listings are divided into the same groups.
Second. Find the figure covering the assembly group or subassembly group to which the item belongs.
Third. Identify the items on the figure and note the item number.
Fourth. Refer to the Repair Parts List for the figure to find the part number.
Fifth. Refer to the Part Number Index to find the NSN, if assigned.
