Service Assembly Reference Numbers Parts in service assemblies have reference numbers in the form a:b. The a represents the reference number of the entire service assembly and the b represents a sequential number unique to each part within the service assembly. For example, a wheel assembly might be identified by reference number 6, the tire by 6:1, the valve by 6:2, and the wheel by 6:3. When you order the assembly identified by reference number 6, you receive all parts identified by reference numbers 6:1, 6:2, and 6:3. However, you may also order any part individually. Reference numbers of this type appear in illustrations and in part lists. Reference Numbers Indicating Quantity In an illustration, if a reference number indicates more than one part, the reference number has the form nX y.
