** Important** Recall on Perko Fuel Fills

Perko has come out saying that they came across a problem with the fuel fills having a brittle area on the flange of the plastic body fuel fills. Because it is brittle, the fuel fill can crack when the mounting screws are tightened. The manufacturing dates of the affected fuel fills are from April 2011 to May 2011. The following part numbers with all variations are involved:

  • 0540
  • 0580
  • 0582
  • 1319

The images below show you how to find the manufacturing date for the fuel fills involved:
