You can likely buy a Chinese 30 series torque converter on eBay for cheaper than you can get a centrifugal clutch and the right sprockets

What stuff? I'm sure you're aware that gear ratio is everything but should be clutch to jackshaft sprocet and jackshaft axle. And what about the tc is exploded?

I would save the money you will spend on a sprocket and wait till you have enough cash for a replacement TC. Changing from a TC to CC nearly ALWAYS ends badly and with frustrated people
