Reasons the product is recalled

The bell crank stud of the engine may corrode after prolonged exposure to seawater and potentially break resulting in loss of shift control.

The hazards to consumers

If the bell crank stud breaks, the operator will lose shift control. This could result in the operator's boat becoming stranded, which could lead to property damage or personal injury.

What consumers should do

Stop using the boat and contact your nearest Mercury/Mariner dealer to arrange for the bell crank stud to be replaced.
