Three additional work truck upfitters – Manning Equipment Inc., Dual-Tech Inc. and Iowa Mold Tooling Co. – are recalling Ford Super Duty trucks they’ve modified to address potential oil leaks associated with Muncie Power Products PTO (power take-off) assemblies.

In these work trucks, oil might leak from the PTO pressure switch onto a thermal blanket covering the exhaust. This condition poses a fire risk, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports. Earlier this month, the federal safety agency announced four similar recalls by truck upfitters.

Dual-Tech is recalling 42 2009-2014 model-year Ford F-550 Super Duty trucks. Iowa Mold Tooling Co. is recalling 21 2009-2014 model-year Ford F-350, F-450 and F-550 Super Duty trucks. Manning is recalling 10 2012-2013 Ford F-350, F-450 and F-550 Super Duty trucks.

Truck owners can reach Manning at 1-800-876-8768, Dual-Tech at 1-800-852-0345, and Iowa Mold Tooling at 1-800-247-5958. These recalls are set for this month.
