1969 Navy Boot in Orlando

Company Commander Radar Chief named Ralph Scott

His favorite expression was

"Finer than an RCH"

Graduation day he and his wife were walking in step to the gallery at the parade field next to the grinder

Woman had a head of red hair that Nichol Kidman would be envious of

My experience is, admittedly, (and rather sadly) quite limited. My encounter had me thinking "rusty steel wool". Which did not, by the way, detract from the experience in any measurable degree.

I believe the early 79 sprocket goes with the early 79 mainshaft left thrust washer (35361-56) and the late 79-84 sprocket goes with the late 79-84 mainshaft left thrust washer (35216-79). They show up in the parts books at the same time (September 1979, 99451-80).
