Dear Half-Mast,
Can you help me find the updated NSN for the M88A1 recovery vehicle’s fuel pump? When I try to order the pump, NSN 2910-00-950-8384, it comes up as cancelled with no replacement.

Dear D.G.,
Sure can! That fuel pump is for the ONAN auxiliary power unit (APU), which is now obsolete. The ONAN APU, and many of its associated parts (including the fuel pump), are no longer supported.
Instead, convert your vehicle to the Hatz APU configuration with the conversion kit that comes with NSN 2520-01-604-1223. The kit includes everything needed to complete the conversion, including a Hatz APU, NSN 6115-01-465-8922, and installation instructions.
