Some units are getting a bolt that is too long and too large in diameter when ordering the level winder control valve in the M88A2 recovery vehicle’s nose cone using NSN 5305-00-975-1764. The bolt (listed as SCREW, SHOULDER in the TM) is shown as Item 13 in Fig 336, Level Winder Guard and Roller Bracket Assembly, of WP 0337 in TM 9-2350-292-23&P-2 (May 22). You’ll know pretty quickly if the bolt is the wrong size because it won’t fit in the bolt hole.
File PQDR if bolt won't fit
If your unit receives the wrong bolt, be sure to submit a Product Quality Deficiency Report (PQDR). You can submit one electronically at the Product Data Reporting and Evaluation Program (PDREP) website HERE,
but you'll first need to request access.
