    Merc 575 Broken Fuel Lines Report

    That thread seems to have mysteriously vanished.
    Wonder why?
    Seems to me that 3 broken fuel line welds should lead to a Coast Guard mandated recall of all 575's, not a deleted thread on OSO.

    Fuel Lines

    Big Dog Here, Don't know where my thread went about the fuel lines, but in a nutshell - on the starboard engine at the weld on the foward side of the splitter a crack occured at approximately 20 hrs and was replaced, at approximately 25 hrs a crack occured at exactly the same spot on the port engine, and with new lines at approximately 30 hrs a crack occured again on the starboard engin again at the exact spot. The lines, are in Fond du Lac at this posting for testing. The info is there are no other problems like what I am experiencing, the serial numbers on my engines end in 00002 and 00003 - I guess its a good thing I didn' have
    00004 in the boat also !
    As I get info I will be more than happy to share.
