Go Devil Diesel

Reply
.... I traded with a friend for some ATV parts and wound up with a GoDevil frame , old but good condition , took some measurements and couldn't find any motor that would fit the mounting pattern , called GoDevil with the mod and s/n and they told me it was a Yanmar diesel model which was old and rare , says I can use a Honda or such gas motor with a little fab work ---- has anyone ever had or ridden in a diesel powered Go Devil ------------think of filling the rack with styro-foam and I won't need a snorkel ----------- wonder if you tied a string to the spark plug wire and your belt loop would suffice for a engine shut down lanyard as it appears they didn't use one back then LOL

I would post this on Mud Motor Chat or Mud Motor talk. You will get a much better response. But I have been around mud motors for a long time and never seen one with a diesel engine.

I actually finished it , and it is working , talked with Go Devil and the mechanic told me to use s 5.5 hp gas engine and everything would work out as long as I made new motor mounts and it did , here is a pic of it ----the reason I bumped it to the top was I got an email from a guy who linked from this old post , he had a lot of info on the diesel Go Devil and I tried to email him back but it wouldn't let me , figured if I bumped it up he could try and recontact me ----- in fact I want to sell this 5.5 Honda long shaft GoDevil

Post it on one the sites I listed above. Now is a good time to sell with duck season right around the corner. How much?

Thanks for the info Redline... , you sent more info than GoDevil , I have to say GoDevil was very helpful to me technically and sent me parts that made it easy to put it together , kill switch , wiring , throttle assembly and cable ------- this one is bushings with a grease fitting ---- I am scared of it as my boat has no steering bar , I put it on craig's list for $1,000 , tried but couldn't get it to post on La Sportsman classified
