in the outer chamber 40a and the pressure of the working fluid in the inner chamber 40b are the same. It is. Therefore, the clutch facing 52 of the clutch disc 51 and the casing 41 are actuated by the action of the disc spring 581 as described above.

Outer working chamber 40 by the working fluid circulated by
When the pressure of the working fluid a becomes higher than the pressure of the working fluid in the inner chamber 40b by a predetermined value or more, the clutch disc 51 is displaced rightward in FIGS. 1 and 3 against the spring force of the disc spring 581, The friction engagement between the clutch facing 52 mounted on the clutch disc 51 and the casing 41 is released (lock-up clutch is disconnected). As described above, after the engine is started, the diesel engine 2 is operated in an idling state with the lock-up clutch 50 disconnected.

Next, a case where power is transmitted by the action of the working fluid by the fluid coupling 4 will be described. In this case, the electromagnetic direction control valve 67 of the lock-up clutch operating means is deenergized (OFF), and the working fluid is circulated in the direction indicated by the arrow in FIG. 3 as described above. In a state where the working fluid is circulated in the direction indicated by the arrow in FIG. 3, the pressure of the outer chamber 40 a is higher than the pressure of the inner chamber 40 b as described above, and the clutch disk 51 is subjected to the spring force of the disc spring 581. Figure 1 against
3 is displaced to the right in FIG.
2 does not frictionally engage with the casing 41 (lock-up clutch is disconnected). As a result, the driving force generated on the crankshaft 21 (input shaft) of the diesel engine 2 is transmitted to the casing 41 of the fluid coupling 4 via the drive plate 44 as described above. Since the casing 41 and the pump shell 421 of the pump 42 are integrally formed, the pump 42 is rotated by the driving force. When the pump 42 rotates, the working fluid in the pump 42 flows toward the outer periphery along the impeller 422 due to centrifugal force, and flows into the turbine 43 as indicated by an arrow. The working fluid flowing into the turbine 43 flows toward the center side and is returned to the pump 42 as indicated by an arrow. Thus, the pump 4
When the working fluid in the working chamber 4a formed by the turbine 2 and the turbine 43 circulates in the pump 42 and the turbine 43, the driving torque of the pump 42 is transmitted to the turbine 43 via the working fluid. The driving force transmitted to the turbine 43 is transmitted to the output shaft 46 via the turbine shell 431 and the turbine hub 47, and further transmitted to the transmission 10 via the friction clutch 8.

Next, a state in which the lock-up clutch 50 is operated to directly connect the casing 41 and the turbine 43 to transmit the driving torque will be described. In this case, the electromagnetic direction control valve 67 of the lock-up clutch operating means is energized (ON), and the working fluid is circulated in the direction indicated by the arrow in FIG. In the state where the working fluid is circulated in the direction indicated by the arrow in FIG.
As described above, the pressure in the inner chamber 40b is higher than the pressure in the outer chamber 40a, and the clutch disc 51
At the left side, the clutch disc 51
The clutch facing 52 mounted on the casing 4

As a result, the casing 41, the pump 42, and the turbine 43 are directly driven by the clutch facing 52, the clutch disc 51, the input side retainer 56, the damper spring 54, and the output side retainer 57. Therefore, the crankshaft 21 of the diesel engine 2
The driving force generated on the (input shaft)
4, transmitted to the output shaft 46 via the casing 41, the lock-up clutch 50, the turbine 43, and the turbine hub 47, and further transmitted to the transmission 10 via the friction clutch 8.

In the illustrated embodiment, as described above, when the engine is not operating (the hydraulic pump 60 is not operating), the clutch facing 52 of the clutch disk 51 is actuated by the action of the disc spring 581. The casing 41 frictionally engages and the lock-up clutch 50
, The so-called gear parking becomes possible by putting the transmission 10 in the gear position when the vehicle stops.
