Component Description: FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE: CARBURETOR SYSTEM
Manufacturer Involved in This Recall: Ford Motor Company
Manufacturer Responsible for This Recall: Ford Motor Company
Report Received Date: March 4, 1975
Summary: Ford Campaign No. 154. Light trucks equipped with 460 cid engine & 4353-4V carburetor. Possibility that the O-ring on the sealing plug installed in the fuel inlet cross-channel of the carburetor may experience loss of the sealing plug.
Consequence: Should plug loss occur, fuel pump operation would cause gasoline to be discharged onto the engine under pressure. A strong fuel odor would result with potential for the occurrence of an underhood fire.
Remedy: Correct by installing new plug less O-ring using an epoxy coating over plug and adjacent surface.
