Yes you read my mind

The Later Ficht outboard rebadged DI did have a recall to have some beefier injector brackets fitted after an engine exploded when an injector came loose and sprayed fuel vapor everywhere.

There have actually been three major recalls of the Ficht outboard, the ones I was thinking about is at the top and bottom of my list and could be relevant to me, when mine goes for it's PDI I'll have it checked out.
