Default please confirm TC model

I am pretty certain this is a Comet 40 series. I've had it so long I don't recall

That pic won't help.
Show us some pics from the front and behind. We need to see the angles of the sheaves that the belt rides on.

Yup.
That's a 40 series torque converter.

No problem.
I would love to buy that engine and slap it on a kart, but alas, distance and money are the eternal enemies.

If the drive doesn't say Comet on it, it's a knockoff. Not saying that's necessarily a problem.
