Source And Maintenance Codes

a. AIR FORCE SOURCE CODE (Column (2) (a)). The explanation of source codes is as follows;

PI - Identifies parts which may be requisitioned and installed by any maintenance level c on s is tent with the Command's authorized scope of maintenance. This code is applied to parts which are impractical to manufacture.

P1D - Identifies parts which may be requisitioned and installed by USAF activities authorized depot-level maintenance only. This code is applied to parts which are impractical for service manufacture.

P2 - Identifies in s u r an c e-type spare parts which can be installed by any USAF activity consistent with the Command's authorized scope of maintenance. This code is applied to parts which are basi cally structural and for which no usage is anticipated or known and parts which require special tools, templates and/or jigs and are very difficult impractical, or uneconomical to manufacture by USAF activities, These items are not subject to periodic replacement or wearout but may require infrequent replacement as a result of accidents or other unexpected occurrences. Delayed procurement items, as defined in AMCR 65-41, are included under this code.

A - Identifies items capable of being assembled at any level of maintenance and is applied to assemblies of two or more parts the majority of which are purchased and/or service manufacture,

X - Parts considered impractical for service manufacture or procurement and for which no usage is anticipated. Code X iB applied to main structure members or similar parts which, if repaired, would suggest extensive repair. The need for a part or parts coded X should normally result in a recommendation to retire the article from service.

XI - Identifies parts applicable at any level of maintenance consistent with the Command's authorized scope of maintenance, and for which procurement of the next larger assembly so coded PI is normally justified; for example, an integral detail part such as a welded segment inseparable from its assembly; a part machined ina matched set; or a part of any assembly which, if required, would suggest extensive reconditioning of each assembly. In some cases XI may be used to indicate an integral detail part of an assembly for which there is no anticipated usage and as an assembly was coded M or Ml to be manufactured as a matched set, welded assembly, etc.
