966H Scoop Loader: Complete Joystick NSN

BLUF: Use NSN 2520-01-619-2035 to order a complete joystick for your 966H scoop loader.

This post script initially appeared in PS 800 (Jul 19), p. 61.

To get a complete electrohydraulic joystick for your 966H scoop loader, order NSN 2520-01-619-2035.

Use NSN 2520-01-557-4374, which is shown as Item 1 in Fig 151 of TM 5-3805-291-23P (Jan 10), if you want only the top handle control of the joystick.
Editor's Note (Jan 23): A senior technical representative with the 406th Army Field Support Battalion at Fort Drum has noticed that units are still ordering the NSN for the top handle control when they actually need the complete joystick. Make a correction in your TM until it's updated.
