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. Equipped with 460 cid engine and 4350-4V carburetor. Possibility that the carburetor was built with secondary throttle stop lever that was stamped with an adverse step or discontinous surface on the upper periphery of the lever.
Consequence: This surface irregularity could impede the secondary lockout lever from riding down the upper cam-like surface of the secondary throttle stop lever. Should the lockout lever catch on the adverse step of the secondary stop lever and result in the secondary throttle plate being held open which could result in vehicle accelerating to an excessive speed.
Remedy: correct by inspecting and installing a newly designed secondary throttle lockout lever where necessary
