Power steering assembly spring update.


Dear Editor,

A unit ordered the spring, NSN 5360-00-795-6975, which is on the power steering cylinder assembly for M939-series 5-ton trucks. Then they learned that it's a terminal item! This spring is shown as Item 24 in Fig 317 of TM 9-2320-272-24P-1 (Feb 99).

Please tell your readers not to order NSN 5360-00-795-6975 for the power steering assembly spring. Instead, they can get the spring by ordering the steering drag link parts kit, NSN 2530-01-511-5844. The kit costs about $68.

I've submitted a DA Form 2028 so the correction can be made when the parts manual is updated. Your readers might want to pencil in the change until that happens.

Editor's note: Thanks for steering troops in the right direction, Mr. Brunson.
