M113A3-Series FOV: Inspect Transmitter Temperature Sensor

Units, be aware that one particular transmitter temperature sensor for the M113-series FOV can provide an incorrect reading. In some cases, the reading can be off as much as 40 degrees.
All units need to inspect the sensor, NSN 6685-00-814-5271, on either model engine and ensure that it isn’t labeled with CAGE code 65496.  That sensor is produced by Clark Brothers and is providing incorrect temperature readings. 
Units finding a sensor with CAGE code 65496 need to do a product quality deficiency report (PQDR). DLA is in the process of ordering new sensors but that will take at least a few months. Until then, units can order new sensors directly from the approved source.
