FT, GL, LB, EA, DZ, GR) appears in this column to indicate the measure or count. If the U/M code appearing in this

are found in the appropriate appendices of this manual. Items that make up the assembly are listed immediately following
the assembled item entry.
Line item entries for repair kits and sets appear as the last entries in the repair parts listing for the figure in
which their parts are listed as repair parts.
Items which have the work BULK in the figure number column will have an index number shown in the item
number column. This index number is furnished for use as a cross-reference between the National Stock Number/Part

How to Locate Repair Parts.
When National Stock Number or Part Number is Not Known:
First. Using the table of contents, determine the functional group to which the item belongs. This is
necessary since figures are prepared for functional groups, and listings are divided into the same groups.
Second. Find the figure covering the functional group to which the item belongs.
Third. Identify the item on the figure and note the item number of the item.
Fourth. Refer to the Repair Parts List for the figure to find the line item entry for the item number noted
on the figure.
