M26 Decon: Diesel Engine Throttle Cable NSN

BLUF: Replace the M26 Decon throttle cable using NSN 2590-01-623-6988.

Dear Half-Mast,

My unit has an M26 Decon with a crushed throttle cable housing. The TM reference, Item 105 in Fig 9 on Page 0075-24 of TM 3-4230-238-23&P (Dec 12), is only showing the shaft, drive flexible. This is the inner part and I need the outer part.

Can you help?

Dear Sir,

TACOM’s M26 equipment specialist compared TM 3-4230-238-23&P (Dec 12) with the draft TM currently being worked. The updated TM will show the whole assembly as the push-pull control assembly You’ll need to order the whole assembly in order to replace the throttle cable. Use NSN 2590-01-623-6988.
