Smile Thank you CMI for being a stand up company!

Thought I would let you know how well CMI took care of me. Since allot of posts I read on here are bashing some marine company. I thought I would share a happy story. I had been having problems with my center 525 EFI oil overheating. To make a long story short I had salt in the oil due to my headers leaking. I was worried since the boat was just out of warranty and I had read a couple posts about CMI not fixing leaky headers. So I was bracing for the having to spend some big dough for new headers. I sent them to CMI and they are fixing them right now for me under warranty. I should have them back within the next week. They will be as good as new and will be all polished up for me.
I just wanted to say thank you for taking care of the customer and standing behind your product. It would have been very easy to say sorry about your luck you are just past your warrenty. Thanks Mike

heres a good question.. does your center engine have tail pipe supports?? if not .then thats why the headres are leaking . you probably will not have the problem with the rear motors. if they do not have supports get them from cmi they have a kit .. that will definatley give your headers much more life....one more question were the headers leaking up top?? just went through the same thing on a outerlimits fought a oil temp and oil pres problem for a while..

Yes I have the tail supports. Both headers were leaking up near the collector cup. They fixed that leak and then pressure tested them again. One of them was good but the other one developed a small leak farther down the pipe. They had to cut of the collector and go farther down. They had to re fix this one and it was sent to be polished today. They already sent the one out on Friday and will send the other one out in the next day or two. They told me I will have them back in time for a poker run I am doing on June 24th. Once again nothing but good things to say about how I was treated by David at CMI. Thanks

I am a partner in a restaurant and see this everyday. Everyone that is not happy will let you know. Maybe 10% of the people that are happy take the time to let you know great job. It is that 10% that make it all the hard work worthwhile.
