Maintainers, there’s been some confusion when trying to order the tank and pump unit (TPU) tiedown kit (and parts) for FMTVs. That’s because the tiedown kit listed as Fig 13 in TM 10‐4930‐236‐13P (Dec 12) and as Item 21 in the components of end item (COEI) list was used to mount the TPU assembly to the old M939 trucks and not FMTVs.
TACOM has submitted a DA Form 2028 to remove the old tiedown kit, NSN 3990010158457, from the TM and COEI list.
You can get the TPU tiedown kit for M1083 and M1093 FMTVs with NSN 3990-01-444-0356 (PN 57K1954) for about $2,800.
Get the TPU tiedown kit for M1085 FMTVs using NSN 3990014440355 (PN 57K1955) for about $2,600. Both tiedown kits are managed by DLA.
For TPU mounting instructions for M1083, M1093 and M1085 FMTVs, go to the PS Magazine milSuite site using the links below:
