01.Marine Power Mercury/Mariner recall

Marine Power International Pty Ltd—Mercury/Mariner 40/50/60 HP Four Stroke Outboard Engines

Identifying features

Serial numbers 1C32073-1C168088

What are the hazards?

Leaking fuel presents a fire hazard.

What are the defects?

The connection to the primer bulb check valve may have the clamp incorrectly installed. This may cause a bunching or pinching of the material under the clamp, resulting in a leak path for air to enter the fuel system, leading to a lean fuel condition. The leak path may also create a fuel leak when the fuel bulb is used for priming the engine fuel system.

Where the product was sold

Nationally through Marine Power International. Traders can be found on customer inventory list at recalls.gov.au.

What should consumers do?

Stop using the engine and contact your nearest Mercury/Mariner dealer to arrange for the engine to be inspected and, if appropriate, rectified. The boat should not be used until this is done.
