PROBLEM

Some of the 454-2332 Hoses in dealer stock may be manufactured incorrectly. The spacing of the metal rings may be incorrect, making it difficult or impossible to correctly assembly all four hose clamps to the hose. These hoses are for use on 793F Off-Highway Trucks.

ACTION REQUIRED

Attached is an image of the hose and an image of the hose print showing critical dimensions. Inspect the hoses in inventory. The "finish" appearance of the outside of the hose is not relevant, only the dimensions for placement of the metal rings and overall length of the hose. Remove all 454-2332 Hoses from dealer parts stock that do not have the metal rings placed at the dimensions shown.
