Screw #20 used to be shorter than screw #18, just as you see in the drawing at the top. The new models have done away with this short screw and now use the larger screw in its place. You can retrofit without problems.
the metal housing with bezel does not include the plastic sockets. The bezel is already mounted as is the bezel lock screw. Sockets will have to be ordered separately, if needed.
if you replace the rack, you will also have to replace the adhesive scale (#26).
four plastic sockets are used in assembling this gage. The central openings may be oblong or round. These sockets are often destroyed in the process of disassembly and will need to be replaced.
Gib stripe, the coppery metal strip is now used in place of the two former parts (the black plastic strip and the spring metal strip). You will only need one gib. We don't know why B&S chose to call it a "stripe".
Crystal replacement for current models (be sure you have the model number correct): the old crystals (clear plastic) could be removed with a simple tool that acts like a suction cup but in our experience this seldom works. You may have no other choice but to break the crystal in order to remove it. You can improvise other methods but you're likely to cause damage. If the bezel is still round and in very good condition, you can probably just press the new crystal in place using your thumbs. If the bezel is dented or bent out of shape, then it's best to leave this to someone with the right tools.
