Two-piece seat brings relief.
The driver's and mechanic's seats, NSN 2540-00-657-9725, on our M88A1 come as a one-piece assembly--a metal seat; with the fabric cushion glued to it.
That's fine until the cushion wears out. Then you either have to spend some bucks to order a new seat assembly or deal with a sore bum from mo cushioning.
It seems wasteful to throw away a perfectly good seat just because the cushion wears out. Is there any way to order a replacement cushion for our seats?
Dear Sergeant M.B.H.,
You bet! TACOM has heard you loud and clear and now offers the seat assembly as two separate pieces.
The seat pan comes with NSN 2540-00-740-4668 and the seat cushion with NSN 2540-01-473-4063. Ordering just the cushion will save you more than $80 over tits cost of the entity seat assembly.
The new cushion slips on and comes with spring-type ties that hold it in place. The old one-piece seat assembly is now a terminal item, so make a note of the new NSNs until TM 9-2350-256-24P-1 can be updated.
