Wrong again, back to the basement, come out with a clue .
Can I donkey punch the brakes? Or should I just keep that to myself...As a vet myself you trying to quote some jargon BS to beat your chest is embarrassing. I called you a Boomer because you're trying to act like your human body shifts faster than the 10R80. "Training wheels." That in and of itself is hilarious. Secondly, you came onto a thread where we're discussing the bummers and implications of a recall on a brake peddle assembly with a chip on your shoulder thinking you were funny.
Since this entire thread is now veering into "against the board rules" territory i'll steer it back into the right lane by saying that with only two incidents state side the likelihood of you being affected in the real world is very minimal. That's less than 1%. Just get it swapped when you can, and don't donkey kick your brakes.
They probably did. They also spec what they want the supplier to make. I’ve worked for a couple of automotive suppliers I can tell you that some engineers have no clue how components are actually made. They sometimes put stupid tight tolerances where they don’t need them, and then leave out dimensions that are actually more important. Those guys need to push their chair back and go out on a manufacturing floor once in a while and visit some suppliers to learn how things are made.Supplier makes these parts, not Ford. Although I'm sure Ford leaned on them to bring the price down.
