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: February 16, 1978
Summary: The shift selector reaction springs may be deformed as a result of improper installation of selector levers during column buildup. Thus the lever may not be able to be moved into the insert detents located in the steering column assembly. This could prevent the "park" gear from being engaged.
Consequence: Dealer will inspect and, if necessary, replace the shift selector reaction spring without charge to owner.
Remedy: If the parking gear is not actually engaged and the vehicle is parked on an incline without applying the emergency brake, the vehicle could roll free. Property damage and personal injury to bystanders could result.

Note:
Vehicle description: light trucks equipped with automatic transmission and optional tilt steering.
