There is also a -10HR (hand receipt) which lists everything you are supposed to get with your new HMMWV from the factory…

The -20 (three books) has technical information for repairs at the battalion level. This is where you will find most repairs and replacement and adjustment procedures.

The -34’s has the depot level repairs and parts.
