Improper installation, careless handling, burnt fields/armatures tampering and/or dismantling of units will render this warranty null and void.

THE FOLLOWING IS NOT COVERED UNDER THE API MARINE WARRANTY and will NOT BE ACCEPTED FOR RETURN

SHIPPING DAMAGE:
Each unit is individually boxed and secured with packaging material to protect it. Then it is over boxed for shipping. We take care to insure our product will survive the rigors of the freight trip to you. However, freight companies have been known to drop or throw packages and damage can occur. When you receive your package, please inspect it for any signs of external box damage. Any broken parts need to be reported to the freight carrier as shipping damage is not covered under warranty.

MODIFICATION OR DISASSEMBLY:
Any unit that has been modified in any manner or disassembled or has cut wires is not covered under warranty.

DRIVE END HOUSINGS:
Any of the following factors will break starter drive end housings and this damage is not covered under warranty; Water in a fuel system will cause “Hydro-Lock”, an increase in compression due to the fact that water will not compress when the cylinder fires; Re-engaging the starter before it has completely stopped; If the engine timing is off it can cause engine back-fire.

SUBMERSIONS:
All starters and alternators are treated for the harsh marine environment. However, submerging them will cause the unit to fail and is not covered under warranty.
Power Trim/Tilt units mounted in the mid-section of an outboard motor are “splash” rated. However, if the motor has been submerged deeper than 12” for an extended period of time water may leak into the motor. Damage caused by water intrusion due to submersion is not covered under warranty.

ALL OTHER ELECTRICAL UNITS:

Solenoid Switches and Voltage Regulators are sold as non-returnable items.
