If you need to repair the 924H wheel loader’s air precleaner, you’ll come up empty looking for parts in Fig 22 of TM 5-3805- 298-24P. The air precleaner is listed only as an assembly, NSN 2940-01-068-7108, and costs about $107.
But we’ve found that the precleaner does have two repair parts. So keep these NSNs handy and save yourself a little money by repairing the precleaner whenever possible.

Of course, you’ll still have to replace the whole assembly if a part other than these two breaks.
