Mechanics, TM 1-1520-237-23&P (Apr 23), TM 1-1520-246-23&P, and TM 1-1520-280-23&P for the UH-60A/L/M helicopters specify the use of the MS21244 nut on the pedal adjuster assembly for each helicopter. There’s one problem: demand for this nut exceeds inventory.
So, in the interim, the Utility Helicopter Project Office (UHPO) has approved the use of SS5092-4 nut as an acceptable alternative until the preferred MS21244-4 nut is available.
The alternative nut meets all prerequisites of MIL-DTL-9490, reference 1.b. and is equivalent in dimensions, strength and galvanic compatibility. It’s also already available in the supply system.
