The RPSTL also allows you to find parts whether you know the NSN,
the manufacturer's part number, or even if you lack the
If you know the NSN, go to the RPSTL,
locate the NSN in Section IV, and get the figure and item numbers
shown for that NSN. Then, you must go to the illustrated parts in
section II of the RPSTL.
The TM groups parts by function and
illustrates them in consecutively numbered figures. Go through the
illustrations until you come to a page with your figure number
shown at the bottom of the illustration.
Next, look at the
illustration and find the item number you need in the callouts.
Verify that the item number you have points to the part you want.
If you have the correct item number, go to the printed page
following the illustration and find all the necessary information
needed to order the part.
If you do not know the NSN for the part, but you have the
manufacturer's part number, locate the manufacturer's part number
in the RPSTL index (Sections II and III). The STOCK NUMBER column
beside the PART NUMBER column will provide you with the NSN; then
use the procedure given above using the NSN you found.
If you do not know the NSN or the manufacturer's part number, thumb
through the illustrated section of the RPSTL until you find the
functional group you need, and find the illustration that has the
part you need. Once you have the illustration number, you can use
the same procedure used when you know the NSN.
