Muncie Power Products is recalling 5,744 PTO Assembly Pressure Switches (part number 30T37594) used in power take off (PTO) assemblies, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports.
These pressure switches — when used with a PTO assembly installed on a 2009-2014 model-year Ford F-350, F-450 or F-550 Super Duty chassis with a 6.8L gasoline engine — might result in oil leaks. The recall covers switches manufactured from June 2009 through June 2013.
The leaking oil may soak into the thermal blanket covering the exhaust, which could combine with exhaust heat to pose a fire risk, NHTSA said.
Muncie dealers will install a new pressure switch kit that moves the switch away from the exhaust system. There will be no charge for this service. Some owners have already received this repair work, as part of a service campaign.
Muncie can be reached at 1-800-367-7867.
