Component Description: SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC: FOUNDATION COMPONENTS: DISC: CALIPER
Manufacturer Involved in This Recall: Ford Motor Company
Manufacturer Responsible for This Recall: Ford Motor Company
Report Received Date: July 7, 1975
Summary: Ford Campaign No. 165. Light trucks. Possibility that trucks equipped with heavy duty double piston power front disc brakes may have front brake caliper assemblies with one of the two caliper housing mounting bolts improperly torqued during subassembly.
Consequence: An untorqued mounting bolt could back off in service and result in increased brake pedal travel so that the driver would be inclined to pump the brake pedal. Repeated pumping of the pedal when one end of the caliper housing remains fixed by a properly torqued bolt and the bolt on the opposite end is loose can cause the fixed end of the housing to fracture and can result in a loss of front wheel braking. Should this occur, braking of the vehicle would be limited to the rear brakes.
Remedy: Correct by inspecting and replacing housing on units found with loose bolts.
