SUBJECT:        INTERIM REPORT #4 of 10CFR Part 21 Evaluation

REFERENCE:      Crane Letter Dated May 16, 1994

Gentlemen:

This letter is a follow-up to the referenced letter, in which Crane Valves
Nuclear Operations advised that we were undertaking an investigation to
determine if data supplied in the mid-1980's was used by Nuclear Utilities
to set torque switches in Motor Operated Valves.

As described in the May correspondence, over 600 issues of Engineering
calculations have been generated and the scope of that evaluation is even
greater than we initially anticipated.  As of this date, we have uncovered
no contractual evidence to support the fact that Crane supplied erroneous
data to Utilities, since most orders do not specify the objective of our
earlier evaluations.

It is expected that the evaluation will be completed within the next 30
days.  Any questions can be directed to my attention at 815-740-7571.

Sincerely,


Henry G.L. McCullough, P.E.
Manager Engineering/
Quality Assurance
