Reasons the product is recalled

There are two types of pulleys in the power-assisted steering pump. The pulley may be solid or have "windows" (spaces) in the pulleys. Only steering pumps with solid pulleys are affected by this recall.
The solid pulley may contain contaminants, which can overheat during pulley use, potentially leading to a fire.

The hazards to consumers

An on-board fire could lead to serious injury and/or property damage.

What consumers should do

MerCruiser engines that are affected by this recall should not be operated until they have been inspected and repaired (if necessary).

Engines with steering pumps that have solid pulleys need to be returned to a Mercury MerCruiser dealer for inspection and a free repair.

Owners who are able to access the steering pump may perform a "self-check" to see what type of pulley their Mercruiser engine has.
If the pulley is solid (see pictures above), the engine must be returned for a free repair.
If the pulley is windowed, owners are asked to send a photograph of the pulley, along with the owner details and engine serial number to Mercury Marine (send to This will allow the pulley identification to be checked and the individual engine to be accounted for in the recall records.
