The M46 Electrical Utility Assembly, NSN 6150-01-208-9751, comes in two (2) configurations. The original configuration comes with an incandescent light (Item 3 of Fig 7) and light bulbs kit (Item 4 of Fig 7); the current configuration comes with a 36-in, fluorescent light (Item 8 of Fig 7).
Users will get one or the other light set based on the configurations which they received, but not both. The original configuration still exists in the field. To prevent confusion, the incandescent light and light bulbs kit will be removed from the TM.

The table below shows the list of items that have been removed from the M46 Electrical Utility Assembly.  Make a note of the changes.
