AGSE: Tire Replacement for GANG

Generic aircraft nitrogen generator (GANG)

Dear SFC Blade,

I'm doing maintenance on the tire and wheel assembly for the generic aircraft nitrogen generator (GANG) and have hit a roadblock. In TM 1-3655-245-13&P (Mar 13), the NSN for the tire and wheel assembly is inactive according to FED LOG, although the part number is still active.

I'm wondering if there’s a new NSN. Can you help?

Dear SPC J.B.

We can. The GANG subject-matter expert (SME) said the tire and wheel assembly comes with NSN 2530-01-506-2183 (PN 581952-001) and the CAGE is 75906. The NSN has an SMR code of XD0ZZ, which means it’s a non-stocked item and must be obtained via local purchase like it says in Fig 2-1 on Page 2 of AR 700-82, Joint Regulation Governing the Use and Application of Uniform Source, Maintenance, and Recoverability Codes (Aug 20). 

Sometimes these parts get dropped by DLA due to low demand or other factors. When this happens, units typically order the part or parts “off-line” or as non-standard requisitions. PD-AGSE favors using the non-standard requisition process through GCSS-Army because it helps build back the demand needed for DLA to restock the item.

We covered the non-standard requisition process in AGSE: For Want of an ALUMMC Windshield Bolt (just click on the title to download a copy).
 
Additionally, should you need it, we’ve attached the OEM information and cost estimate for the tire and wheel assembly, which includes the vendor’s sales rep contact information.   

If you have other questions or need assistance, email the GANG POC, Jon Ramsey, at:
