AGSE: For Want of a Light Bulb

Dear Sergeant Blade,

I have the newly fielded Aviation Light Utility Mobile Maintenance Cart (ALUMMC), NSN 1740-01-632-9476. I’m looking for an NSN for the headlight bulb shown as Item 4 in Fig 16 of TM 1-1740-213-13&P (Feb 16). The TM lists the bulb part number as AM144882.

However, the part number doesn’t cross to an NSN in FED LOG. I already have one ALUMMC with a blown light bulb and would like to order some bulbs to build an initial stock. Can you help?

Dear Sergeant,

No problem. We can certainly help you out. Order NSN 6220-01-653-9428 to get the new headlight assembly. The assembly actually costs less than the light bulb.
