Subject:  Interim report - O.P. 38TD8-1/8 Lube Oil Pump Drive Bracket;
          part number 16705716 (part of pump flex drive, part number
          1669073); Report Number 94-004.

On 25 August 1994, Philadelphia Electric Company notified Coltec
Industries, Fairbanks Horse Engine Division (FMED) that the subject item
"displayed abnormal ware and pitting which is believed to have been
caused by a mismatched bracket".

The subject item is manufactured by Fairbanks Morse Engine Division. All
U.S. nuclear power stations with FMED 81/8 Opposed Piston Emergency
Diesel Generator Sets are potentially affected.

An investigation into the nature and extent of this problem is currently
under way by FMED Engineering.  At this time: however, the potential
impact, root cause, and corrective action are indeterminate.

A final report will be made available as soon as the formal evaluation is
