Report Received Date: September 13, 1977
Summary: The involved vehicles may experience fuel leakage at the rubber hose connecting the fuel inlet tube to the carburetor filter. This leakage condition is due to insufficient insertion of the fuel tube into the hose or improper positioning of the hose clamp, causing the clamp to be crimped directly over the fuel tube bead.
Consequence: Fuel leakage could lead to an underhood fire and injuries to vehicle occupants from burns and smoke inhalation. Note: gasoline odors may indicate a fuel leak is present.
Remedy: Dealer will replace the existing fuel hose clamp with a spring-type clamp at the hose-to-fuel inlet tube connection, and adjust the connection where necessary, without charge.

Vehicle description: trucks and passenger vehicles equipped with 351 or 400 cid engines.
System: fuel; fuel hose.
