Defect SummaryBendix is recalling certain gunite automatic slack adjusters manufactured from october 15, 2010, through january 31, 2011, repackaged as bendix brand, part numbers 974294, 974296, 977142, and 977143, and sold for use as aftermarket equipment to paccar parts distributors. one slack adjuster was sold to a mack distributor. due to an incomplete knitting of the iron at the time of casting, inadequate structural integrity of the slack adjuster housing can occur, which could cause the housing to break at the handle under normal operating loads.
Consequence SummaryIf the slack adjuster housing were to break, the wheel brake to which the slack adjuster is attached would no longer function, causing the vehicle to have reduced braking capacity and, if mounted on the steer axle, the vehicle could pull to one side, possibly resulting in a crash.
Corrective SummaryBendix will notify owners of record and gunite will replace any affected slack adjusters free of charge. the safety recall is expected to begin during april 2011. owners may contact gunite at 1-812-962-5000 or bendix at 1-440-329-9000.
NotesOwners may also contact the national highway traffic safety administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153), or go to .
