Comments:  
THE ALTERNATOR BRACKET WAS PAINTED BEFORE THE ALTERNATOR WAS INSTALLED. THE PAINT INSULATES THE ALTERNATOR FROM THE ENGINE AND THE GROUND WIRE CANNOT CARRY THE LOAD. IT BURNS UP. PAINT NEEDS TO BE REMOVED SO THAT THE ALTERNATOR IS PROPERLY GROUNDED THROUGH THE MOUNT. THE ENGINE MANUFACTURER IS CONDUCTING THE DEFECT NOTIFCATION CAMPAIGN DIRECTLY RATHER THAN HAVING THE BOAT MANUFACTURERS DO INDIVIDUAL CAMPAIGNS. 09/05/02 CRUSADER HAS DECIDED TO COMPLETELY REDO THIS CAMPAIGN. THEY HAVE REDESIGNED THEIR WIRING HARNES AND WANTED TO CLOSE OUT THIS CAMPAIGN AND START A NEW CAMPAIGN WITH THE REDESIGN. SEE 020167S
