Recall Number: 77V185000
Owner Notification Date: November 21, 1977
Recall Creation Date: October 12, 1979
Component Description: Power Train: Automatic Transmission: Lever And Linkage: Column Shift
Manufacturer Involved in This Recall: Ford Motor Company
Manufacturer Responsible for This Recall: Ford Motor Company
Report Received Date: October 25, 1977
Summary: On the involved vehicles, the park actuation support plates are defective due to their susceptibility to cracking due to improper heat treatment during manufacture. As a result, fragments from a broken plate can become lodged in the transmission parking pawl mechanism. This could prevent the transmission parking pawl from engaging when the selector lever is placed in the "park" position, or prevent the pawl from being disengaged from the park gear.
Consequence: If the vehicle is placed in the park mode without the parking brake engaged, the parking pawl may not engage the "park" gear and the vehicle would be allowed to roll free causing property damage and personal injuries.
Remedy: The dealer will replace the park actuation cam support plates, free of charge, on all affected vehicles.

Note:
Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles and light trucks equipped with C-6 automatic transmissions.
