Build Years/Makes/Models: 1978 FORD F350
Units affected: 2
Recall Number: 77V222000
Owner Notification Date: January 4, 1978
Recall Creation Date: October 12, 1979
Component Description: Fuel System, Gasoline: Storage: Tank Assembly
Manufacturer Involved in This Recall: Ford Motor Company
Manufacturer Responsible for This Recall: Ford Motor Company
Report Received Date: December 15, 1977
Summary: The involved vehicles were built with aft-of-axle fuel tanks which were not authorized by light truck engineering. As a result, these vehicles fail to conform to federal motor vehicle safety standard no. 301, "fuel system integrity", due to possible fuel tank leakage when impacted from the rear.
Consequence: In the event of a rear end collision, fuel leakage could occur and if an ignition source is present, a vehicle fire and passenger injury could result.
Remedy: Dealer will inspect and replace aft-of-axle fuel tank with the correct tank, without charge to owner.

Vehicle description: light trucks equipped with rear step bumpers.
