242A question

#1

Post by BryanWP »

Hey guys.
Did the 242A (production 34-36) include the pinned pump on them throughout all 3 years, or did they switch over to a pump with air hole, not pinned?

I thought they all had a NRV and a pinned pump. I have a 6/35 and it does. I’m not sure if in 36’ something was changed.

What’s the purpose of the pin? To keep it from coming all the way when pumping?
