Summary: The hand throttle cable can wear the brass swivel block on the governor lever through which it passes.
Consequence: This wear can result in the governor jamming in thedamaged swivel and could prevent the governor lever from returning to the idle position.
Remedy: Dealers will install a revised governor lever with a stainless steel swivel. Also letters will be sent to vehicle owners that have the same vehicles but do not have a ford installed hand throttle advising them that they may require service if they have had an after market hand throttle installed.
Notes: System: fuel; throttle linkages and control. Vehicle description: trucks, chassis-cabs and cowl-chassis vehicles with inline fuel injection pump equipped fd-1060 or fd-1460 engines and hand throttles. Note: the vehicle brakes are capable of overriding the engine power and bringing the vehicle to a stop. Note: owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonablet ime, should contact ford at 1-800-392-3673.
