I bought an alternator baracket set for my Max wedge project off of partslimited. And it was brand new and perfect to me, with both brackets the bolt and 3 spacers. Thick metal like stock and fit in every way it was meant to. Even had top on it, to show how it mounted. But it was advertised as NS1. I admit I don't know all the terms. I think NOS means new old stock but not having to be original. I see motor mounts saying this for 49.95 and has a carquest part number on it that I buy for 6 bucks. Or like the cuda nos road lamps for 30 bucks when you can get them for 7.41. But I don't know how to apply the NS1. would someone be so kind as to further my knowledge? Thanks for your help

NS1 means a part's production has been discontinued & when the on-hand supply runs out, you're "up a creek..." So, for intents & purposes, NS1 means it's no longer available (although it MAY be available until supplies run out) from the new car dealer.

As I recall NS1 is 'Not Serviced'. It has been a while since I worked in parts but NS1 was the first step after the part was not avaialable nationally. I never saw many examples but there are NS2, NS3, etc. parts also. Never have gotten a good explanation of what that all meant. I wonder where John Cambridge is?? He'd probably know.

The guy that owns partslimited.com has 3 left of the non ac 67 and up and 1 left of the 66 and down. He used to run a dealership with his dad from 71 to 84 or something like that. He has a bunch of stuff forsale. The brackets were 64 bucks shipped to your door.

John:
Have you ever seen the NS2, NS3 designations? Back in '75 I was sure that one of our price books (yeah books, no computer!) had NS designations other than '1'.

Had to look this one up. This is what I found in my old notes.

Not Serviced Codes

NS0 = Glass distributor supplied part
NS1 = Canceled Part Number
NS2 = Do Not Service (Not sure what that means)
NS3 = Canceled - Phased out - No Demand
NS4 = Serviced as assembly only
NS5 = Serviced NOT as assembly
NS6 = Serviced in a package
NS7 = Canceled - Not used in production
NS8 = Make-Trim Part ( I assume that means you have to make an alternative part fit?)
NS9 = Paintable Trim Part
