QUESTIONS TO ADDRESS: Investigate when belt & pulley systems first came to be used.
...what purpose were they intended to serve?
...what advantages/disadvantages did they have over alternatives?

Clutches were always needed in such a system... why?

INVESTIGATE a modern example from a car, mower, ATV, whatever ...and compare the clutch as used in the CCF with clutches as still used, today.
