    Can anyone please translate the attached German text which relates to the working of a fluid drive device designed by Arthur Berger of Daimler Benz in 1940.

    Unfortunately, the drawing does not show the movement of the oil into or out of the device, so it is difficult to work out what the designer is actually on about!

    Good luck.

    Type it into google translate... also have you got the patent details as we can see if there was a UK or US application in English?
    Does this patent help?
