are these units any good...do they operate properly...or are they just no worth it. The reason why I as is because I have seen many of them for sale.

most guys don't know how to operate one correctly. you shouldn't buzz the engine while you're engaging the cone clutch and you shouldn't try to load the car on the trailer with it. also, ram says don't use it on any vehicle that weighs more than 2600 lbs.
copied and pasted from the ram clutches website:
The RAM Coupler is a compact, lightweight clutch system featuring a splined lock-up engagement. The cone clutch provides the initial engagement to get the vehicle moving when the pedal is depressed. Positive lock-up is achieved when the pedal is released and the splined cone engages the splined top plate. The RAM Coupler is just five pounds and 4 ¾ inches in diameter - about the size of the crank flange itself! RAM recommends that the coupler be used in vehicles under 2600 pounds. To see if the RAM Coupler is for you, check the selector chart for oval track clutches.
