Default 525-1200 Merc recall

Anyone done this starter fuse recall? I wonder what was happening? We are going to preform the recall on a set of 700's, looks like a pain, have to remove the headers to get to the starters.

no big deal on the staggers. somewhat of a pain on the side by sides.

on my 525's, they are done. (I assume we are talking about the same recall) They put some fuse/cricuit braker thingie right by the alternator. I was told it dosen't have to go by "the starter". Something about overload protection.
