NY,USA -AP/The NY Times -July 4, 2014: -- The school bus maker Blue Bird is recalling more than 2,500 All American school buses and some transit buses to fix a problem that could make steering more difficult... The company also is recalling a smaller number of school buses that may be prone to a propane fuel leak, according to paperwork filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration... Blue Bird said the steering problem could develop on some buses made between 2011 and last May if a steering shaft clamp came into contact with a rubber closeout boot on the floor. It also is recalling more than 400 transit buses to fix the same problem... The company also is recalling 388 Vision school buses made in 2012 or 2013 to address the possible fuel leak, which could lead to a fire. It said in a report to the safety agency that this can happen in “severe environments” when an aluminum fuel line fitting corrodes where it meets a brass supply valve housing on the fuel take. The propane fuel systems are made by Roush Clean Tech, and the aluminum fuel line fitting will be replaced by a stainless steel version...
