FORD F350 | THE PLASTIC RETAINER LOCATED WHERE THE CLUTCH PEDAL ENGAGES THE ROD FOR THE CLUTCH MASTER CYLINDER WEARS OUT ALLOWING THE ROD TO DISENGAGE THE PEDAL ASSEMBLY WITHOUT ANY NOTICE OF INPENDING FAILURE. | DEVINE,TX | 1999

THE PLASTIC RETAINER LOCATED WHERE THE CLUTCH PEDAL ENGAGES THE ROD FOR THE CLUTCH MASTER CYLINDER WEARS OUT ALLOWING THE ROD TO DISENGAGE THE PEDAL ASSEMBLY WITHOUT ANY NOTICE OF INPENDING FAILURE. THIS HAPPENED TO ME IN A CROWDED PARKING LOT AT THE CANTON TRADE DAYS. LUCKILY I WAS IN 1ST GEAR AND WAS ABLE TO IDLE TO A PARKING SPACE WITHOUT HITTING ANYONE OR ANYTHING. ONCE THE PEDALS COMES LOOSE AND THE ENGINE IS STOPPED IT CANNOT BE RESTARED WITHOUT THE PEDAL ASSEMBLE BEING IN PLACE. THIS PROBLEM CAN BE AVOIDED BY RETURNING BACK TO THE OLD STYLE BALL AND SOCKET SET UP USED ON OLDER VEHICLES AND DOING AWAY WITH THE PLACTIC PIECES IN THE SETUP. HAD I BEEN BEHIND SOMEONE OR BEEN IN A DOWNTOWN DRIVING SITUATION WHERE A PEDESTRIAN BEEN IN FRONT OF ME SUCH AS A STOP LIGHT WHEN IT DECIDED TO COME LOOSE THE OUTCOME MAY HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY SERIOUS. *AK Date Reported:June 03, 2000. 0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Car problem was reported in DEVINE, TX.
