THE TOUGHEST AND MOST DEPENDABLE SURFACE DRIVE IN THE INDUSTRY
The GO-DEVIL® Surface Drive Engine is packed with features that are engineered to provide our customers the maximum performance and durability through the thickest muck and nastiest environments known to man. According to Warren Coco, owner of GO-DEVIL® Manufacturing Co.of Louisiana, Inc. LLC, “We’ve taken nearly 40 years of hands-on knowledge and experience in manufacturing the revolutionary GO-DEVIL® Long Tail engine, mixed with the latest in manufacturing technologies and engineering design, and created the most powerful and best performing surface drive this industry has ever seen.” Coco added, “This engine is a great asset to our industry, customer base, and business. It will cater to those customers who are interested in additional performance over open water and shallow mud flat environments. The GO-DEVIL® Surface Drive has been specifically developed to meet the increasing demand for speed without sacrificing the dependability and reputation that we have earned and have branded into our company name, GO-DEVIL®.”
The GO-DEVIL® Surface Drive Engine features the toughest frame in the industry, consisting of the perfect mix of steel components that will dominate all environments. Inside the frame lies the drive train. Designed with the sharpest of pencils, the drive train was engineered, hand built, and rigorously tested by our resident mechanical engineers and skilled shop hands. At the heart of the drive train, high performance sprockets connected through precision belts mechanically reduce the engine’s revolutions, thereby generating more torque to turn a larger mud slinging propeller. Because of the overwhelming success with the components used in the drive train of the modern GO-DEVIL® Long Tail Engines, the GO-DEVIL® Surface Drive was crafted with many of the same features in the shaft housing including the upper bearing assembly, the pressure lubricator, and the ever-dependable seal housing and lower bronze bushing, now with a spiral groove for positive pressure lubrication. Additionally, the GO-DEVIL® Surface Drive utilizes a constant velocity joint that eliminates undesirable engine angle. At the end of the drive train rests the latest in propeller design and innovation. This propeller is designed to cut and “sling” through the thickest mud. The GO-DEVIL® Surface Drive is available in Vanguard and Kohler engines and carries a two-year manufacturer’s warranty.
