International trucks recalled

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said it had issued a recall for up to 2,418 International Truck and Engine Corp. model 4700 heavy-duty trucks made between 1995 and 1999. NHTSA said the recall involved some trucks equipped with Bostrom driver seat models 910, 910SC, or 914 and International's parking brake code 04036. NHTSA said if the driver's seat is moved to its most forward position from outside the cab while the parking brake was set, the seat could release the lever for the parking brake. NHTSA said dealers would install a stop-bracket on the seat track so that the seat cannot release the lever.
