Limited Warranty
   Your First Mate Marine engine is designed for a specific application (pleasure boat, commercial boat or charter boat) and is only covered by this Limited Warranty when used for its specified application. First Mate Marine engines, blocks and cylinder heads are NOT warranted for use in airboats. Any engine, block or cylinder head used for an application other than the one for which it was expressly designed will void this Warranty.
First Mate Marine expressly warrants that its engines are of good quality and free from defects in materials and workmanship. Purchaser acknowledges that First Mate Marine has made no affirmation of fact or promise relating to its engines outside this Limited Warranty and that First Mate Marine has provided the purchaser no description, sample or model of its engines upon which the purchaser has relied in deciding to purchase a First Mate Marine engine. First Mate Marine will, at its sole discretion, repair or replace defective parts or a complete engine. All repairs will be made at the seller’s or distributor’s cost, plus applicable labor pursuant to the labor policy set forth below. PRIOR AUTHORIZATION IS REQUIRED FROM FIRST MATE MARINE BEFORE WARRANTY WORK IS BEGUN. Contact First Mate Marine at or 1-800-437-1779 for a numbered authorization. It is the sole responsibility of the purchaser to pay for such work (including labor and parts) and to submit the alleged defective parts, written order showing all charges, and a written receipt
for all charges to First Mate Marine for review and determination by First Mate Marine extend this Limited Warranty.
Accessory Parts
Fuel injectors, fuel pumps, oil pumps, water pumps, distributors, hydraulic high pres- sure pumps, sensors, sending units, turbochargers, belts, hoses and other accessories installed by First Mate Marine have a one year warranty, after which time they are considered maintenance items and are not covered under this Limited Warranty. Parts included in installation kits provided by First Mate Marine are warranted for defective workmanship and materials for that duration of time as stated by the original parts manufacturer.
Labor Policy
First Mate Marine will pay labor claims only to repair facilities it has authorized and will only pay labor claims that the purchaser actually incurs as an out of pocket expense. First Mate Marine will not be liable for or pay any labor claims on First Mate Marine installed by any third party who is not a certified marine mechanic (Marine Certificate or equivalent) that it has authorized to perform repair work and will not pay any labor claims on engines installed in whole or in part by purchaser. All labor expenses for field repairs, removal or reinstallation shall be limited to that expense and to those hours listed on the most recent Motors Flat Rate manual or alternative manual pre-approved by First Mate Marine at a pre-determined labor rate. Warranty credits not used within one year against future purchase will be considered void.
Owner Obligations
PRE-LUBE YOUR ENGINE AS INSTRUCTED IN THE INSTALLATION GUIDE PRIOR TO START-UP. Change oil after 10 hours. Monitor oil level for first 100 hours as oil con- sumption may be higher in this period. Use good quality motor oil of the appropriate grade and viscosity as recommended by the original engine manufacturer. Do not use synthetic oils during break-in or at anytime during the first 200 hours of operation. Synthetic oil can be used after the first 200 hours of operation. The use of synthetic oil during the first 200 hours of operation will void this Limited Warranty. Proper oil pressure and lubrication are mandatory for good engine break-in. All boats should be equipped with gauges or lights to indicate engine temperature and oil pressure. DO NOT OPERATE BOAT WITH ABNORMAL OIL PRESSURE OR WATER TEMPERATURE. After initial start-up, avoid excessive RPM and keep boat on plane. Vary RPM range for the first three (3) to five (5) hours of running time. High engine RPM may damage your new engine through friction and high temperatures. Avoid long periods of idling. Absent neglect by the purchaser, engine overheating and engine failure due to lack of lubrication can be prevented by proper monitoring of all gauges and/or lights and should never result in engine damage.
