    Severe flooding in Thailand has caused a shortage of some vehicle components, forcing Toyota Motor Corp. to cut back overtime production in several North American auto plants, the company said in a release on Wednesday. Toyota, which had many plants working overtime shifts to make up for production lost in the aftermath of this Spring’s earthquake in Japan, but the company said in order to conserve parts, overtime was suspended in auto assembly plants in Indiana, Kentucky and Ontario, Canada. The action also affected output at Toyota’s engine plant in West Virginia.
