    Does anyone have this bulletin? Are they replacing for free now? I recently was advised I have peeling paint.

    I was told it's not a recall but a goodwill gesture, I was expecting to pay for it but the shop called and said Merc would cover the parts. Module.. hoses and fuel injectors.

    I had same issue. Mercruiser will pay for the parts but you'll be on the hook for the labor.

    Looks like Merc is going to provide parts. Work has to be done at a dealer, not a certified mechanic. For those of you who have done this, how many labor hours to do the whole thing? Injectors, cool fuel, rail etc?

    I paid $600 per engine, not sure what they charge an hour most likely 4/5 hours per engine

    Off the top of my head this seems close to what I paid as well.

    And that is for everything? I called a dealer in CA and they said approx. 3500. I thought that was crazy!

    $3,500 is a total rip-off. I pulled the unit the first time, along with the fuel rails and changed the injectors and even I could do it in a fraction of that time.

    That is definitely a rip off! I would call MM corporate and get them involved. I would hope they would want to know what their dealers are doing.
