Why? Were you affected by it? As I understand it from talking with both my area rep and Groco it mostly affected a few manufacturers and a couple of distributors.

The overseas manufacturer decided to change spec without notifying Groco. The spec may have been fine but they still decided to do a full recall. That is above board in my book and MORE than Forespar ever did with Marelon!!

I purchased a number of them from Hamilton marine over a one year period and NONE of them were affected by the recall.

I'd much rather have a manufacture that admits to a problem than one who sweeps it under the rug!!
