          FAN MOTOR BEARING INDICATIONS

          FINAL 10CFR21 NOTIFICATION



     REF: 1)   TU Electric letter logged TXX-96034 dated January 29, 1996

               from C. L. Terry to the USNRC

Gentlemen:



Per reference 1, TU Electric notified the NRC in accordance with

10CFR21.21(a)(2) of a deviation that TU Electric is evaluating for

reportability per 10CFR21.  Reference 1 noted that the evaluation of this

deviation would be completed by February 29, 1996.  The purpose of this

letter is to update the status of the evaluation.



The bearings for the two Unit 2 Fan Coil Units (FCUs) have been inspected

and no linear indications were identified.  The bearings for the two Unit

1 FCUs have not been inspected.  The evaluation to date has not

identified a deviation which could create a substantial safety hazard and

TU Electric believes that this condition is not reportable per 10CFR21.

The Unit 1 FCU bearings will be inspected prior to installation of the

FCUs during the upcoming refueling outage on Unit 1.



As required by 10CFR21, TU Electric will notify the NRC if a deviation is

identified during inspection of the Unit 1 bearings which could create a

substantial safety hazard.



                                   Sincerely,



                                   C. L. Terry



                                   By:

                                      D. R. Woodlan
