Caliper Bolts Improperly Torqued – 1984 Burch Evans Cargo Tank Trailers

Caliper Bolts Improperly Torqued

If the caliper bolts are improperly torqued and the caliper detaches from the mounting flange, a loss of braking ability would occur, increasing the risk of a crash.



Burch Tank and Truck (Burch) is recalling certain 1984 Evans Cargo Tank trailers, equipped with MPA/MTA suspensions and Meritor EX225 brakes. The brake caliper bolts on these axles may not be properly torqued which can allow the caliper to detach from the mounting flange.



Burch has notified owners, and fleets will be reimbursed by Meritor to inspect the bolts, and replace any loose or missing ones. The recall began on October 3, 2017. Owners may contact Burch customer service at 1-800-882-7640 or the Meritor call center at 1-866-668-7221.



Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to
