I don't actually have any examples of the Mergenthaler Linotype Company's "Parts List" series of service documentation. They are referred to in several Linotype Improvement Information Sheets. (In at least one Linotype Improvement Information Sheet, No. 336, this parts list is called a "part number".)
I am not yet clear on the relationship, if any, between these "Parts Lists" and the " Lists."
Also, at some point it appears as if Parts List designations (of the form NN-NNNN-NN) started to be used to designate individual parts. This seems especially to be the case for the Comet. (But the Comet parts book I have uses the traditional letter+4digit form.)
