THE HIGH PRESSURE FUEL FILTER IN CERTAIN 70HP & 90HP OUTBOARD ENGINES, MODEL TLDI (B SERIES), THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT ONE OF THE BOLTS IN THE UPPER COWL MAY COME IN CONTACT WITH THE HIGH PRESSURE FUEL FILTER LOCATED JUST BELOW IT. THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT THE BOLT COULD RUB A HOLE IN THE HIGH PRESSURE FUEL FILTER AND CAUSE FUEL TO LEAK FROM THE FILTER, CREATING A HAZARDOUS SITUATION. THE FIX TO THIS PROBLEM IS TO REPLACE THE FUEL FILTER MOUNTING BRACKET WITH A NEW (RE-DESIGNED) BRACKET. DNR RCVD 5/21/08 - 7 CORRECTED. CUR 1 RCVD 305 CORRECTED. CUR 2 RCVD 465 CORRECTED.
