e. INDEX NUMBERS. Items which have the word BULK in the figure column will have an index number shown in
the item number column. This index number is a cross-reference between the National Stock Number/Part Number
Index and the bulk material list in Section II.
f. ASSOCIATED PUBLICATIONS. The publications listed below pertain to the Aggregate Spreader and its
6. How to Locate Repair Parts.
a. When National Stock Number or Part Number is Not Known:
(1) First. Using the table of contents, determine the assembly group or subassembly group to which the item
belongs. This is necessary since figures are prepared for assembly groups and subassembly groups, and listings are
divided into the same groups.
(2) Second. Find the figure covering the assembly group or subassembly group to which the item belongs.
(3) Third. Identify the item on the figure and use the Figure and Item Number Index to find the NSN.
b. When National Stock Number or Part Number Is Known:
(1) First. Using the National Stock Number or Part Number Index, find the pertinent National Stock Number or Part
Number. The NSN index is in National Item Identification Number (NIIN) sequence (see paragraph 4. a. (1)). The
part numbers in the Part Number index are listed in ascending alphanumeric sequence (see paragraph 4. b). Both
indexes cross-reference you to the illustration figure and item number of the item you are looking for.
(2) Second. Turn to the figure and item number, verify that the item is the one you're looking for, then locate the
item number in the repair parts list for the figure.
