"WHEN THE MOUNTING SCREWS ON THE FLANGE OF PLASTIC BODY FUEL FILLS ARE TIGHTENED THE FLANGE MAY CRACK. FILLS WERE MANUFACTURED AFTER 4/12/11 AND IN MAY. A DATE CODE ON THE SIDE OF THE FILL HAS AN 11 IN THE CENTER AND AN ARROW POINTS TO THE MONTH OF MANUFACTURE. ONLY PART NOS. 0540 0580 AND 1319 ARE INVOLVED. IF THE FLANGE CRACKS IT MAY SEPARATE FROM THE MOUNTING SURFACE MAKING IT DIFFICULT TO FILL THE TANK WITH FUEL WITHOUT FUEL SPILLAGE. PERKO IS CONSOLIDATING THIS RECALL FROM THE DOZEN PLUS BOAT BUILDERS WHO INSTALLED THIS MODEL FUEL FILL. THE RANGE OF AFFECTED HINS IS 80% COMPLETED AS THE INFORMATION IS FORWARDED FROM THE BOAT BUILDERS. MORE THAN HALF OF THE 3548 DEFECTIVE FUEL FILLS WERE DESTROYED BY PERKO OR THE BOAT BUILDERS. AS THE FINAL NUMBERS BECOME AVAILABLE A DNR ATTACHMENT WILL BE FILED TO DETAIL THE EXACT SCOPE OF THE RECALL. CUR1: 1150 UNITS REPAIRED CUR2: 1230 UR CUR3: 1252 UR - PLC 01/10/12.
