Bead lock stenciling
« on: October 25, 2020, 08:57:50 PM »
Sort of halftrack related, but anyone out there with an M8/M20 ORD 9 or who has a better example of the pics below able to fill in the blanks on what this stenciling says?  It is off the bead lock from an M8/M10 combat rim that I recently disassembled...destined for my M10 trailer.  Or does anyone have an example of stenciling from a halftrack combat rim bead lock, as I'm also tearing down two of those and the first one was pretty rusted...no markings survived. 
I think it says:
??? PC. BEAD LOCK ASSY. M-8 ARM. DAR
ORD. DWG. NO. 0106-479 SNL-G136
ITEM CODE - 1114-65-20938 FORD
Not sure if "DAR" is correct on line 1, although that is certainly what it looks like.
Also, on line 2 the "0106" could be "0186" and
the "1114" on line 3 could be "H14"

Thanks in advance, Tom

Probably of no interest to you but the below is taken from ISO parts.

2530-00-052-0938 Is the replacement NSN for the national number.

National Stock Number (NSN) 2530-00-052-0938, or NIIN 000520938, (beadlock,pneumatic tire) was assigned January 1, 1963 in the Federal Logistics Information System (FLIS). This NIIN is Available for Manual Assignment. This NSN does not replace any other NSNs.

There are 2 manufacturer part numbers associated with this NSN. None of the associated part number(s) are considered obsolete. The manufacturer part numbers were originally supplied by one supplier. Today, one supplier is listed as an Active supplier for this NSN. Of the active suppliers, only one supplier is deemed design controlled or valid supply parts.

This part number has not been procured by the US Government in over 5 years.

This NSN is assigned to Item Name Code (INC) 11336. [A CIRCULAR METAL DEVICE DESIGNED TO FIT BETWEEN THE BEADS OF A TIRE TO HOLD AND POSITION THE TIRE WHEN RIM FLANGES ARE TIGHTENED.]. This item does not have a nuclear hardened feature or any other critical feature such as tolerance, fit restriction or application. There is no information in the HMIRS; however, the NSN is in an FSC in Table II of Federal Standard 313 and an MSDS may be required by the user. The requirement for an MSDS is dependent on a hazard determination of the supplier or the intended end use of the product. NSN 2530000520938 contains an unknown precious metal.

This information was last updated on Oct 01, 2020.

Thanks...good to know replacements are available if the ones I have end up too rusty to re-use.  Anyone ever have to buy a replacement beadlock ring?

Better question to ask is who ever put their bead locks back in? Not me!

I don’t know what people do with larger bead locks but most I know fit rubber flaps and leave out the lock. I fitted one on my GPW spare and that’s it, decided it was a pain to fit so it would be 10 times harder if i had to remove them a number of years later.
