966H Scoop Loader: Get'cher Quick-Couper Parts Here!

Dear Editor,

The 966H scoop loader’s TM 5-3805-291-23P (Jan 10) has no listing for the vehicle’s front quick-coupler hydraulic lines and couplers.

I’ve located a complete illustration from the Caterpillar website and all of the parts appear to be in the supply system. Can you pass this on to your readers?

Editor's Note: You bet, Jason. And thanks for the heads up!

Mechanics, make a copy of this list of couplers and quick-coupler hydraulic lines until they're added to TM 5-3805-291-23P.
