When National Stock Number or Part Number is Not Known:
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.
Find the figure covering the assembly group or subassembly
group to which the item belongs.
Identify the item on the figure and use the Figure and Item
Number Index to find the NSN.
When National Stock Number or Part Number is Known:
Using the National Stock Number Index and the Part Number
Index, find the pertinent NSN or part number. The NSN index is in NIIN
