Recall Number: 79V117000
Owner Notification Date: June 18, 1979
Recall Creation Date: October 12, 1979
Component Description: Service Brakes, Hydraulic: Pedals And Linkages
Manufacturer Involved in This Recall: Ford Motor Company
Manufacturer Responsible for This Recall: Ford Motor Company
Report Received Date: May 15, 1979
Summary: The involved vehicles were produced with brake push-rod to brake pedal retaining pins which were not heat-treated as specified. This could allow the brake pedal to become disengaged from the push-rod.
Consequence: Disengagement of the brake pedal would result in total loss of service brakes, which could lead to loss of vehicle control and an accident. Note: the parking brake will remain operational even if service brakes are lost.
Remedy: Dealer will replace the suspect brake retaining pin.
