The A-5455-AR front spring clip and the A-5461-AR starting crank bearing have been redesigned and are now carried under part A-5455-B and A-5461-B as the “AR” designs have been superseded by the “B” ·design. (See Fig. 844)
The new front spring clip is “U” shaped. This change made it necessary to redesign the starting crank bearing, so that it would conform with the radius at the bottom of the new “U” shaped clip. The new clip cannot be used with an old bearing or a new bearing with an old clip.
As the old design parts will not be held for repairs, it will be necessary, after present stocks are exhausted, to install the new clips and bearing when a call is received for an old style bearing or clip.
