For Immediate Release
Bravo Shop Inc. Releases New Towers and Clutch Shafts for Popular Bravo Style Outdrives
New products designed to increase the strength and reliability over factory Bravo internals
UNION, Nebraska – August 1, 2012 – Bravo Shop Inc., recognized for its durable BMAX drives and replacement Bravo outdrive parts announced its newly engineered towers and clutch shafts for the X, XR, and XZ for Bravo outdrives. The new parts boast increased strength over factory parts while keeping costs down.
The new steel towers utilize larger 1 5/16” outside diameter bearings that are ¾” tall to reduce the side loading of the clutch shaft—the new design ensures the bearing is not installed in the wrong height location, alleviating a common problem when rebuilding drives. To accommodate the stronger designed towers, the new high-torque steel clutch shaft has been precision machined to accept the bigger bearing and the oil passages have been redesigned to maximize the strength and reliability of the shaft.
When asked why the need to redesign the Bravo internals, Owner John Pfahl stated: “We’ve had many customers complain about the dependability of their existing Bravo-style drives, so we set out to engineer a cost effective way to improve the strength and reliability of these vital parts, and based upon test results and customer feedback, we’ve succeeded in a big way.”
